Apple Updates Universal Dock For iPhone, iPod

This week Apple has updated its Universal Dock accessory package which provides users with a charging and syncing solution for iPhone and iPod. The dock also provides a method for users to attach their iPhone or iPod to a stereo, TV, or receiver.

In terms of the update, the actual dock itself is unchanged but the package contents have been modified to include the company’s new aluminum remote instead of the previous white remote.

The new universal dock package apparently still does not include a USB power adapter or a USB to Dock connector cable, which is odd considering that Apple has raised the price of the package from $55 to $65 and that there is a photo of the USB cable on the box.

Also, with the launch of several new iDevices, the package contains new dock adapters for iPhone 4/3GS/3G, second-, third-, and fourth-generation iPod touch, and the fifth-generation iPod nano. Adapters for other iPod and iPhone models not included in the package can be purchased separately as the dock itself is compatible with every Apple iPhone and iPod.
