Apple Introduces iPhone 4 Case Program

Apple has introduced its iPhone 4 Case Program, in which owners of the iPhone 3 are able to get a free bumper to help address bad antenna issues.

From the Apple website: “If you purchase an iPhone 4 before September 30, 2010, you are eligible to receive an iPhone 4 Bumper or a select third-party case from Apple at no charge. Get an iPhone 4 Bumper or case at no charge.”

To apply for a free case, users must download the iPhone 4 Case Program app from the App Store, launch the app on their iPhone 4 and follow the prompts. The Apple website states: “For iPhone 4 purchases made before July 23, 2010, you must apply no later than August 22, 2010; otherwise, you must apply within 30 days of your iPhone 4 purchase. To qualify for this program, you must purchase your iPhone 4 by September 30, 2010.”

The company has also announced the delay of the white iPhone 4. Apple stated: “White models of Apple’s new iPhone 4 have continued to be more challenging to manufacture than we originally expected, and as a result they will not be available until later this year. The availability of the more popular iPhone 4 black models is not affected.”
