With every version of the iPhone that is released, consumers look for new accessories to use together with their phones. One of these accessories which can be used with the iPhone 4S is the Bumper, which is described below.
The Bumper for the iPhone 4 or the iPhone 4S is basically a plastic and rubber ring which will go around the phone’s edge. On the inside area, rubber is used, while the external area uses plastic. The Bumper will protect the device’s edges by wrapping them, but it offers smaller protection for the screen. The rear or the front areas of the phone are not covered but the phone is raised a bit so it doesn’t stand directly on the surface where it’s placed. That band of plastic comes with metallic buttons which can be used to wake/sleep or to control the volume of the phone. There are also six holes on it, so you have access to the headphone jack, the connector for the dock, the mute switch, microphones and the speaker. You can find these Bumpers in white, black, orange, green, pink and blue. In most cases the Bumper will work both on the iPhone 4S and the iPhone 4, since they have the same dimensions and design.
Thanks to the huge popularity of the iPhone 4, there are thousands of different types of skins and cases you can buy for your new phone. Some people might want something to protect their phone in different conditions, others might want something to enhance the design of the phone. Whatever you might need, chances are that you will find a manufacturer that already makes it. You will find luxurious accessories but you will also find cheap alternatives that do the job just as well. Some cases are made from silicone, some from soft rubber and you can even find cases made from a harder poly carbonate.
