    Does anyone know if Apple is releasing a desk dock like they've had for every other iPhone? I love having the dock and it's just a habit to place the phone in the dock as soon as I get to my desk.

    I have the desk dock I bought with the 4. I never used it though as I couldn't be bothered to keep taking the case off. With iCloud do people hook there iPhone up to their desktop all that often? Either that or apple are busy making lightning adapters so haven't got them ready yet. After all the adapters aren't going to be ready at launch. I would wait a while and look for a non apple (cheaper) alternative.

    I don't use the desk dock for syncing, but for charging. Like I said, it's really habit at this point and I absolutely hate loose wires on my desk (my wife doesn't use a dock and always has the connector cable just flinging around with other paperwork on her desk, would drive me nuts).

    Not a big deal

    Is it just me or does this just not seem like as big of a deal as it should be? I mean we have gotten a dock with every iphone that i can remember at least as far back as 3g anyways, and at release. Heck it was shown at keynotes I think, at least in pictures not really ever talked about. But still no dock for the 5? Could it be that the new dock connector is the issue? Ill be way disappointed if I got to buy a 3rd party dock, it will ruin my Apple look (I have a iPad and iPad dock).

    Despite all these new features mentioned above, Apple still haven't created a phone that doesn't need charging daily (Or more).

    I doubt anyone knows for certain. Looking history is your best bet at this point.

    Subjective matter. It's certainly not you. It's never just one person on any topic.

    I was actually a little surprised by the lack of iPhone accessories available for the iPhone 5. I would have expected at a minimum a dock and maybe a bumper or some sort of new case. I guess they spent all of their time on the new earphones. :p

    I've been using the dock that came with my original iPhone for the past five years - I love that it still works like a charm with my 4S :)
