    Poor Functionality

    Nice looking product but its temperamental and sometimes charges if it feels like. Its not built to last and won't last you very long.
    I am on my second and now I'm out of my 12 month warranty its failed again and Apple don't want to know.

    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. Really solid build quality with high quality Apple craftsmanship as expected. Really great product. Highly recommend.

    Good quality product

    At least in my opinion. Anyway, I purchased this lightning dock about two weeks after I got my phone (not like that is really important). The dock has a nice aluminium finish which corresponds to the five main colours which a modern iPhone is available in; Black, Silver, Gold, Space Grey and Rose Gold. First of all, I am marking it down one star as it is very small and you do not get an extra lightning cable in the box, just the dock itself. I got it back when it was £39.00 (even that is overpriced) but now it is £49.00. So, what does this dock do? It… charges your iPhone. And syncs it with iTunes. Pretty much just a charging and syncing stand. The lightning connector is raised on a bumper, which some people complain about because it makes the phone a bit unstable, but this personally does not affect me as I do not use my phone while it is charging, though I see why it is a problem for some people. Some people also find it hard to line the phone up with the connector due to the design, and I agree with this. At the back is a lightning connector to connect the lightning cable, as well as a headphone jack so this is a good way to listen to music for iPhone 7 users because… yeah. The bottom features a white rubber foot (black on the Black lightning dock) with the Apple logo engraved, as well as "Designed by Apple in California" and stuff printed on it. I can think of another disadvantage; in my local Apple Store they use these docks to display their new phones, and on most of them the aluminium finish has been scratched and you can see underneath the paint. I think that this is due to the amount of people using these and being rough with them. I do not think that this issue will affect many people, though. This dock is definitely quite expensive, but in my opinion it is a good quality product and I would probably recommend it. It does look nice when you match your iPhone to its corresponding dock, and you can also charge your iPod and even your iPad on this dock, though I wouldn't recommend the latter due to the size difference and the amount of weight and pressure. This is a nice product and goes great with your iPhone, so I guess I will recommend.

    Sleepless nights with one of these by your bedside!

    I bought one of these to match my Rose iPhone 6s. It is a disaster. I set it up on my night table. It worked for two days then it started to misbehave. It switched the phone on with a bright light and alert - several times a minute! I darkened the screen and then ten seconds later, it comes on again with a loud alert. I can't switch off the sound as my kids live abroad and sometimes call at unearthly hours. I had to unhook it. I sent it back to Apple who replaced it with another. Fine, I thought, till I connected it and it did the very same thing. I cannot get to first base with Apple Support and have decided to bin it and forget the refund I asked for. I certainly do not recommend it.

    Don't buy to use with iphone6s smart case

    I bought this yesterday from a Apple Store premium seller. Tried using it with my iPhone 6s with apple smart battery case and it will not charge the case and phone together so you must separate and change them separately if you wish to use this dock. As it does work when they are separated I cannot get my money back.

    Major disappointment

    Bought this with my new iPhone6s thinking it a neat addition to my office desk set up. Very disappointed to report that after 6 days the lightening connector on the dock simply allows the phone to wobble and no longer charges.
    I checked that the lightening cable works independently so this is definitely a design flaw in the dock.
    Many have reported on the US site that they share this disappointment.
    For the first time ever I shall be returning a product to Apple for a refund and that is a real shame.

    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 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.

    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 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.
