We heard last week that some people found the white iPhone 4 to be just a little fatter than the black iPhone 4 model, which was causing some meltdowns in iPhone 4 case manufacturing facilities worldwide ensuing massive panic! Kidding, not many people actually cared as the device most likely would have fit in most cases regardless.
Consumer Reports pulled a mythbusters episode for us and demonstrates that the white iPhone 4 is in fact the same thickness as the black iPhone 4 as seen in the pic above. Both measuring 0.37inches thick, or thin, however you wish to look at it.
Here’s what Consumer Reports had to say;
when we compared a white iPhone 4 with a black iPhone 4 in our Yonkers, NY, lab using high-quality calipers, we found they were both the same thickness (0.37 inches). This supports Apple’s assertion that the devices are the same size…’recommend’ that you get a case with your iPhone 4 to mitigate any reception issue… But at least you don’t have to worry about it not fitting.
