    Doesn't work

    • Written by from Baltimore

    I used to love my iPhone Dock. It was great until about two months after I bought it when it stopped doing anything. The dock will simply not work at charging. I am very disappointed.

    Design Flaw

    • Written by from Glenn Dale

    The iPhone 5c Dock does not allow the phone to be charged with case attached. Also, if the case is removed, you have to constantly adjust in order for it to begin to charge. This is not a good product!

    Does not charge when you need it most.

    Does not charge the phone when using this dock with a 30-pin to lightning adapter connected to a third-party speaker (Yamaha), HOWEVER one CAN charge the phone eliminating the dock and using the 30-pin to lightning adapter directly between the phone and speaker?! What gives apple? Why make this so difficult for consumers?!?

    Not to mention... I mean, NOT TO MENTION, why would you not include a cable that costs less than $1 to make with the docking station? Are you trying to upset consumers? What marketing genius got promoted from this idea?

    Lastly, I was also disturbed with the design requiring that I remove the case to fit the phone in the dock. It would have been useful to add flexibility by making the space wider and including a spacing adapter in the docking kit. Not that hard to figure out...

    Returning mine tomorrow.

    Does not work with the dock

    If you have an Apple Skin (I am sure same with a non-apple skin) this dock will not work. Which is amazing in itself in a really really bad way.

    Who is this possibly for?

    • Written by from San Carlos

    It doesn't work if any case is in place, even the Apple made 5c case. Requires 2 hands to remove it from the stand. If you're one of the 73 people who use their phone without a case, then I suppose this is marginally useful as an desk sync or external audio device connection.

    Will not work with any case

    • Written by from Asunción

    I was pleased to see that Apple has finally provided a dock for the 5 series iPhones, but was very disappointed with this product. It will not work with any case on the phone, even that provided by Apple.

    Wish I could send it back, but I live outside the U.S.

    Come on!! This is not Apple we used to know and love

    Great try... but needs a redesign

    • Written by from Andover

    So Apple hasn't had a doc that they cell for any of their phones since the iPhone 4. So when I saw this I thought it would be perfect for the desk next to the computer because it will be upright and a lot easier to use / read the phone. It is in fact great for that but Apple this time got the design wrong. With the new functionality of the home key on the 5s this dock is no good. Even without a case the doc covers up some of the home button making it a lot more difficult to use and awkward to unlock it with a finger print. Unfortunately I will be returning this Apple product which I can honestly say I don't think I have ever done. Better luck next time Apple, I am going to try out a couple of other companies doc's because it seems that with those the phone sits flush with them and doesn't cover up the home key.

    Don't buy if you have a case!

    • Written by from San Francisco

    Purchased the lovely yellow case for the iPhone 5s and low and behold, it doesn't fit into the dock. Shish! Returning it now. Hope they make a dock that fits that nice leather case. Darn engineers.

    Horrible design but fits 5-5S

    • Written by from columbus

    OK, first I took the plunge and purchased the 5C dock to go with my new 5S, reason being because I knew it was a little larger than the actual 5S dock, obviously wanted to see if the 5S with a slim case would fit. However like all previous reviews for both docs, NO CASE can be on the phone for it to fit in the dock.

    Second the dock is quite cheap, like a piece of thin plastic and very un-apple like, not worth $29.99 so I returned it.

    Although Apple makes great hardware and IOS, their accessory line is not so great. I am not quite sure who is designing these docs or accessories but they need to take a few tips from Twelvesouth.

    Will damage your iPhone

    • Written by from Saddle Brook

    First I was so happy when apple came out with a dock for the iPhone 5/5S. I used the dock only a few times. Not that the home button is partially covered so it's a little difficult to operate the phone while docked but this dock have also scratch my phone while using the dock. The back and the bottom. When I went to the apple store they told me I dropped my iPhone and that's why is damaged. It is impossible to happened form the dock. I never dropped my phone in my life.
