By now, you probably know that there aren’t many docks for the iPhone 5/5s and iPad 4. The lightning connector has changed the rules of the game and manufacturers are taking their time to produce a line of docks that would fit the lightning devices.
A lot of people use alarm clock docks. They’re great because they solve two things easily: they’re a bed-side clock that can wake you up and they charge your iPhone. Combining both of these saves space and adds better functionality.
But if you’ve been looking for alarm clock docks for iPhone 5 or iPhone 5s, you’ve seen that there aren’t many. Of course, not to lose hope because some of them are on the way.
Here are the best iPhone 5/5s alarm clock docking stations that’s doing the rounds right now.
1. Philips DS1155/37The Philips DS1155/37 is actually a speaker dock for the iPhone 5/5s (read our post on iPhone 5/5s speaker docks).

4. i-Blason iPhone Alarm Clock Docki-Blason is not as popular as the others but it appears to be a pretty good iPhone 5/5s compatible alarm clock dock.
