iPhone 6 Plus dock Stories June 27, 2015

Update (6/29 8:00am): Black version deal has expired, but silver is still $29.99 via a 3rd party seller (Lopear).

Instead of buying Apple’s new Lightning dock that’s basically just a tiny plastic brick, the smart move would be to go with Twelve South’s HiRise dock that is better looking and less expensive expand full story

iPhone 6 Plus dock Stories June 1, 2015

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

expiredThe Twelve South Lightning dock your iPhone 6/Plus deserves is on sale for $28 Prime shipped (Reg. $35)

My favorite iPhone 6 dock has just gotten its first price drop of 2015. The Twelve South HiRise dock in silver is now available for $28.37 Prime shipped. That’s just about a 20% dip and within $1 of the best price we’ve ever seen. It doesn’t go on sale often so I would lock this deal in now if you’ve been wanting a nice dock for your iPhone. Don’t worry if your iPhone is in a case, the HiRise is adjustable.

Make sure to pick up an extra Apple Lightning cable for it as third party options aren’t compatible.

If price is no concern, Twelve South also offers the newer HiRise Deluxe dock.

expiredTwelve South HiRise Deluxe iPhone and iPad dock w/ MFi Lightning cable: $50 shipped (Reg. $60)

Until today at 3pm EST, Twelve South is offering a $10 discount on its HiRise Deluxe iPhone/iPad dock when you enter coupon code noonpacific at checkout. It retails for $59.99, so your total after the discount will be $49.99 shipped. This is the first discount of any kind we’ve seen on this dock since it was released late last year. What’s more, Twelve South products in general are rarely discounted. I want to reiterate that this deal ends today at 3PM EST (noon pacific), you don’t have that much time to get it.

The HiRise Deluxe accommodates cases, can be adjusted with one hand, and most importantly, it’s available in gold! You’ll also receive a MFi Lightning cable so that’ll save you another $10-$20. It’s rated 4.3 out of 5 stars from 64 Amazon reviewers.

If you want to get a similar look but can’t stomach $50 for an iPhone dock, I recommend going with the original HiRise dock for $35. It was our pick for the best iPhone 6/Plus dock and is what my iPhone sits in every day.

It’s been just about two months since iPhone 6/Plus were released in the US and there’s still no word from Apple regarding an official dock. And that’s fine, because the best iPhone 6/Plus dock has been available the entire time.

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.

expiredTwelve South HiRise stand for iPhone/iPad mini $28 Prime shipped (Reg. $35), works w/ iPhone 6/Plus

Amazon is offering the Twelve South HiRise metal stand for iPhone/iPad mini for $27.99 with free 2-day shipping for Prime members (free trial).  This is the lowest price that we have ever seen for this stand and is even more noteworthy since Twelve South rarely discounts their products.

9to5Mac’s thoughts on the HiRise:

The stand is sturdy and my iPhone 5 and iPad mini both can sit in the HiRise securely. I am not worried about my devices falling off of the stand. The aluminum materials that the stand is made from are very robust and of similar color and texture to the aluminum that Apple uses for the base of the iMac and LED/Thunderbolt Display stands.

Keep in mind that it doesn’t include a Lightning cable and only supports the official Apple version. Check out our roundup of other docks that will also work with iPhone 6/Plus.

iPhone 6 Plus dock Stories October 2, 2014

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
