    I have been using my old 30 pin iPod docks at home & at the office with my iPhones since my 3GS. Really thrilled that they are bringing the dock back.

    Looks like the 5c dock might be better to accommodate cases even when using the 5s.. any thoughts?

    But even though we should be glad the dock is back, is it the best option for its price? There are other Lightning docks out there that are better, but come at a higher price.

    Apple dock is quite reasonable at 29 bucks, IMO.

    I usually balk at the $29 accessories, but I will buy 3 of these. I love having my phone standing up & staring me in the face at my desk or bedside instead of laying flat.

    That's some really positive feedback... Maybe I should check these out. Is it really worth it just to stand it up though?

    Depends if you're fine just laying it on the desk all the time. For many of us, it's worth it for the convenience. For FaceTime, playing music, etc. A great usage for seeing your iPhone while on the laptop or something.

    I've been using a business card holder for the last year and two years before that with my old phone, plus my lighting cable plugged into the USB powerplug. On my nightstand and the clock I use every night has landscape mode.

    Same at work, another business card holder.

    Less than $5 at Walmart. :D

    Works for me…

    This looks really cool. Never had a dock before but i'll probably pick this up.

    I use a belkin flipblad in my office, fits the phone perfect, sits at a good angle too. The apple docks make the phone stand to upright.

    I'm a fan of this as well. I plan on definitely getting it plus one of the leather cases for my "Space Gray" iPhone 5S

    Love the dock, but for a dock, a lightning to USB cable and a plug, it's £65. That's extortionate. :eek:

    Just like the last one most likely it won't fit mist 5S iPhones that have a case. From the picture it looks as though the lightning connector is not extended far enough. Hopefully I'm wrong
