This week's Best Case Scenario takes a different spin on things: cases that add a bit of extra functionality to your already super duper iOS devices. Need a keyboard for you iPad? No problem. How about one for your iPhone? Stop your bellyachin'--they make those, too. We've even got cases to open beer bottles and carry your credit card. Read on to find out if these kitschy cases are really worth your cash.
If you just returned from your local Apple or Verizon Wireless store with a shiny new iPhone 4 in your hand, you may be planning to buy a case next. This has become a particularly thorny problem, since the AT&T and Verizon versions of the handset feature a slightly different button arrangement and cases made for one may not work with the other. Never fear, MacLife.com is here to help!
It's a terrible thing, it truly is. The "racing" stripes on the new Verizon iPhone 4 are there for a reason, but they change the design of the phone so that your traditional AT&T iPhone 4 case won't fit. In most cases, the mute switch is the one that suffers. We checked out a few cases to see which ones worked and to give you a better idea of what kind of protection you should purchase for you iPhone 4.
