iPhone News Round-Up: Free Cases Now Available, White iPhone 4 Delayed, T-Mobile This Fall?

Fri, Jul 23, 2010

iPhone, Mobile

Even with the conference last week, there is still a lot of iPhone news buzzing these days. Today, we have the launch of the iPhone 4 ‘free case’ program, the delay of the white version of the iPhone 4 and a rumor about T-Mobile possibly carrying the iPhone 4 later this fall.

Order Your Free iPhone 4 Cases

This morning, Apple released an app for the iPhone (named “iPhone 4 Case Program”) in which you can sign in with your Apple ID and choose from a list of cases and order right from the app. Presumably, going with this route will reduce un-needed traffic on Apple.com and will guarantee that only one case per iPhone can be ordered.

To order, just grab the iPhone 4 Case Program app and order from there. All cases are expected to ship in 3-6 weeks. Additionally, if you already purchased a bumper case from Apple, you will be refunded automatically and receive an email notification when that is completed. The cases available are: a black Apple Bumper option, an Incase Snap Case, Belkin Shield Micra, Griffin Motif, Griffin Reveal, Speck Fitted and Speck PixelSkin HD.

White iPhone 4 Delayed

Apple can not be happy about this news, as they probably had assumed their iPhone 4 problems were over. The white iPhone 4, that can’t seem to catch a break, has been delayed once again. The new date is now “later this year.” The full statement released by Apple is below:

“Statement by Apple on White iPhone 4

White models of Apple’s new iPhone® 4 have continued to be more challenging to manufacture than we originally expected, and as a result they will not be available until later this year. The availability of the more popular iPhone 4 black models is not affected.”

T-Mobile iPhone Coming This Fall?

Hey, at least it’s not another Verizon rumor! According to the latest rumor, the iPhone could come to T-Mobile later this fall. The interesting piece is that T-Mobile’s network runs on GSM, the same type of network the iPhone runs on. According to the Cult of Mac, a “highly placed source” at T-Mobile has let it slip that there is “an 80% chance of getting the iPhone in Q3″. Of course, this is a rumor, and a very big rumor at that.
