Accessory Manufacturers Already Working On Fourth Generation iPhone Cases

The Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) gets underway in less than three weeks from now. Apple has traditionally used the WWDC platform to unveil its next generation iPhone.

There have been speculations in the past few weeks that the fourth generation iPhone (iPhone 4G) may not only be unveiled but also may go on sale during the event. 

Earlier this week, we had noted from sources that Cupertino had contracted Taiwanese manufacturer Foxconn to ship nearly 4.5 million iPhone 4G units just for the month of June. The source had also reported that over 24 million units of the new iPhone model was likely to be shipped by the end of this year.

The success of iPhone is not only important for Apple and its partners, but also for the several manufacturing units in countries like China that produce custom accessories for these iPhones. Traditionally, these accessory manufacturers wait until the product is unveiled before designing the accessories. However this year, a lot of information with respect to the design and form factor of the new iPhone is already known thanks to the pictures and videos leaked by Gizmodo and other technology websites.

According to reports on HardMac, iPhone accessory manufacturers in China have started manufacturing cases for iPhone 4G. As you can see from the images published below, the cases have iPhone 4G's purported form factor incorporated in their design. The cases also contain special slots to account for the iPhone's camera flash.

Quite evidently, these designs are based upon the iPhone models showcased on Gizmodo. It is not clear if the third party accessory manufacturers have commenced mass production of these cases. As MacRumors points out, the design of the cases is proof of the confidence that the manufacturers have on the authenticity of the leaked images. 

Considering the way Apple has gone after Gizmodo in the lost-iPhone case, we doubt if there will be significant changes in the iPhone model expected to be unveiled on June 7. 

We can't wait to get our hands on the next generation iPhone. How about you?
