When Apple first announced and introduced the iPhone 5 to the general public, there was one accessory that remained absent: a dock. The Cupertino California company introduced other accessories that utilized the new smaller connector, Lightning but the dock just didn’t end up being one of them. Included in these accessories was a 30-pin adapter, a USB cable, an HDMI and VGA cable, etc.
In a recent email published to the folks over at 9to5Mac, Apple Senior vice President of Marketing, Phil chiller, confirmed that they have no plans on producing an iPhone 5 dock. As a response to a customer inquiry about the possibility of an Apple-made dock, Schiller responded with the following:
We do not plan on making a dock for the iPhone 5. Most people who use docks use them with speaker or clock systems.
