I am a devoted Mac user.

Had an iPhone for many years, up until #5 then switched to Android.

I just wanted a bigger screen.

Now that iPhone may be introducing a larger screen that is close to that of the Galaxy Note 3, I am highly considering returning to the brand.

The one thing that I am wondering...

When iPhone switched from USB Pin connectors to Lightning cable, it also stopped making media docks.

I like to park my phone in an upright dock every night and have music or ambient noise play from phone to my stereo device.

I know Apple doesn't make a lightning cable dock -- at least I can't find one.

Has anyone else been able to successfully make one that works?

Thanks

Thank you for this. First time I have seen such a dock.

Do they make it for the 5S? Or is it compatible?

I realize this is very premature, but I just want to make certain that if I consider an iPhone 6 that there is a lightning cable dock available.

There should be one available for it.

If you realize it's premature then how do you expect to make certain? Nothing's certain until Apple announces it. There probably will be speaker docks available but they seem to have been losing popularity due to Airplay and bluetooth.

Apple does make a lightning dock just like for the iPhones previous, with the same line out audio port on back as previous Apple docks.
