Apple’s Lightning cable has been a thorn in side of Apple fans for a while now. Shortly after its debut alongside iPhone 5 in 2012, it became abundantly clear that Apple’s claims of ‘improved durability’ where specious at best. Apple-branded Lighting cables have failed time and time again.

Now it’s three years later and Apple has done nothing to address the durability of its Lightning cables. We’ve put together a roundup of ultra-tough Lightning cables that should last longer than your new iPhone 6/6 Plus…

(Update 5/19 10:30am): The time has come. Apple has randomly announced a new Lightning dock for iPhone 6/Plus. However, you should still take a look at the numerous third party options (below) that have been on the market for years. Many of these options offer more styling and better value compared to Apple’s dock.

If you were one of over 4 million people who preordered an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus this weekend, then you may have noticed that one of Apple’s most popular accessories for previous gen iPhones is curiously absent from its online store. As of right now, Apple seems to be sitting on the sideline and will not be releasing a dock designed for its newest smartphones.

Docks position your iPhone in a way that makes it easier to keep tabs on incoming notifications, all while helping create a clean workspace by wrangling messy cables.

Logitech FabricSkin folio keyboard case for iPad Air $120 shipped (Reg. $150)

Amazon is offering the Logitech FabricSkin folio keyboard case for iPad Air for $119.99 with free shipping. That’s a $30 price drop and the first ever discount on this recently released iPad Air accessory. It features a reachable battery w/ up to 3 months of use on a full charge, iOS specific shortcut keys, and ample protection from everyday bumps/drops and even water hazards.

If you haven’t picked up an iPad Air yet be sure to take advantage of this limited-time $50 discount from Staples. FabricSkin deal is also available from Best Buy and includes a couple more colors.

9to5Mac reviewed several iPad Air keyboard cases and found the Logitech FabricSkin to be the winner:

Using the accessory as a case for the Air while not in keyboard mode is comfortable and convenient. Relatively, the cover (which protects the front and back of the iPad Air) is not much bulkier than a non-keybaord case built for the same purpose. However, the electronics in the accessory add some weight. The volume rocker, rear camera, speakers, and power button are all accessible while the cover is closed.

Belkin Thunderstorm iPad home theater speaker case 30-pin $130, Lightning $150 (Reg. $200)

Time to turn you iPad into an entertainment powerhouse. Amazon is offering up to 48% off the Belkin Thunderstorm home theater speaker and case. The 30-pin version (iPad 2/3) is now $129.99, and the Thunderbolt model (iPad 4) is $149.99. The 48% discount figure is derived from a $250 retail price on the 30pin version, which is oddly more than the Thunderbolt model. Anyways, both models are significantly discounted and that’s all that matters. It features a full-range speaker system, protective casing, and various angles for optimal entertainment consumption. Rated 4.5 stars.

9to5Mac found it to be perfect for iPad users who are constantly gaming or watching videos:

I’ve tried many Bluetooth speakers from Logitech, Jawbone, NYNE, JBL and more, and I can honestly say none quite compare to Thunderstorm when it comes to a rich, immersive sound experience for watching video on an iPad. Its a unique experience with Thunderstorm, fine tuned specifically for the movie watching experience, and it’s definitely worth your attention if much of your time with an iPad is spent watching video.
