The warranty company said that in the first four months since the release of the iPhone 4, the smartphone has 82% more claims for shattered screens compared to iPhone 3GS figures from the summer of 2009.

In interview with ComputerWorld, Vince Tseng, vice president of marketing for SquaeTrade, said that the handset's glass back may be causing the surge in claims.

"You now have twice as much glass to scratch or break," Tseng said. Previous iPhone models such as the 3GS had a plastic back.
