    slow

    • Written by Simon J from Torquay

    The dock is quite slow to charge an iPhone 7 plus. Double the time of a regular charge..
    I'm underwhelmed.

    Not for use with a protective case

    • Written by Michael W from Wheeling

    I got this case for my wife's new iPhone 7, because she needs to be able to run wired audio from her phone while connected to power. This was the one viable solution that was already on the market at the release of the iPhone 7. Despite the description that it's "fully case compatible," the added space of the moderately protective Otterbox Symmetry was too much for it. Some different adapters to accommodate differently sized cases would be a welcomed fix to this product. Meanwhile, how about a simple Y-adapter to allow both functions at once, please.

    Beautifully designed, not suited for one hand operation

    • Written by Shashwat P from Morgan Hill

    I bought this so that I can have my iPhone 6s connected to my mac while also being able to test my apps during development. While the dock itself is beautifully designed and has enough heft to keep the iPhone in place without toppling over, trying to do anything with it while it is docked is a bit of a disappointment.

    Like many other reviewers have mentioned, the iPhone keeps moving side to side if you try to use it when docked. I might have to stick some foam spacers on either side of the dock connector just to prevent it from moving around. But if your needs are only to charge it when in the dock, it probably will work fine as designed.

    Nice dock BUT doesn't work for all cases

    • Written by David B from Mount Pleasant

    Just wanted to post that this dock works with slimmer cases, however, two cases that I have tried that are a tad too big include the Otterbox Symmetry and the Spigen Tough Armor. I switch cases often so it won't bother me too much but I wish it was made to work with slightly thicker cases.

    Build quality typically good but design is flawed

    • Written by Alex B from Dunfermline

    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.
