Fans of Apple's own generational iPhone docks may be disappointed to learn that no such accessory will be manufactured for the iPhone 5.

In an email obtained by 9 to 5 Mac, Schiller answers a devoted dock-user's question thusly:

Hi

Thanks!

We do not plan on making a dock for the iPhone 5. Most people who use docks use them with speaker or clock systems.

"Sent from my iPhone 5." Pshh, what a show off.
