    surprisingly useful

    At first, I was in the Apple Store not looking to buy a lightning dock at all. I always knew it`s uses, and they are always on display along with the iPhones in store. At first I was hesitant in getting rose gold, as I have a space gray 6s. But it really doesn`t matter what color your phone is everything looks good! :) I also got this as a gift for my sister who has a rose gold 7 and struggles with the whole earphone-charging situation (as well as being frustrated for not being able to use her old earbuds); she works from home and has this right beside her MacBook on her desk. So as you can tell, it`s a pretty great device. I highly recommend it if you are either doing schoolwork or work-work via desktop (I keep the cable plugged into my computer). Plus they still make space gray if you`re like me and didn`t upgrade to the 7 yet. ;)

    Works For Me!

    I invested in this dock (Black) and a 0.5 m cable to make my office desk look a bit neater. It holds my 7+ and even with my case (which I'd already pared back the connector opening) it sits and connects easily. Now I don't have to hunt for my phone, which is usually buried under papers on my desk, and the cable isn't so long it snakes around the desk.

    I don't notice it getting hot while charging, as other reviewer mentioned, but I use genuine Apple cable and iPhone charging block.

    I'm very happy with my purchase and recommend it.

    Looks good but beware!

    This lightening dock looks good & matches my iphone 7. I had bought the Otterbox iphone case previously (only sold on Apple) but it does not fit onto the dock!! The lightening dock is too short to connect with the phone in the case on & the Otterbox case is so tight fitting it's a pain to keep taking it off & will probably damage the phone eventually... a risk I am not willing to take, so the dock will have to be returned!!
    Apple, please sort your accessories out & make sure that all the products you sell are compatible with each other or at least state if not compatible, I would have expected less from other stores!!! I am new to Apple products & I'm rather disappointed!

    1 year old dock no longer works

    the dock is no longer recognized by my phone yet a standard cable still works fine. clearly low production/design quality as phone wobbles loosely on the connector.

    Massively over priced for a product that wears so quickly

    I love these when they work, but they break like clockwork!

    Let me begin by saying I love these docks. They're sleek and super convenient. However, every time I buy one of these lightning docks, they break like clockwork in about a year. The worst part of it is that Apple does not stand by the product. If it's more than a year, they refuse to replace the item. So go ahead and buy it if you want it, but know it has a short life span.

    Great Look but Disappointing

    This dock has a great look and a minimalist design but the connector is too small to work with my iPhone when it has a case on it. I have an Otterbox symmetry case which is pretty thing so my guess is that it won't work with most cases.

    I love this dock

    I ordered this dock months ago and wanted to give a review of my experience. This is a very convenient little device as it holds my iPhone in place on my desk at work. I love the fact that I can plug my headphones directly into the dock while it is charging! I typically do not use the dock to charge my phone so I cannot speak about the overheating issues! I will say, the few times I did charge my phone on it, I didn't have that problem! I would definitely recommend this product simply because I love having my phone upright when at home or at work! Especially now that I have my wireless headphones! I can work all over my office with perfect sound and I am not limited to the length of my other headphones. So, in my opinion, it's worth it to buy this little device. Also, it matches my rose gold phone and my wireless headphones perfectly!! So cute!

    Mighty little piece!

    I love this dock. It's small but it holds the phone well and keeps it on place. It matches my phone well. It's easy to charge and all cases fit.

    Waste of money

    I feel so embarrassed to have purchased this. In the dizzy heights of the 6s launch, I thought I'd treat myself to an accessory, so bought the Lightening dock in rose gold to match my new phone colour. I had visions of it looking great on my desk in work, however, the dock is just that. Sadly, it doesn't do anything else. What would have been great is if you could charge the base up, so when you're out and about you could put your phone on the base to charge up throughout the day. It doesn't do this. It's a glorified seat for your phone and thats it. It's still in it's original box in a draw at home. Gutted. Anyone want to buy their phone a glorified seat, let me know ;)

    Excellent

    I purchased the Dock and a 2m cable for my wife. She is extremely pleased, it is small, neat and works perfectly even with the (apple designed) case on. Well done Apple.

    Never going back to wall cube

    I saw this on the apple website and I thought I want one of them. This is my favorite accessory for my iPhone. its strong and can even hold and charge the apple battery case without any problems. The color does match my rose gold phone perfectly. I would definitely recommend this product. Its just like seeing it in the store charging.

    Beautiful like you'd expect from apple

    I love it got in rose gold for my iPhone SE rose gold yet to arrive so using with my iPhone 5s at min, I keep wondering why I didn't get one sooner it's so nice.

    I recommend you get 2m cable to use with it as I think the 1m that comes with the phone might be a bit short.

    I love how it's weighted down so it's very hard to knock over too.

    Overall it's worth iPhone looks really good docked in one of these.

    Sturdy and deliberately precision engineered simplicity

    The lightning dock is well made is excellent even on slippery surfaces such as polished desks.
    It is weighted enough that in conjunction with the pad below it will keep it in place even without the phone docked and is even more stable with the phone docked.

    Initially concerned with leverage issues with the phone being at an angle, the dock has proven to be entirely safe to the health of the lightning port and i assume this is due to the slight angling throughout the design as well as the white nub at the bottom which distributes weight and supports the phone in it's slightly angled state.

    The angled state leaves the phone in a perfect position to view notifications and use Siri while at a work desk, it also allows easy answering of calls but particularly the design is good for FaceTime.
    The dock doesn't interfere with speaker mode and doesn't cause echoing on the other person's end and for noise concerns it's sports a 3.5mm jack at the back allowing connection to headphones. It's also in an optimal position to connect to a speaker.

    I will state that while it is weighted, it is not excessively so, so removing it with a single hand with require you to push your pinky down on the base while lifting with thumb and index. This means single hand removal isn't a case of simply lifting the phone up, this isn't an issue however I will state for my positive review of this product as it does leave the dock able to be manoeuvred while the phone is in it.

    It is colour matched perfectly with the rose gold phone and the phone nub actually serves to create a colour balance between the gold and white, it's quite aesthetically pleasing on any coordinated desk.

    Better than the docks of old such from the original lighting dock to the 30pin connectors, I will happily recommend this product to anyone.

    Wonderful! Love the IPhone Lightning Dock

    Read these reviews before purchasing my dock. Decided to give it a try to see how it would work with my new SE Rose Gold Iphone, because I do not like it lying down in different places while charging. I am so happy I did! I purchased it in the rose gold color and it matches my phone perfectly, like other reviewers stated. I think because my phone is smaller in size, it sits comfortably on the dock. I have had no problems when removing my phone from the dock, it charges my phone with no issues whatsoever, and my phone does not get hot @ all while charging. My phone has an Apple case which helps it fit comfortably on the dock. Might purchase another one for my son's phone (he has an Iphone 6 plus so will see how it works with his). Very satisfied with my purchase so far.

    Buy cheap copies or immitations at your peril!!!

    Can't imagine why anybody wouldnt rate this highly. Yes, its expensive, but its beautifully crafted, very small but perfectly formed. It operates with my 360 degree hard case with no problems whatsoever. Its a heavy little base so there is no phone wobble and you really feel the phone is locked in tight. The matching base to phone is aesthetically pleasing but not why i bought it. It is apple, it works as apple always does and opening an apple product (any apple product) is almost as good as using it, all that perfectly cut protective plastic and the way it just unwraps is a joy of perfect product packaging. All the thrill of an apple purchase for just £39. Who can argue with that? Am i seduced by the commercial marketing powerhouse animal that is "Apple" and left not being able to think for myself?....... YES.

    Should have its own plug & cable with Lighting Dock

    I have just purchased this Lighting Dock and when I consider the price for this item, I do think it should include its own plug with at least a 2 meter cable instead of having to use the one that came with my iPhone, this also limits what socket you can use with the Lighting Dock because the cable that comes with your iPhone is so short anyway.

    If the Lighting Dock had its own plug & cable this would also allow you to more easily take the iPhone charger with you when you leave home, therefore the Lighting Dock with the extra cable & plug would stay where you wanted it without continuing having to remove the plugs etc.

    Apart from this as always this Apple product is a lovely item and is perfect for the iPhone to sit on especially with the matching colours that are available to match your iPhone.

    Thank you.

    Can be difficult to use

    I loved the idea of my lighting dock and I was super excited when I first got it! However, a problem I have encountered is that I find it difficult to remove my phone from the dock. My lightning dock is very stubborn, I have to be very careful to put my hands in the perfect place in order to remove my phone from it. I made this purchase thinking it would make my charging experience easier but it has only made it more of a hassle.

    My iPhone 6 Plus becomes extremely hot when charging on the dock

    My iPhone becomes very hot when charging with this dock. If I connect it with anything else its fine and when I connect it with the wire that the dock connects to, its stone cold when charging, the dock makes it heat up very fast.
