    Apple designs their docks to be just the right size for just the phone. Otherwise those with out cases on their phones, their phone wouldn't sit right in the dock, the hole would be too wide. Plus most 3rd party cases are different shapes and sizes. There are a few if any (none that I know of) actual docks that are made to dock a device with a case on.

  • Yes... Twelve South makes a dock/stand, HiRise for iPhone that will work with a cased phone.

  • No. This dock was designed to exactly fit the iPhone 5c without a case. Same goes for the iPhone 5s version. I have owned these types of docks which Apple also made for the iPhone 3G & 3GS and the 4 and 4S.

  • I know the ElevationDock and Dock+ will work with a case but there like 100 bucks. Was hoping that now apple has a official case of their own, they would make at least make it work with their case. They would sell more of there cases that way.

  • If this dock is anything like previous Apple docks than no. You may be able to get away with a screen protector and back shield but you will more than likely not be able to use this with a case on

  • No. You cannot even use the case from Apple with the dock.

  • Yes
    However your limited to a few case choices.

    speck products iphone-5-cases/candyshell-flip-for-iphone-5 (this is a portion of the URL, full address's are not allowed)
    Look for "CandyShell Flip for iPhone 5s & iPhone 5"

    It appears to have a silicone based hinge, allowing the user to pull the bottom portion down and off the phone in order to dock the iPhone.

    There may be others out there, I just haven't discovered them yet.
