If you’ve been wondering what will happen to Apple’s iPhone 4 Bumpers after the free case program ends on 30 September, you’re not alone. An Australian Macworld reader thought that exact question was worthy of an email to Steve Jobs:

Apple’s CEO responded, with a typically brief email:

So if you want an iPhone 4 Bumper, but don’t subscribe to the Henry Ford colour choice model, you should soon be able to grab a Bumper in whatever hue you desire (so long as its either green, blue, pink, orange, white or black) . The white iPhone 4 may still be missing in action, but now you can get part way there with a white Bumper.
