Good news, everyone…the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S have the same form factor, so you won’t need to upgrade your case if you’re upgrading your phone. The wealth of iPhone 4 cases already available are ready to go for you, but some manufacturers would like to make sure you’re aware of that. And so, here’s a list of official iPhone 4S case announcements to make sure you’re ready with some protection when your new iPhone arrives next Friday.
Leading accessory maker Cygnett has announced the launch of their all new iPhone 4S case line-up. Among the new products are the Ripple, FlexiGel and SecondSkin II.
- Making its debut on the iPhone 4S, the Ripple ensures all-over scratch-resistant and impact-resistant protection for your iPhone. The wave-like surface design feels good in your hand and immediately differentiates your iPhone in a tactile way. Made of TPU, known as one of the toughest protective materials on the planet, the Ripple features raised edges that protect the touchscreen and corners. The Ripple is available in Black and Blue for a MSRP of $16.99.
- Scratch-resistant and impact-resistant, the classic FlexiGel offers all-over protection for your iPhone, no matter the occasion. Durable yet flexible, the sturdy TPU hugs the contours of your phone for premium protection, while the raised edges shield the touchscreen in case your phone falls screen-down on a flat surface. The FlexiGel is available in Black, Purple, and Pink for a MSRP of $14.99.
- This hugely popular case for iPhone 4 is making its smooth transition to the iPhone 4S.This soft slim-fitting case is the essential choice for iPhone protection. Moulded to fit your iPhone like a glove, the SecondSkin II is soft to the touch. It’s flexible and lightweight, yet tough on protection. Raised side edges protect the touchscreen. The SecondSkin II is available in Black for a MSRP of $14.99.
CEO Tim Cook confirmed today after months of rumors and third party reports that this will be the date of availability for the iPhone 4S. OtterBox will be ready for the drop.
Defender Series, Reflex Series, Commuter Series and Impact Series will be coming in a variety of fall and winter colors. Customers can also look forward to an entirely new option; camo will be sneaking into the lineup.
WaterField Designs has announced the iPhone Wallet (a leather wallet with an innovative window to see and hear the Apple iPhone 4S, plus pockets for credit cards and cash) and the iPhone Hint (a slim leather sleeve also with an iPhone window and a pocket for credit cards).
Both iPhone Cases are customized to fit the iPhone 4S and are available in brown or black, naturally-tanned leather. They’re available now for pre-order, and will ship by October 31, 2011.
