Even with Apple’s official Lightning dock for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus finally being released, there’s still a huge opportunity for third party accessory makers. After all, not everyone is looking for an ultra minimalist $39 plastic dock.
ElevationLab’s updated ElevationDock 3 takes several cues from its predecessor, going in a completely different direction than Apple: it’s hefty, crafted from aluminum and is available in several colors. expand full story

Update (3/14 9:15am): @wins the Grovemade Dock. Thanks everyone for reading and entering this week’s giveaway.
When it comes to Apple accessories, there are typically two options: materials that are designed to mirror the product and those are meant to complement that product in a different way. The former is typically anodized aluminum, plastic or a metal of some kind, while the latter has been trending towards natural materials like wood or fabrics. Personally, I love seeing natural materials complement modern electronics. There are so many companies manufacturing here in the United States that are taking advantage of the natural resources and skills here.
Head below for full details, our review and to learn how you can win a Grovemade iPhone 6 dock for yourself.

Today, Twelve South is introducing an updated version called the HiRise Deluxe. Its basic design and function remains the same, but Twelve South has updated two aspects that address the only (very minor) qualms we had with the original HiRise.
Now, the Deluxe model doesn’t require any tools for making size adjustments to accommodate nearly any case. Also, instead of having to provide your own charging cable, Twelve South is now including one Lightning and one Micro-USB cable. In addition to black and silver, the Deluxe HiRise will also be available in a gold finish.
The Twelve South HiRise Deluxe is available now for $59.99. The $25 up-charge over the original HiRise is reasonable since it includes a Lightning ($11-19 value) and Micro-USB ($2-3 value) in addition to other design upgrades.
Looking for something a little different? Our iPhone 6/Plus dock roundup has several different options from a range of major brands.

Apple left a gaping hole in the accessory world when it decided not to release an updated dock for the new, larger iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Shortly after their release, third party manufacturers have brought forth some beautiful and functional docks, but most are made of either aluminum or hard plastics.
A new company on the iPhone accessory scene, Quell & Company, which was co-founded by former Nike designer Jeremy Saxton, has created an iPhone Spool Dock that won’t feel out of place amongst modern home decor… expand full story
