Apple Introduces New iPhone 6 Compatible Lightning Dock at $49 [u]

Share:

It took a while, but Apple has finally released an official iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus dock that supports other devices with Apple’s Lightning port (via TechCrunch).

As you can see on the product page, the new dock features a freestanding Lightning connector, unlike other docks – Belkin for example – where you need to place the device in a slot.

The dock features a very simple and basic design. It includes an audio line-out port so you can connect it to powered speakers, and supports headphones including a remote control.

The new dock’s pricing obviously varies by country: What costs $39 in the US, in Canada you need to shell out $49 (CAD).

Apple’s pricing compares to Belkin’s Charge and Sync dock, which currently retails for $39.95, which is compatible only with the iPhone 5, 5s, iPod nano 7th-generation, and iPod Touch 5th-generation.

Update: From Apple’s Support page on these new docks–they will fit with your Apple case on:

If your iPhone or iPod touch has an Apple case, you can leave it on while using the iPhone Lightning Dock.

    The Belkin ChargeSync Dock is compatible with the iPhone 6, as noted on the Belkin site. I’m using it, works fine.

    If your iPhone or iPod touch has an Apple case, you can leave it on while using the iPhone Lightning Dock.
