    ? Cuz the media and blogs are saying since the Free Case Program end that day, that Apple will announce iPhones "4.5" which will have new antenna and improved reception.

    Is this true, do anybody know???? :confused:

    I heard it was true. Also, it will run on Verizon and be able to run Android softwares.

    Originally, they were stopping the free case program at end of September because the were going to start bundling bumpers in the box. Now it turns out antenna gate was overblown so it's likely they'll just stop giving out the cases altogether. At least that's the impression i got from articles...

    What is September 31st? There is no such thing. The month of September ends in 30th. Apple cannot give free case forever. It's as simple as that.

    What else? Sales and demand will continue to be off the charts.

    Apple will not change the design of the iPhone 4.

    The best case scenario would be that Apple would coat over the antenna locations with non-conductive material.

    Yup, I heard it from someone who overheard Steve in the men's room at Grand Central Station...

    "The new improved iPhone 4.5 will be released on 9/31/10 and the super duper iPhone 5 will be released early on 4/1/11. Should solve all the existing problems. It might be a little larger than current models, but will have a strap to hang over your shoulder and external microphone thereby eliminating any antenna, and proximity sensor issues!"

    Likely the world will end, since that date doesn't actually exist.

    You will have exactly the chance of seeing an iPhone 4.5 on September 31 as you have of seeing that date itself.

    The white iPhone will be released. The manufacturing "difficulties" that apple talked about was a sham that allowed them to build the white iPhone differently to alleviate the problems. No harm, no foul since the white one was never released, the public can't complain that apple changed the design after millions already bought it.

    It will come out on Sept 31 in an alternate universe where they use different calendars and the iPhone 4 is powered by exotic particles and does not have a battery and connects wirelessly at 20mb/sec.

    Guys,

    Ignore this guy. He is known for starting trolling threads. Anyone that took his post serious fell for his troll practices. Not the name and move on the next time.

    Actually, you could've said it in a more, y'know, tongue-in-cheek way, rather than lamely stating the obvious.

    Nothing is going to happen to the iPhone 4, the design will remain the same.
