Charge your iPhone 6 in style with Apple’s new Lightning Dock

Here’s one for the “better late than never” category: Almost three years after releasing the Lightning connector for the iPhone 5, Apple has unveiled its brand new official Lightning connector dock for use with the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, and fifth-generation iPod touch.

Not only can it be used to keep your handset fully-juiced, but you can also connect it powered speakers or a stereo using a separate 3.5-mm cable to enjoy music and podcasts at your leisure.

Accommodating both the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch handsets, the dock is wonderfully sleek and minimalist — although you can’t help but worry that it’s going to be a bit fragile.

We’ll reserve a final judgment until we’ve had a chance to use it, of course.

Pick it up on the Online Apple Store for a bargain-ous $39.
