    Disappointed that Apple haven't made a dock for iPhone 6 because the previous docks have been great quality.

    However, I found it's easy to adapt an iPhone 5S dock to accommodate the new phone.

    First step is to use a small hacksaw to remove the sides from the space where the phone sits:

    Then, fill in the holes in the bottom of the space using some white filler (I used the stuff you normally use on window frames):

    The final result is a good solid dock that holds the phone well:

    Way to get my hopes up, then destroy them like you did that dock.

    That's hideous. You could have at least gotten a dremmel or something to make a clean cut.

    Haha! Thanks for the laugh, OP. Can't argue that it doesn't work though. ;)
