Some Apple Stores to sell American flag iPhone cases for July 4th

updated 02:42 pm EDT, Fri June 28, 2013

'Select' stores getting special cases

A "select" group of US Apple Stores will be getting American flag-themed iPhone cases "starting next week," according to an internal memo. Specific stores haven't been identified, and the cases aren't described beyond their having "superior quality polycarbonate with ultra high resolution designs." Likewise, prices and compatibility haven't been mentioned.

It's unclear if the cases will be Apple-branded. That may be unlikely however, as the company hasn't produced its own iPhone cases since the bumpers it sold for the iPhone 4. Currently the only official Apple cases are produced for the iPad.

    So which stores? Not in the South - they would want the Confederate flag. Not on the West Coast - they would want an upside-down flag, or one where the stars are replaced by a peace sign. Probably not New York, for many reasons. So that pretty much leaves the Midwest and the Plains states.

    Wow, elroth, stereotype much?

    Actually, I think the joke is that the cases are probably made in China -- like most of the flags waved on July 4th, and all that red-white-and-blue merch.

    I'm going to agree with elroth, here in Commiefornia, it'll either be the gay flag or the hammer & sickle. Can't have anything with something that reflects real American values.
