Apple press conference promises free iPhone cases

Apple held a press conference yesterday evening in an attempt to draw a line under recent 'antennagate' complaints. The new iPhone 4 has been criticised for a dramatic drop in signal strength when it's held in a certain way; a problem the company says is a combination of software fault – signal strength wasn't being displayed accurately – and a hardware design issue that affects all mobile phones.

At the conference, Apple CEO Steve Jobs demonstrated similar "don't hold it that way" problems with other smartphones before offering either a free case or a refund if customers have already bought an Apple case. From next week, there'll be an option on Apple's web site to arrange this. A software update to iOS version 4.0.1 software update has recently fixed the signal strength display.

The company says it's sold over 3 million units of the iPhone 4 since it was released three weeks ago.
