In addition to launching a new 15-inch MacBook Pro with Force Touch and a cheaper 27-inch Retina iMac, Apple has also introduced its first official iPhone Lightning Dock with compatibility for both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Of course, being this late to the charging dock game means a number of fine solutions already exist at competitive prices.

While Apple’s timing of releasing an official iPhone Lightning Dock fit for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus comes 9 months after the new iPhones were first released, the late release certainly isn’t new for Apple. Many believed Apple was out of the charging dock business when the iPhone 5 was sold with a new design and new charging connector without an official dock solution from Apple until it released its own with the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c a year into the iPhone 5’s design.
The new Lightning Charging Dock for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is available for $39 with shipping availability currently at 1-3 days from the online store. Lightning Charging Dock is also in stock in a number of Apple Stores since the new product first appeared on the online store this morning.
