Apple to launch new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c docking stations
Apple's online Store website has been going through quite a few changes these last 24 hours, thanks to the announcements of the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c. And when we say changes, we really mean additions, because as you've probably guessed, apart from the two new devices, Apple has, and continues to, make a host of accessories available for its two new contenders.
Starting right now, you can add two new docking stations to the above list, for Cupertino has just made available two docks for the 5s/5c, respectively. In terms of functionality, nothing has really changed – you get the same minimalistic design with a line-out port, allowing you to plug a set of speakers to your phone while docked and charging, if you like. That being said, considering the differences in dimensions, while the 5s dock will be compatible with the iPhone 5, it probably won't be able to fit the larger iPhone 5c. Whether the story works in reverse remains unknown right now, but it appears likely that you'll be able to mix-and match the dock for the iPhone 5c with the slimmer iPhone 5/5s.
Pricing for both docking stations is pegged at $29 a pop, with availability set for September 20.
