    Out of the Google conference today I am really digging the Google Pixel Stand. Is there something similar for the iPhone? What are the closest adaptations?

    I think it will charge an Qi compatible device so you could use if for the iphone

    Would it provide additional functionality like the stand does? I think it shows a special alarm view and whatnot. I assume not, but this is my first wireless charging iPhone (new XS owner)

    Pixel 3 exclusive features seem fairly tame to me, mainly:
    • Google Assistant
    • Google Photos
    • Nest Hello
    if you use Clock app's Bedtime feature, you get a similar morning alarm view on the iPhone.

    I personally don't need nor want my phone to become an "always on" device for Photos and doorbell, but to each its own.

    Anyway, if you don't care for these either, you can use Pixel Stand for iPhone. Although at $79, not worth it for me personally.

    Have you tried this yourself? Right now I just put my iPhone in and it lays on my night stand, but it would look better I think if it had some sort of display on.

    I can search for it, but any recommended links showing how to use the Bedtime feature with a wireless charging stand? I use it, but again I don't currently have a wireless charging stand.

    I don't think I'll buy the Pixel stand for iPhone, I just liked the features. What would be really great for me a similar stand for when I'm cooking - so I don't have to use an iPad I don't have. :)
