Find out what Apple may be doing to deter any potential problems after the break.
Until this week, the only iPhone 4 cases available from the Apple store were the Apple-produced Bumper cases, with no slide-on cases to be found. And some think that this is because Apple is aware of the potential for these cases to cause cracks and shattering through no fault of the user — they didn't want to officially endorse a slide-on case that, once removed, might show a scratched, cracked, or even shattered iPhone 4. Although more cases are now available on Apple's site, retail locations don't have them.
Perhaps this explains why people close to the development of the iPhone 5 say it will have a completely different form factor than any current iPhone.
