A source from Bose has confirmed that the newest SoundDock, the SoundDock III, will only support the iPhone 5 and will launch within a week or so from today, November 28th, 2012.  I had previously discussed alternative solutions to make the iPhone 5 play on the Bose SoundDock II.

The new Sounddock III (3) will charge and play music from the iPhone 5 through its speakers, as many people have been anxious for.  We weren’t sure if it was going to be called the SoundLink III / SoundDock III or if it would support Bluetooth, but we now know that it is going to be called the Bose SoundDock III and will not support Bluetooth Playback.

If you were waiting for the newest generation SoundDock to use on your iPhone 4 or 4S, unfortunately, the newest SoundDock III will only support the iPhone 5.

What if I have an iPhone 4 or iPhone 4s, will that work on the new SoundDock III?

For families that own an iPhone 5 and an iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S, I would recommend purchasing the Bose® SoundLink® Bluetooth Mobile Speaker II – Nylon, as it supports Bluetooth playback, which can be used on all Apple Devices, Samsung Galaxy S3, and all phones that support Bluetooth Speakers. It will also work to play music from your Computer, provided it has Bluetooth capabilities.  It is also a portable Bose speaker that features a battery that will last for up to 8 hours of playback.  It can be used outside at BBQ’s and you can play music to it from your phone in your pocket.
