Official iPhone Lightning port dock hits the Apple Store

It’s been three years since Apple unveiled the iPhone 5, and with it the reversible Lightning port. Now, the company is finally rolling out an official dock for the super-slim connector. You can pick one up now from the Apple Store for what seems like a pretty pricy $39.

The design is classic Apple. A simple white rectangle with rounded corners. The connector itself is supported with some reinforcement, which should keep it from buckling under the weight of even an iPhone 6 Plus. However, Apple makes it clear that its new accessory isn’t meant for iPads. The dock also sports a Lighting port in back for plugging in, along with a standard audio jack.

Before you hit that buy button, it’s probably worth taking a look at what else is out there. A quick search of Amazon reveals cheaper and more versatile options. Belkin is selling a pretty sleek Lightning dock for just $16.59. Meanwhile, JBL has a dock-speaker hybrid for just $28.88.

If you don’t mind paying extra for Apple design hit the source link and head over to the company’s online store.
