iPhone, iPad and iPod platform holder Apple has confirmed that it will stop offering free bumpers and cases to iPhone 4 owners on September 30th.

The free case program that was launched in July in the fallout of the Antennagate controversy where it was revealed that the iPhone 4 would drop signal if held tightly or in a certain position.

However, Apple has always insisted that the furore was overblown and that the iPhone 4 only suffered the same level of signal degradation as many of its smartphone rivals.

We now know that the iPhone 4 antenna attenuation issue is even smaller than we originally thought,” the firm said upon confirmation of the case program closure.

The Apple made iPhone 4 bumper costs between 20-25 on the High Street.
