7. Grovemade iPhone Dock:
This is one of the most beautiful looking and functional docks that I have ever seen. This is the hand-made wooden dock in US. The company was established in 2009 so it is a relatively young company. In the box, you get everything that you need except the lightning cable. You get two adapters one for lightning and one for 30-pin, this means that you can use this with practically any iPod or iPhone you would like.
The middle piece is made up of metal which is heavy so you can lift up your phone without any problem and has rubber feet around to make sure it won’t move around on your desk. The wooden piece has a magnet so it will align with middle piece and sit nicely. If you want to dock your iPhone with a case you just want to pull the lightning cable a bit higher so it fits nicely.

6. Quell & Co. Spool Dock:
Spool Dock from Quell & Co. is the most interesting iPhone Dock I have ever seen. Why? Because it comes in the most stylish and cool looking packaging and the way it is built from wood. It has micro suction cups that makes sure it stays on your desk. It uses three points of contact to make sure that your device stays stable inside the dock.
Installing a lightning cable is very simple. You just pull out the wooden piece and slide the cable in. The cable management is done in a very clever way. You twist the wooden dock and the cable rolls like a spool (which is its name). This amazing dock is compatible with all iPhones that support lightning connector and the iPad mini.
5. Henge Docks Gravitas:
The Henge Dock Gravitas is made up of a solid piece of aluminum which is as heavy as 11 iPhone 5S’s stacked up against each other and a rubber foot on bottom which means that it is not going to slide around on your table.

2. Twelve South HiRise:
This is my favorite dock from all the options available in market. It looks stylish and comes in two colors, black and white. You can even dock an iPad mini or your iPhone with the bulkiest cases (like OtterBox) with adjustable rear support so you won’t have to throw away your dock after getting a new case.
