Henge Docks Gravitas Lightning Dock Supports iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus

We reviewed the Henge Docks Gravitas Lightning Dock and loved it. (Read the review.) It is, in fact, the dock that sits on the nightstand next to my bed. It is stylish, weighs enough to create a stable base for iOS devices,  and works with various device adapters. Now it will even support the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6+.

As I put it in my initial review,

Every now and then a device accessory comes along that simply stands out in a crowded market. That is the case with the Flote M2 Tablet Stand we recently reviewed and it is the case with the Henge Dock Gravitas Lightning. Simply put, if you have an iOS device equipped with a Lightning connector this is the best dock around.

Now Henge Docks has announced that its Gravitas Lightning Dock will support the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. This is part of the company’s “Life After Device” program and is in keeping with their commitment of creating great accessories that will work with more than a single generation of device. In this case, the program means they will be offering two new customized inserts – – one for the iPhone 6 and one for the iPhone 6 Plus. Both inserts come in handy to get with case compatibility, are now available for preorder at hengedocks.com.

As Henge Docks explains:

All metal construction and weighing an impressive 2.5 lbs. (1.2 kg), the Henge Docks Gravitas Lightning Dock ensures devices stay upright and secure, yet allows it to stay put when grabbing the device to go. A minimal footprint of only three inches (77mm) maximizes desk space. The dock is perfect for use with iPhone and iPad to connect speakers via the onboard DAC, charge and sync devices with the included USB cable, and the seven-degree angle of the dock is optimal for FaceTime. Swappable inserts provide utmost adaptability, so users have one dock for all of their iOS devices, including iPhone 6/6 Plus, iPhone 5/5s/5c, iPad mini, iPad Air and iPad 4th gen.
