Dock accessories are a cool and convenient way to keep your iPhone charged, ready for action, and always in your sight. They vary greatly in size, finish, and price, so there are a ton of options on the market. Some can double as highly capable stereo systems, while others can also charge your Apple Watch. Here's a roundup of the best iPhone docking stations for all the latest iPhone models, including the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X.
This dock from Rerii is strong enough to hold an iPad, and it offers an adjustable design to accommodate your iPhone — even if it's stored in a thick case. It's made of natural bamboo and also features a sturdy aluminum base. This charging stand is one of the few that includes a lightning cable. We also like that it has rubber padding to protect your iPhone or iPad's backside against scratches and scuffs.
The ElevationDock not only looks amazing, but it's also a joy to use. It's one of the most stable and secure docks you can buy. It's made of medical-grade silicone, comes in black or silver, and features stainless steel accents.
The dock includes an Apple-certified 5-feet long braided lightning cable, and it's compatible with both the iPad and iPhone — even if your device has a case on — thanks to its adjustable design. It can also be used to charge your AirPods or Apple TV remote. Our only complaint is its included cable can't be swapped for a different cable, so if it breaks you have to replace the entire unit.
The official Lightning Dock from Apple is one of the few docks that lets you listen to music while your iPhone is charging. That's all thanks to this dock's built-in 3.5-millimeter headphone jack. The dock is made from aluminum, and it comes in color variants that'll perfectly match your iPhone. There's black, gold, silver, rose gold, and space gray. The dock lets you sync your iPhone if you have it plugged into a computer, too. Despite its high price, the dock doesn't include a lightning cable.
If you're the proud owner of an iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods, this charging solution will definitely reduce clutter on your nightstand. The dock is heavy and doesn't slide around, and it effectively organizes your cords. Your iPhone rests at a 60-degree angle, which is ideal for FaceTime calls. The iPhone dock adjusts to accommodate most cases, too. This option doesn't include any charging cables or USB chargers.
This modern dock has a sleek-looking design that'll complement any office. It's made from aluminum, comes in black, and has a convenient passthrough hole for your charging cable to slide through to help keep your desk tidy. The dock's adjustable multi-angle design is perfect for FaceTime video calls. The stand stays sturdy, and it has rubber pads to prevent it from sliding on your desk or end table.
This dock may be a little more pricey than others, but it's incredibly sleek and capable of charging four devices simultaneously. It works with any iPhone or iPad with a Lightning connector and the Apple Watch. You'll find two built-in USB ports on its backside for charging your other devices. The case is made of aluminum, and it comes in black, silver, gold, or rose gold, which all complement your iPhone fantastically.
There's also a variant that has a built in Bluetooth speaker that comes in handy for playing rain noises to fall asleep to when it's bedtime.
This iPhone dock will look great on your desk at work. It comes in rose gold to perfectly match your iPhone. The base has a nonslip design, and you're able to adjust your iPhone to different viewing angles while it's docked. One thing worth noting: You'll probably have to remove your case with this dock, unless it's really thin.
The Belkin PowerHouse dock can simultaneously charge your Apple Watch via an integrated magnetic charger. The setup allows the dock to charge both an iPhone and an Apple Watch using only one cable (which is included). It comes in black or silver, and it's a cool and convenient charging solution. We like that it's adjustable to accommodate your iPhone's case.
The Twelve South HiRise 2 is an excellent iPhone dock with a metal body whose clever design allows you to also use it with an iPad or a Nintendo Switch. Its deluxe retail package includes a Lightning and a microUSB cable. The latter is particularly handy if you use your iPhone with a battery case. The HiRise 2 comes in black, silver, and white colors.
One of the most premium iPhone docks around, this Grovemade version fuses wood and stainless steel or brass. Exceptionally crafted in the U.S., the dock weighs a tad above 3 pounds, so it feels as solid as its looks suggest. You'll love the Grovemade Dock if you have the budget to pick one up.
The Native Union DOCK+ works with all iPhone and iPad models that are equipped with a Lightning cable. It features a beautiful minimalistic design, a high-quality finish, and a stable base. Best of all, you can still plug your iPhone into this dock even if it's wearing a case. This premium dock comes in blue, black, and stone colors. Native Union also throws in a durable and snag-resistant lightning cable with its dock.
Another solid premium entry, the ElevationDock 3 is made of CNC milled aluminum, and it's available in white, stainless steel, and gold. It has an excellent build quality and a pleasantly understated design, and it can also accommodate iPhones with a protective case on. You get a MFi-certified Lightning cable with the purchase of the dock.
The Gravitas by Henge Docks has a metal alloy body that weighs a hefty 2.5 pounds, so you can easily dock your iPhone in and out with one hand. It has an audio line out, and it can also be used with an iPad, despite its compact footprint.
