Sure, it just holds the phone upright but now I can use my iPhone as a bedside clock and that's really the only reason I purchased it. If you're looking for something more sexy and perhaps more useful then look at the non-Apple offerings. Either way, the goal may end up being the same and that is to simply hold the phone upright.

      Solid Apple Product, but How Safe is it?

      This is a typical piece of Apple engineering - simplistic design, well built and sturdy (it's predominantly metal), with an Apple premium price to match. I bou This is a typical piece of Apple engineering - simplistic design, well built and sturdy (it's predominantly metal), with an Apple premium price to match. I bought it for my iPhone 6, which fits it just fine in its Apple case, but if you've got a 3rd party case you might want to check that there's enough clearance around the lightning connector's port to allow it to sit on the dock. The connector is the only point of contact with the phone which should make it compatible with most cases, but it's also the thing which causes me to question how good a design this will prove to be in the long term as any accidental knocking of the phone whilst on the dock is going to place all the strain on the dock connector, a reason why I've previous rejected 3rd party docks. However, in this case the connector is metal which should virtually eliminate the risk of it snapping off inside the phone, but I do still wonder if any lateral movement of the docked phone is going to eventually damage the port inside the phone. Time will tell! It's also worth noting that you don't get a lightning cable or plug with this. That's made clear in the item description, but it's still a bit of a disappointment at this price.

      Build quality typically good but design is flawed

      As ever with Apple, a lot of attention is paid to the build quality. It looks and feels premium in the new metal design. I went for the space grey colour to m As ever with Apple, a lot of attention is paid to the build quality. It looks and feels premium in the new metal design. I went for the space grey colour to match my iPhone. There is one major issue with the design, though. The only point of contact with the phone is the lightning port itself. The phone doesn't touch the dock base. It's therefore really unstable, and easily rocks left/right when mounted. The slightest sideways knock and the connection is broken and the dock stops charging the phone. Additionally, when I first plugged my iPhone 6 into the dock, a message appeared on the phone suggesting the accessory was not supported. The phone stopped charging thereafter until I rebooted it.

      Dock works well and looks nice, but it does NOT support Quick Charge

      I ordered this dock, along with the 29w charger and USB-C to Lightning cable in order to take advantage of the iPhone 8/8 Plus quick charge feature. The 29w I ordered this dock, along with the 29w charger and USB-C to Lightning cable in order to take advantage of the iPhone 8/8 Plus quick charge feature. The 29w charger and USB-C/Lightning cable did indeed charge the iPhone 8/8 Plus faster than the 5W, and in fact charged it much faster than the 12W charger too. BUT, as soon as I added the dock, things changed. The dock supports 5V/2.5A -- so, a maximum output of 12.5 watts. This is substantially less than the 18 watts the iPhone can draw from the 29w charger when it's doing a quick charge. But, I wanted to make sure I wasn't wrong -- I pulled out my kill a watt and plugged the 29w adapter in and measured the wattage used. Without the dock, it used 18 watts or so to charge. Add the dock inline? Wattage drops to around 8 watts. So, the dock is great, and looks very nice. If you don't care about quick charge, go ahead and buy it. Or, if you're using any phone other than the 8/8 Plus/X, it really won't matter at all since the other phones will not draw anything more than the dock can provide. However, if you ARE looking for a quick charge solution, the only option I've found so far is the Apple 29w charger/USB-C/Lightning cable and the Twelve South Hirise 2 Deluxe dock. The dock allows you to use the USB-C lightning cable, and preserves the quick charge ability. Hopefully Apple updates these docks to allow for quick charge, but, until they do, just know that it will NOT work.

      Good Idea, just not completely thought out

      The idea of the dock is great, but it doesn't work with many cases that apple sells in-store. I have to always take my phone out of the case to use the dock. I The idea of the dock is great, but it doesn't work with many cases that apple sells in-store. I have to always take my phone out of the case to use the dock. I like that it is easier to see notifications. The audio dock is great if you hook it up to your computer or an amplified speaker so you can listen to music while working. Not designed to watch videos in the correct format.

      Brilliant

      Really love this dock - it sits perfectly with my iPhone on top on my desk. It's connected to my Mac most of the time and I've not ever had a problem with it.
