    So I just pre-ordered an iPhone 5 yesterday and I'm looking for an iPhone 5 dock to sit on my desk. I had the dock from Apple for my iPad, iPhone 4S and earlier phones but I am unable to find a dock for the iPhone 5 on Apples store.

    Have Apple discontinued this? I guess it's not a big deal or anything 3rd parties will produce them but I thought it was very peculiar.

    If anyone knows where I can get an iPhone 5 compatible dock let me know! :D

    I've been looking for that too. My best guess is that if it shows up at all, it'll go on sale this Friday.

    If it's not on the store by then, I guess it's been discontinued.

    Or maybe they will produce the desk dock later.

    It would have been announced by now if there was one, it still might come later. The Lightning to DVI and HDMI cables are still to come.

    Yeah, there's no reason to assume none on Friday means they'll never arrive.

    I'm not one for criticizing Apple, but it seems like they really botched the 30-pin-to-Lightning transition. Way too sloppy, way too much not done that should have been done (the Dock, the VGA/HDMI cables, for instance - the "adapter included" bungle).

    Ugh.

    There is some more info in regards to an iPhone 5 dock in this thread. Still nothing 100% but it doesn't look good :(

    It's an opportunity to sell another accessory. Someone if not Apple, will certainly make these.

    I don't see why they haven't done this now? Even if the production would start later, wouldn't they want people to pre-order it with their iPhone 5's?

    I wonder if they are purchasing actual Apple cables, and installing / repurposing them into their dock.

    I know they've been around for a while. I remember seeing them before.
