Best read this before buying one.

Since it took so long for the iPhone 5 cradle to come out, I'd say never. ;-)

Get a life and treat your equipment with the care it deserves. And quit whining when it doesn't take your abuse and Apple doesn't make you feel special! Give me a break

i waited forever for the 5 cradle
since i have kids and the indestructible case
the cradle does not work
you have to take the phone out of the case
too time consuming
waste of money
unless you are one of the guys who does not use a case
good luck

#1 You don't buy a $700+ phone, put it into your back pocket of tight jeans, then proceed to crush it with 100+ pounds of force for long periods - multiple times

#2 All phones bend with same conditions: http://www.cultofmac.com/297404/get-...t-smartphones/

#3 Apple has only 9 formal complaints about the phone bending out of the millions sold.

People just want to find a reason to knock it.
