When Steve Jobs took to the stage at the WWDC Conference, not many people expected the Apple CEO to announce that Apple would be manufacturing its own accessories to accompany its new range of iPhones dropping at the end of the month.

The accessories, known as “Bumpers”, slip around the edge of the iPhone 4, come in rubber and molded plastic and in Apple’s words “add a touch of style to any phone.”
