According to an email from Apple's SVP of Marketing to a customer, Apple has no plans to make a dock for the iPhone 5 that fits the phone's special new lightning connector.
Schiller's email was leaked to 9to5Mac.
In the email, Schiller says:
We do not plan on making a dock for the iPhone 5. M ost people who use docks use them with speaker or clock systems.
Historically, Apple has always made a dock for new iPhone models. But it looks like customers will have to rely on third party accessory makers this time around.
