    Was looking at the new iPhone 5S leather case to go into my iphone 5, but have a music dock and need to use my lightning to 30 pin adaptor and dont know if the adaptor does work through the case....does anyone know this?

    I have the speck flip case which is really cool but looking to see if any other cases can allow the adaptor to work when the case is on

    any suggestions? does the above 5s leather case work?

    The best case for the adapter is the incase Pro Slider.

    The adapter connects without taking it out of the case, or even the bottom part.

    I love the case but the edges start to show cracks/seams after awhile.
    I have since switched to the Shock Slider but that one isn't adapater friendly.

    thanks, looked a video of the case and looks like the bottom bit which attaches on has a tendancy to fall off?

    thanks though, anyone got any other ideas?

    Between the 4s, 5 and 5s, I have owned about 4 of these cases and the bottom never fell off. Not sure where you heard that from.

    Another option would be the Spex Flip but that case is scratch city and wears out (and its not cheap).

    Honestly, go to Best Buy, and any case that has an opening like the picture I posted, should work for you.
