I wouldn't say the dock is useless, but over the past six years I've probably used it for less than 1% of the applications that I launch.

I can testify that planned obsolescence of cameras is already happening. I have a working digital camera from about 1998/1999 era.
Not supporting a device after 12-13 years isn't "planned obsolescence" it's regular obsolescence.
