Apple press conference: Free iPhone 4 cases for every owner, says Steve Jobs
At Apple's iPhone 4 press conference today in Cupertino, Calif., Steve Jobs declared that iPhone 4 owners will receive a free case for their handsets in what is widely regarded as a cheap fix to the antenna problems that have surfaced with a tiny percentage of users, according to the AP and other news sources.
Jobs said the company has sold 3 million iPhone 4's in three weeks, with a complaint rate of only .55 percent.
iPhone 4 owners will have a choice of an official Apple bumper case, but the company can't make enough of them, so it will allow consumers to buy cases by other manufacturers and receive a refund from Apple.
Apple will make a Website available for the cases late next week.
