Disappointing news: Apple won't be releasing an official dock for the iPhone 5. But don't give up hope, a team of designers with an amusing moniker in the spirit of our site, Obsessively Clean Desk, is looking to fill in the niche with the modern minimalist OCDock...
Currently a Kickstarter project, the OCDock will come in two versions, regular and mini, and designed with iMac and Apple Displays in mind. Both versions look straight out of Cupertino's design lab with supposedly the world's thinnest iPhone cable, engineered to keep clutter at bay and run the connection underneath the display's foot/base.
