TiPb checks out the most must-have cases to best show off -- and protect -- your new white iPhone 4
Just get a new white iPhone 4 and curious as to which cases will better show it off? Want to protect that beautiful glass display (and glass back!) and keep that white looking bright? Well read on for the TiPb store's top 10 most recommended, most must-have white iPhone cases to get your started.
BodyGuardz Protective Skins
What's a better case than almost no case at all? With BodyGuardz protective skins you get the next best thing to naked, "made from the same material that is used to shield the front of automobiles from stones and other abrasive elements." (And we've tested to prove it). If you want to enjoy your precious new white iPhone almost the way Jony Ive intended, this is the way to go. [TiPb store link]
- InvisibleShield, for those who prefer this brand of film. [TiPb store link]
- Tat Skinz Carbon Fiber from the same people who make BodyGuardz with a great grip ad feel. [TiPb store link]
- DODOCase BookBack packs luxury leather into a super slim skin. [TiPb store link]
While protective films cover the glass, bumpers cover and defend the antenna and give you enough of an edge you can put your iPhone down without having to worry about it coming in contact with any potentially damaging surfaces. If you're in a low signal area they'll also stop you from "holding it wrong". Plus, the black, white, green, blue, orange, and pink colors look really sweet on the white iPhone -- there's a reason all of Apple's initial bumper art was shown off on white. [Apple Store link]
- Element Case Vapor Case for high end, hypercar style bumper-ing [Element Case link]
- Mobi Bumper is so inexpensive you can easily justify getting one each of the clear, gray, pink, and purple [TiPb store link]
Case-Mate Chrome Barely There Skin Case
You knew I had to pic this, right? If you're worried about the white iPhone 4 being 0.2mm thicker than the black iPhone 4, stop. The Case-Mate Chrome fits the white iPhone 4 perfectly. And sure it covers up a lot of the back... but it does it with chrome and, frankly, it looks stunning! It remains one of my favorite all-time cases and with good reason -- it protects my iPhone while giving me unconstrained use of the screen and big opening around the dock and other ports so all my other accessories, like car chargers, fit.

Mobi Metal Back are inexpensive and look absolutely fabulous on the white iPhone 4. [TiPb store link] White Diamonds and white iPhone 4 equals gorgeous. I'm not even joking. Swoon. [White Diamonds link]
Overboard Pro White Waterproof Case
Life's a beach, but at least with Overboard you can take your beautiful new white iPhone 4 to one without worrying it will suffer water damage. It's also great for long soaks in the tub, jogging in the rain, or even diving into the pool and going through the car wash! You can get it with matching earphones for the total water win. I don't vacation without it. [TiPb store link]
- Aquapac, if light blue is more your thing [TiPb store link]
- Golla bags are great if you hike more than splash. [TiPb store link]
Mophie juice pack air
Okay, this doesn't really show off your white iPhone 4, but it will keep it charged up so you can show it off longer and to many more people. Charge it separately or charge both your iPhone and the case together and you'll get up to double the amount of music, talking, gaming, and everything else you love doing on your iPhone. Great for road warriors, travelers, and serious shoppers alike! [TiPb store link]
- Mophie juice pak plus gives even more power for slightly more expense. [TiPb store link]
