When the iPhone 5 was released, Apple’s Phil Schiller reportedly said that there won’t be an official charging dock for Apple’s latest iPhone. Certainly not a deal breaker for many, but we’re sure that there are many users out there who wouldn’t mind the convenience and ergonomics that a dock could offer. However given that the Lightning adapter requires an authentication chip, we expect that there won’t be as many docks up for grabs. Well if you’re in the market for an iPhone 5 dock, this Kickstarter project called Dock+ might be worth checking out, especially given its simplistic nature and its choice of materials.
Featuring a very sleek and polished look, the Dock+ has been made out of solid steel and according to its creator, this makes it pretty hefty which means that it should remain stable while your phone is attached to it, and won’t wobble or tip while you use it while attached to the Dock+. It will also feature a non-slip rubber bottom along with a soft rubber pad so that when you insert your iPhone into the dock, it won’t mar the aluminum backing. For those with an iPhone case, the Dock+ will be shipped with two soft rubber pads of different thickness to accommodate the extra bulk of cases. Like we said, its simple, elegant and appears to be of good quality so if you’d like to see the Dock+ be made a reality, head on over to its Kickstarter page for the details.
