    Doesn't look they are offering a dock this time. They weren't very good anyway. Elevation Lab is apparently doing one, but it won't be available for a while.

    Docks with smaller connectors (ie lightning\microUSB, etc) are really flimsy and tend to either break the dock or the port really easily. I had a SGSII and broke 1 dock and 1 phone because you literally have to line it all up to make it work right, and the dock has to literally go halfway up the phone to support it properly.

    that really sucks, I found the docks to really come in handy and made your work space look at lot nicer

    This is very true, But I think Apple may have planned for it by moving the headphone jack to the bottom. Utilising both the lightning port and the headphone jack could make for a sturdy dock (like the shuffle dock). Put a linked headphone port on the back a la the universal dock and bobs your uncle: sturdy dock with no lack of functionality.
