Apple iPhone Lightning Dock

Apple has just released the new iPhone Lightning Dock, an accessory that will allow you to easily charge an Lightning port-equipped iPhone from a vertical base. The device supports the newest iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, as well as the iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, and iPhone 5s. The iPod touch 5th generation is also compatible. As you can see in the image above, this is simply a Lightning connected that is rising up out of the base, which leads us to believe that this should easily support future models as well.

The iPhone Lightning Dock is powered by your own Lightnint to USB cable, and also has a 3.5mm headphone port, allowing you to listen to your iPhone audio through headphones while it is docked.

You can pick up the iPhone Lightning Dock now for $39.

This is the third attempt from the company at reinventing the laptop, bringing tablet parity into the product that runs on a full-on Intel Core i5 processor. It’s a large tablet. It’s a thin laptop. It’s a powerful 2 in 1. Is it the one for you, though?

apple watch charging cable price

Apple has announced that the Apple Watch will get about 18 hours of battery life per charge, and that it will charge from empty to 80% in about 90 minutes, or to 100% in about two-and-a-half hours. That's long enough for most anybody, but if you find yourself needing to charge in the midde of the day, you should know about the Magnetic Charging Cable for the Apple Watch, which makes it super easy to charge. As you can see in the image above, the Magnetic Charging Cable snaps to the rear side of the Apple Watch, making it easy to apply. The Apple Watch itself will include one of these chargers, and if you need an extra, you can buy a 2 meter Magnetic Charging Cable for $39, or a shorter (and cheaper) 1 meter Magnetic Charging Cable for $29.
