Need Free iPhone 4 Case? There's an App for That

iPhone 4 owners who want the free case that Steve Jobs promised them can start claiming today. Rather than going through a registration process online, Apple has created an iPhone application (opens in iTunes) that guides you through the process and allows you to pick one case for free.

We don't have an iPhone 4 on hand at the moment, but Macworld lists the following cases as being available:

  • Apple Bumper (Black) 
  • Incase Snap Case (Smoke or Clear)
  • Belkin Shield Micra (Clear)
  • Griffin Motif (Smoke)
  • Griffin Reveal Etch (Black Graphite)
  • Speck Fitted (Black Tartan)
  • Speck PixelSkin HD (Black)

Mind you, just because you put in your order now doesn't mean that you'll be getting your free case next week. Some users are reporting that their free case isn't estimated to ship until September.

Those who have purchased cases prior to this deal should be receiving notice of refunds, if they haven't already been processed.

    So they have to use their defective phone for another two months. Ouch.

    They need an App to tell them 'You are holding it wrong', not a new case!

    So I don't have the slightest clue on how some factory Apple contracted with can't pump out hundreds and thousands of these little plastic cases in a single day.

    BUT, assuming there is some legit reason why Apple can't produce enough, I think it was rather smart of them to turn to other vendors for help.

    Having said that, almost positive most people will be waiting forever anyway, as they will select the "Apple Bumper" for the sole purpose that it has the word "Apple" in it.
