Apple solves Verizon iPhone dilemma with universal bumper

iPhone 4 gets universal bumper case for Verizon

Apple has already addressed the problem of needing new cases for the Verizon iPhone 4 model by quietly seeding a new, universal bumper case into shops. A visit to the Apple Store discovered a new official case whose cutout for the mute switch is designed to work with both the regular GSM iPhone and the lower mute switch placement on the CDMA edition. The volume buttons and most other elements are virtually unchanged.

The change will likely leave Apple as one of the few offering a truly universal case when the Verizon iPhone is ready on February 10. Some case manufacturers have so far been making Verizon-specific models that wouldn't necessarily work with the GSM model.

Apple hasn't changed the descriptions of its cases online and suggests it either hasn't updated the bumper through its online store or is simply giving it equal treatment. [via Engadget]
