Want Your Free Case? There Is An App For That!

Last Friday Apple held a press conference during which they announced that they would be providing free cases to iPhone 4 users who request them to improve reception issues that they may be experiencing on their phones. Today Apple kicked off the program by making the iPhone 4 Case Program app available in the iPhone App store. If you want a new case you will need to install the app on your phone to submit your request because Apple requires information that the app collects from your phone.

If you purchased an iPhone 4 before today (July 23, 2010) you must submit your request by no later than August 22, 2010. People who buy a phone between today and September 30, 2010 must submit their request within 30 days of purchase. I guess the reason why Apple isn’t just providing a free case with new purchases is that they are supplying the program through special supplies of cases and don’t want to impact store inventory.
