Any apple products with an otter box will not fit an ihome. The connector will not be able to let it fit. The ipad3 will fit without a case. For the iphone 5, you will have to get a lightning to 30 pin connector.

Yes if you buy the new adapter Lightning to 30 pin adapter for the iPhone 5 ON A 0.2M CORD. ($29.99 from Apple store) The single piece smaller adapter without the cord will NOT work with the defender case. You can also use the USB connection with the cord that came with the phone on the ihome 99 but not sure if you can play music and charge at the same time. I am waiting to hear from ihome on that .

NO it will not, the lighting pin does not reach far enough to charge, with the Otterbox. Another oversight on iHome designers. It will work with out the case.
