Update (12/17 2:45pm): Amazon Lightning Deal! Belkin Charge and Sync Dock with Lightning Cable for $13.65 Prime shipped (Reg. $25).

(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.

There are already several iPhone 6 and 6 Plus dock solutions. Here are our favorite docks, stands, mounts, and more:

Amazon is offering the Sony Lightning iPhone/iPad clock radio speaker dock (Model ICFCS15IPN) for $68 with free shipping. That’s $32 under retail and the best price we’ve seen by nearly $10.

You may feel like alarm clocks are no longer practical thanks to the proliferation of smartphones, but as Seth found out while reviewing a Philips dock we shouldn’t be so quick to dismiss these bedside companions. The Sony Lightning dock is a convenient way to keep your iPhone/iPod/iPad charged overnight while waking up to your choice of radio, iPod, or buzzer. You can even control it from across the room with the included miniature remote. Compatible with all current generation Lightning-equipped Apple devices. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars.

If you’re OK without the alarm clock capabilities you can step-up into the the Sony RDPX200IPN Lightning dock with Bluetooth for $98. This model has received a 4.2/5 star rating on Amazon. expand full story

expiredBelkin Charge and Sync Lightning dock w/ built-in USB cable $17.50 (Reg. $35)

Amazon has the Belkin Charge and Sync Lightning dock for $17.50 with free shipping for Prime members (free trial!) and any order of $35 or more. That’s a savings of 50% off retail and easily the best price we’ve ever seen. Today’s deal yields a dock with a built-in 4′ Lightning cable for less than the price of a single cable from Apple.

Most Lightning docks on the market are cheaply made and do not have the polished fit n’ finish worthy of a new iPhone or iPod. The Belkin Lightning dock is different. It has an aluminum finish and built-in 4′ USB cable to charge and sync your Apple device. Compatible with iPhone 5, iPod Touch 5th generation and iPod Nano 7th generation. Also available to preorder in colors (perfect for 5c owners), however those models are not on sale.

Most Lightning docks on the market are cheaply made and do not have the polished fit n’ finish worthy of a new iPhone or iPod. The Belkin Lightning dock is different. It has an aluminum finish and built-in 4′ USB cable to charge & sync your Apple device. You are getting a sturdy dock and  MFi-certified Lightning cable for just $5 more than an official Apple Lightning cable, a true deal. it is also $5 cheaper than the newly announced Apple dock that does not include a lightning Lightning cable and in my opinion is not as good looking as this one. Compatible with iPhone 5, iPod Touch 5th generation and iPod Nano 7th generation and presumably the new iPhone 5s / 5c.

Over 410 Amazon reviewers rate this Lightning dock a solid 4 out of 5 stars and Apple Store purchasers give it 3.5 stars.
