When we were informed that Apple were to hold a special iPhone 4 conference last week we were certain that they were not going to issue a recall over the ongoing antenna issue. However, we did have a feeling that they would offer free iPhone bumpers or cases.
Apple did not mention the details on how we will be able to get the iPhone 4 bumper or case, but we do know that they would offer the gesture to those who have purchased one of their smartphones up until September 30.
Steve Jobs did say that Apple was struggling to manufacture enough bumpers to keep up with demand, which we explained in a recent article. We thought that we would go to the Apple Store for any kind of update.
When we visited the page where you can get the black bumper you will see a message stating that the product is “currently unavailable for sale.” This goes for all colors, but we did notice that the price reads $0.00.
Apple then state that they will be offering details on how to order soon — we expect this to be tomorrow, June 23, 2010. Once we know more we will update you.
