Apple to end free iPhone 4 case offer

Apple will end its free iPhone case offer at the end of September, saying that the antenna problem was smaller than originally thought.

In July Apple CEO Steve Jobs told a US press conference that the company will offer a free Bumper case to all iPhone 4 buyers as a way around the much-reported signal problems.

That said, the company will still offer to provide a free case to the "small percentage of iPhone 4 users" who need one.

"We now know that the iPhone 4 antenna attenuation issue is even smaller than we originally thought," Apple said. "A small percentage of iPhone 4 users need a case and we want to continue providing them a Bumper case for free."
