    I'm thinking maybe the conference will announce 2 things?

    1 - New iphones will come with a very thin plastic (or some material) coating to prevent signal loss.

    2 - Any current iphone user can go to a genuis bar and get their iphone "fixed" and have this coating put on which is the same as getting a new one from the factory (this is what they could claim).

    Hopefully they won't charge $29.99 for the plastic coating though.

    This seems the most cost efficient idea for Apple. Maybe they've been weighing a completely new design with one that is simpler and can be applied to the 1.7million people who already have iphones.

    Well if they do I'm not interested. I like the bare metal, a plastic coating would ruin the look and feel of the stainless steel.
