When Apple introduced the iPhone 5, there was one seemingly absent accessory: a dock. Apple did introduce other Lightning accessories, including a 30-pin adapter and USB cable. They also announced HDMI and VGA cables would be coming.
In an email published on 9to5Mac, Apple Senior Vice President of Marketing Phil Schiller confirmed that they have no plans on producing an iPhone 5 dock. In a response to a customer inquiry about an Apple-made dock, Schiller wrote:
We do not plan on making a dock for the iPhone 5. Most people who use docks use them with speaker or clock systems.
Schiller signed the email Sent from my iPhone 5. The iPhone 5 launches on Friday, September 21st at 8 a.m. local time.

- On your nightstand, your iPhone docked, Airplay sound and video to AppleTV and/or Airplay Speakers.
- Your iPhone docked on your desk, so it's not floating around and getting covered by paperwork. Always at sight in the right place. Easy to see who's calling.
Gross. Why would you want to cover something so beautiful, thin, light, and durable? Enjoy your iPhone
