What is with them? A highly overpriced bit of plastic and it won't even work with their own make highly overpriced leather case.

Astoundingly appalling design from our favourite designers! Does nobody talk to each other there?!

It wouldn't be so bad if those cases came off with ease, but I'm guessing if you keep stretching and removing the £35!!!! case which is a real struggle, it'll become ruined and won't fit properly anymore and no doubt they won't change it because 'you're not meant to keep taking it off!'

35 quid for case and 25 for a bit of plastic. Nice one Apple. £60 worth of unusable.

That's £35GB. What a joke. Same price as the case,

Will they take the other one back after 3 months. How long is the lead?

Apple tax. In my situation, its actually cheaper to just replace the cables than it is to use an adapter.

They probably won't accept a return on something 3 months old. The adapter is 0.2 m long.

Thanks. I'll check it out. A lot of the cradles on the speaker docks are quite spindly for the 5S. When the 4 sat on it, it was more stable but with that adaptor and 5S out of its Apple case it does look very fragile on them.
