    Good idea, but not always practical.

    I really like how the lightning dock looks. I also was happy at first with the idea of having one. But I can honestly say that I've used the dock a total of 3 times! Unless you walk around without a phone case on your $650 plus phone, then when it comes time dock your phone for charging it's simply not practical. Nor was the dock made to be used on an iPhone with a case at all! Now that's a 'smh'.

    Not necessary, but not bad either?

    It's a quality product, no doubt... but is it necessary? I'm not sure. It's tiny, and doesn't include a charging cable - you'd think for $50 they'd include one... it's just a small metal puck with a lightening connection sticking out... It's a nice product, and seems very durable... but I think it's over priced.

    Works great but not universal

    Great to hookup your iPhone and play music via home stereo. Note you may need to buy a separate cable if your stereo receiver doesn't have USB inputs. One drawback I wasn't aware of is Apple doesn't allow the dock to be used with our iPod Nano's which we both use for fitness activities. It's a pain to get your iPhone from the dock every time you want to check messages, social media, etc.

    IPhone Dock

    I really like the iPhone docking station. It works very well with my iPhone 6S+. I use it every night on my night stand so that I can see the time using the app that has sound and a clock. It charges through the night and is ready to use every morning. It will be great for travel when there is often no place to prop up the phone at night.

    This dock for an iPhone works as expected. If you happen to have a case on your iPhone it should still work, too. There might be a few exceptions, like an Otterbox case. The only negative I might add is that sometimes when trying to sit the iPhone in the dock, one tends to miss the connection into the dock. And thus using two hands to place it in the dock is needed.

    I wanted to like this really bad, but after charging my phone on this overnight, it made my battery kind of weird. My usage and standby showed the same time when I've only use the phone for a few mins. So my phone thinks it's been used for 6 hours even though it's only been on standby for 6 hours as well. The color is beautiful though, but sadly I had to return it.

    apple has had the accessory market covered since the inception of any of their products...i am thoroughly pleased with the look and functionality of the lightning dock...i can use my phone with no problem while still in the dock as it is quite stable..allows for me to view any activity due to the fact that my phone is propped up at a good angle.

    For the price it should come with a cable and wall adapter. Also depending what type of case you have on the your iphone you may have trouble using this dock. Last, I have one on my bedside table, takes me a full 30- 60 secs to actually connect the phone when the lights are off. Other than that, dock works great.

    works as expected...but didn't come with a cord

    For $50 it would be nice if it came with a charging cord. I guess the only added value is that it holds your phone upright while charging and let's you use the normal headphone jack for iphone 7's. I wouldn't go out of my way to recommend this, but if you're looking for this specifically, it does the job very well.

    I bought this stand to go with my iPhone 6s smart battery case and have to say was very pleased with how I don't have to take the phone out of the case. This won't be the same for every iPhone case out their but even with out a case the stand does a lot better job then just plugging in the phone to the lighting cable.

    I really do like this dock. It's nice to have my phone propped up on my desk while I work, however, even though I got mine with an amazing discount, I don't think I would purchase this otherwise. It's a great product but doesn't come with a lightning cable and I think it's a bit over-priced as is.

    I use this product in my office. It's much better than having a cord straddled across my desk. Since the lightning cord plugs into the base I'm able to hide the wire. This dock is convenient and fits the décor on my desk. I'm buying a second one for my home, and gifting a few as well.

    This item does exactly what it's meant to do. It holds the iPhone upright so you can see it as it's charging. The lightening cord isn't included. It is a little expensive but not out of the ordinary for Apple products. It looks good with all of the other Apple devices that you may own.

    I usually just plug in my iPhone at night on my nightstand with the cable, so I use this at work to keep my phone docked. It's very secure and sleek looking. Great to keep the phone upright to look at until I need to pull it off to use it - works great for speaker phone, too.

    Was having problems with my iPhone charger and always had to buy new ones because Apple chargers wear out so easily. This is great because I can just set my phone to charge without having to adjust the charging cord to get my phone to charge. Works great so far.

    Love the simple design of the product as well as how it matches all the other Apple products owned. What really sold me was a demonstration by the Apple rep showing just how much bending and stress the Lightning connector can take.

    It's pretty but pretty expensive. No extra cable or power adapter; just a dock in the box. It's sturdy enough although your iPhone might rock left and right a bit. It also has a headphone jack (not amplified line out).

    Best charger from apple, since it lasts much longer than their wire chargers/lightning charger. Also, love that it stands the phone up, which is very helpful for the nightstand.

    Apple Lighting Dock is an attractive addition on any surface, a desk, nightstand. Your iPhone sits upright and the base doesn't tip over. Rubberized base also prevents base from moving. Unit is easily move to new location if necessary.

    It is nice, small and easy to pack away for a trip, but it also does not come with a charging cord which it should considering the price. But other than this it does what it is supposed to do, and charge the iPhone.
