Less cases for iPhone 5

I haven't seen any good cases. They also don't have any docks. What gives?

But the iPhone 5 is here to stay. I don't know what makes people think this phone is any different than any other iPhone.

What are YOU using as a dock?

Most stores are carrying more iPhone 5 cases than other iPhones already. Many have the 4/4S cases at reduced or clearance prices.

Remember though there have been over 2 full years of the 4/4S design and many more of those out there than the 5 so of course there are more overall options for cases and other accessories.

The iPhone Accessories subforum has a vast amount of case suggestions, you might want to take a look there.

Also, the Belkin Charge and Sync dock is available for quite some time now, among others.
Thumb resize.

What are you talking about Thailand for? I live in America, just visited the Apple Store today, which was a LONG drive and guess what?

They told me there WERE no docks for the iPhone 5 and not many accessories either.

Don't bother. It isn't made by apple therefor it's inferior and not worthy of him, yet many aspects of the iPhone itself are inferior to him. So he's sticking with only apple products.

I'm just saying what Apple told me. I really do hate iHome products, they're the worst.

Does Apple even support third party?

What? Seriously. Wtf?

These third party devices are made specifically to work with the iPhone. Why wouldn't they support third party. Unless the unit is a total piece of crap that is poorly built, it will work with the iPhone.

I don't know, because I've seen some third party products and they were pretty crappy.

I suppose you are the kind that only buy Monster brand cables and would not lower yourself to shop at Monoprice for about a 80% savings? Same concept, you are severly limiting yourself. If Apple isn't making docks with the lightning connector, that should tell you that 3rd party is your only resort.

There are plenty of cases for the iPhone 5. Go to Best Buy, Target, Walmart, and countless companies online. Every week we see more iPhone 5 docks coming out. There is a thread here on Macrumors that show dozens of docks. And the title of your thread should have been:

"Fewer cases for iPhone 5"

"Less cases for iPhone 5" is grammatically incorrect.

which is exactly what I said. Unless they are crap, they will work. Do some research and read reviews before buying. Be an educated shopper. Don't go on advertisements alone. When you don't know what you are buying, you will likely get burned.
