Last week we heard the shocking news that the white iPhone 4 was apparently some 0.2mm thicker than the original black version, meaning some skin-tight covers didn’t fit the former.
Well, according to Apple’s Senior Vice President of Product Marketing, Phil Schiller, that’s not actually the case (pun partially intended).
9to5Mac reader Ernesto Barron contacted Phil via Twitter to clarify the dealio with the supposedly-thicker white iPhone, and received the following response by direct message: “It is not thicker, don’t believe all the junk that you read”.
So this MacRumours reader was talking rubbish: “Just picked up the white iPhone 4 and realized it doesn't fit into my Incase slider case. It appears that Apple has increased the size of the plastic that borders the glass on both sides by about 1mm.”
As was this one: “A colleague of mine just picked up a 16 GB iPhone 4 in white. I was a bit surprised when I picked it up off his desk (I had my black 32 GB in my other hand at the same time) it immediately felt thicker.”
Phew. I’m glad that’s all done and dusted now.
