    I'm pretty surprised that I can't seem to find a plentiful choice of iPhone 6 docks.

    I had the Apple dock for the iPhone 4S and was looking for a small dock for my 6. All the options on Amazon that are made for the 6 have terrible ratings. I'm thinking of getting a Belkin dock for iPhone 5, but I'm afraid that they'll come out with a 6 model. It's been almost two months since the announcement.

    What dock are you using or would you recommend?

    You should check out the elevation dock! It's a very nice piece of aluminum that feels like what the Apple dock should have been!

    I am using a Belkin dock right now. It is inexpensive, well made.

    However, I think I would prefer the Twelve South HiRise because of TouchId. It's a bit awkward to use my thumb to unlock the phone when it's docked due to the angle and the clearance. The HiRise appears to have the iPhone flush or almost flush at the front,where as with the Belkin the iPhone is recessed half and inch.\\

    I use the Belkin one shown in the previous post - seems to work well for me (6 Plus).

    I have been using the Belkin since my iPhone 5 and love it. With the iP6, I find myself docking it more than the iP5 so that I can say "Hey Siri" without touching a button (you have to turn on that option).

    I wish the phone would sit flush to the front of the Belkin dock so that it is easier to use TouchId. As for now, I would have to turn my thumb sideway and press it against the bottom of the dock to use TouchId. I figure the Twelve South HiRise would be more user friendly as it sits higher and the phone is more or less flush with the front of the dock.

    What did you not like a about the HiRise?

    Thank you. I've been strongly tempted by the belkin, but I held off hoping they would make one specifically for the 6. Does it work with the Apple leather case?

    Yes - I use mine with my Apple leather case and it works just fine.

    Mine arrives tomorrow or Tuesday. Does it work fine both with and without a case? (I'm using Apple's leather case occasionally)

    Apple initially didn't make a dock for the iPhone 5 so I got one from the Lightning Dock (in Slate) and am now using this same dock for the iPhone 6.

    Thanks everyone, just got mine :)

    Just out of curiosity, you don't think it could damage the lighting port since the phone is only supported by the connector?

    No. I had the same dock for my iP5 for 2 years. Its Lightning port was fine the day I traded it in for my iP6. The phone is so light.

    I'd be worried about accidentally bonking the phone, more than the weight of it. It's sticking up vulnerably and, especially if it's in a bedroom where you tend to wander around the in the dark, very easy to hit.
