Audio accessory manufacturer JBL has released a pair of docks with Lightning connectors for the iPhone 5, iPad mini, iPad (fourth generation), iPod touch (fifth generation) and iPod nano (seventh generation).
To start with, the OnBeat Micro (US$99.95) is a compact design that works perfectly with the iPhone 5 as a charger and speaker. Running off of both AC power and battery power, you're assured that you'll be awakened if you're using that iPhone 5 as an alarm clock.
The OnBeat Venue Lightning ($199.95, see image below) pumps out 30 watts of amplified sound from any Lightning-equipped Apple device. It's also equipped with Bluetooth for remote beaming of music to the speakers.
Both docks are currently available for pre-order and are listed as shipping "when available."
