Apple to end Antennagate free case scheme
Apple is to stop offering free cases for iPhone 4 owners, but users with antenna issues will be able to get one after the 30 September deadline.
Apple will cease offering free cases for iPhone 4 devices sold after 30 September, as the antenna issue is not now deemed as serious as the company first believed.
"For everyone else, we are discontinuing the free case programme on all iPhone 4s sold after 30 September 2010," the Cupertino company said.
"Users experiencing antenna issues should call AppleCare to request a free Bumper case."
Anyone wanting to get their hands on a free case will need to download the iPhone 4 Case Program app from the Apple App store, sign in and then select the product they want.
Apple announced the free case initiative back in July, even though chief executive (CEO) Steve Jobs was adamant the iPhone 4's design was not flawed.
Jobs accused the media of trying to "tear down" the company following reports that some users experienced drastically reduced signal strength when they held the phone in a certain way what became known as the infamous "death grip."
It appears Apple is now looking to bring an end to the Antennagate saga.
