Apple Calls iPhone 4 Press Conference for This Friday

It looks like the iPhone 4 "death grip" drama is coming to a head: News broke this afternoon that Apple will be holding a press conference this Friday to discuss the iPhone 4.

In typical Apple fashion, the company didn't give too much detail about what would be discussed at Friday's press conference, except that it would be about Apple's flagship smartphone, but given the press coverage surrounding the so-called "death grip," there's more than a good chance that Apple will be tackling this issue head-on.

Needless to say, it's hard to tell as yet what will come out of this press conference. Earlier this week, Consumer Reports said that it couldn't recommend the iPhone, despite the fact that it took the top spot in its rankings. Some see a recall as "inevitable, while others have suggested that Apple should give away free Bumper cases to iPhone 4 owners instead. Meanwhile, others have experienced glitches with the iPhone 4 proximity sensor.

We'll be covering Apple's press conference--and the aftermath--On Friday. See you then.
