    Not worth the money.

    All of my electronics are apple products. I have been looking for a nice clock radio and thought I Home was the way to go. My first clock radio was the I Home IPLWBT5BC. Very difficult to dock an I phone. Looked on line for an alternate. The I Home IBN35OGC looked nice with it's wireless charging but didn't have many good reviews. I returned my 1st purchase and exchanged for the I Home iBTW38B, which had no reviews, I guess I'm the first. I liked the wire less phone charging feature but it doesn't work on any of our 4 different I phones. Very difficult to set up. I would not recomend this product. It will be going back.

      We apologize for your experience and thank you for choosing iHome. The wireless Qi charging is compatible with some iPhones. Apple did not manufacture the phones with Qi charging until the iPhone X, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone 8. Previous models need a Qi charging case.

    I really like the clock, it has 2 different alarm settings that keeps me from having to change the time on the alarm and it also has a place to charge your phone, problem is....I have a iPhone 7 and it only charges the iPhone 8 and newer phones,before I purchased the clock I asked the salesperson and he said that It will still charge my phone just not as fast as a newer phone,well that's not true at ally kept the clock because I figured that I will be upgrading eventually and I really like the clock.

      Apple did not manufacture Qi Charging until the iPhone 8 was released. Older iPhone models need a Qi Charging case to charge on this iHome unit. Thank you for the review. We appreciate your input. iHome

    I bought this unit to replace an iHome unit that no longer worked. I don't like the display on this one as much as the older one. It is difficult to read and the dots that make up the time display look cheap. I wish it displayed the date like the other one. The charging by just laying your phone on top is nice as long as it doesn't get knocked off center during the charging process by your cat and doesn't actually charge. I think I like the charging cord better.

    I upgraded from an older model to this one and definitely notice the difference. Although the numbers can be hard to read at night- I also like the fact that the light isn’t blinding in the middle of the night . The wireless charging is an added bonus!

    In addition to doing everything a bedside clock/alarm/radio does, it also is a cord-less phone charging pad. A charging pad usually costs as much as the entire unit - so you get the alarm/radio for free!

    Overall it’s a great alarm clock. Sound is good. My only complaint is that the numbers are pretty small. I don’t have the greatest vision but I still feel they are too small.

    Simple to set up and use. Has all the features I wanted and need. Sounds good as a bedroom speaker. And no problem charging phone and it confirms it is actually charging the phone

    I wanted an alarm clock that I could play music instead of an annoying alarm. This works perfect! It’s an even bigger bonus that I can charge my phone on top at night.

    Alarm works great many choices to choose from and the volume is loud enough to wake me up. I find the wireless charging pad on the top was a great idea. and use it all the time.

    I like this iHome. Wireless charger works well. Works with my iPhone X well. Buttons are a bit cumbersome. No traditional FM/AM radio which is a negative.

    I like the tone it makes when the alarm goes off in the morning. I don’t like that I cannot set up the Bluetooth or the charger. I just keep trying.

    Not sure what is going on, but I cannot use the charging feature for my iPhone 8 because my phone gets too hot. If I still had the box, I would return it.

      During wireless charging or fast charging, the device may feel hotter to the touch. This does not affect the device's lifespan or performance and is in the device's normal range of operation. if the battery becomes too hot, most phone will stop charging (based on phone model). iHome

    Great multipurpose alarm clock. Blue tooth to play music, wireless phone charger, and charger connections on the back. Makes less clutter on my night stand.

    Having the alarm clock charge the phones saves space on both nightstands. Has battery that keeps time and other info if power goes out in the night.

    Clock is easy to see and looks great. You have to be careful with the placement of the phone for charging, but works well.
