    Hi, the other day I read a thread saying that the gaps in the next iPhone, were infact not gaps, but instead were a rubber filling so that the phone didn't just explode when dropped. But then I noticed this:
    The rubber filling is black, on the white model... seen as Apple have even changed the colour of the headphone jack thing, I can't believe they'd leave this black. Would they? Seems a bit shabby to me... what do you guys think?

    I assume that they chose the material for other properties than its color. I assume it's the same black plastic/rubber seal used around the iPad and MacBook screens, perhaps an ABS plastic or similar.

    I don't see why they wouldn't be black. On the black-backed iPhone, which has silver siding they're black, too. I highly doubt they're color-coding them, as white rubber will stain and turn yellow/brown reeaallly easily
