What company made the iPhone 4 bumper?

I'd like to see it for the iPhone 5 the same quality bumper

Well, originally, Apple did:

»store.apple.com/us/product/MC839···er-black

And for what's it worth, I don't believe they made one for the iPhone 5 but there are some out there.

Apple makes the iPhone 4/4S bumper.

I own an iPhone 4S with a bumper currently, and its a great accessory to the device. You don't even notice there is a case on it, the quality feels excellent, and I've dropped my phone several times onto hard surfaces with no damage.

Holding the iPhone 5 without a bumper, I have to say that I miss the feel.

I have the Photive Hybrid bumper for iPhone 5. It has great fit but rubberized buttons instead of metal ones. It is as close to the OEM iPhone 4 bumper as I could find, at least at the time.

I'd like to see it too ... I found a generic bumper at Target for the iPhone 5. Even though it looked identical to the 4/4s bumper down to the metal buttons, it lacked the semi-rubberized finish more of a vinyl plasticky feel and some rough casting ridges. Back it went.

i am not familiar with the bumper case, but i bought this one for my iPhone5:
»www.cellairis.com/product/cellai···gunmetal

they have a large selection of cases available and some of the "cell phone kiosks" carry their products at reasonable prices (i think my case was $20-$25).

A "bumper" is not a "case" -- it's a rubber "band" that goes around the edge of an iPhone. I don't think the OP is interested in actual case.

Wow - I ordered this and it just came in today. It's a dead ringer for the old iPhone4 case. The plastic feels a little cheaper where the rubber meets the ABS, but it fits great. For $2.80 shipped, you can't beat it.

Nice, that actually looks like its better made than the Apple one, which has the soft rubber on the outside edges which wears out quickly and starts to split off from the plastic middle...

I'm definitely gonna order one of these when/if I get an iPhone 5.
