If you work with your iPhone at the side of your laptop, then you know how handy a dock can be. Whether you’re just looking at notifications as they pop up or watching the time, it’s handy to have your device kept at a proper viewing angle.
There are plenty of styles on the market, but few will look as good as the Just Mobile HoverDock. Even better, it doesn’t only work with iPhones; it can also work with other Lightning cable charged items.
The HoverDock’s body is encased in “an exquisite unibody aluminum disc”, its middle has a “hollow soft-touch plastic body with smart cable storage.”
To install the cable, you simply thread the Lightning cable tip through the opening at the top of the dock, attach the included small black plastic “elevator clip”, then wrap the cable around the spool in the center. Replace the bottom section, and twist it to take up any slack in the cable.
Here’s what the dock looks like when it is ready to go …
The result is a minimalistic, aesthetically pleasing, and Mac-matching dock.
