    Does anyone know any local retailer where I could buy a lightning dock for iPhone 6? Called up Powermac, Switch, and BTB and none of them carry it. Not even the recently launched Apple Lightning dock is available locally. I am looking at getting one from Twelve South brand. So if you guys know where I could buy one in the Metro, please do let me know! Thanks.

    If you're okay with generic ones, Cable Monster (shop name) sells a lightning dock for Php 495.00. This is what I'm currently using on my Plus. The good thing about it is, it's compatible with any of the cases that I have - including my UAG.

    I don't have a decent camera with me, so I can't take a photo of the dock with my phone on it. But this dock is slightly smaller than the 6 Plus but it does hold the phone well because the dock has a little bit of weight.

    Actual Photo: As you can see, not the most premium looking dock out there, but it does get the job done at a very affordable price.

    FYI: Checked Amazon and I found my dock:

    Oh yeah I saw it as well on the online Apple Store PH. The problem is, it will take three weeks to get the item here in the Philippines (at least that's what I was told when I phoned their customer service since it has to go through custom clearance and stuff).

    That looks nice, Miguel. It looks like it has nice support for the back of the phone. Speaking of which, that's the issue that I have with the lightning dock from Apple. It looks like it doesn't have any support for the back at all. So all weight will be on the lightning port and plug.

    Clean, simple and looks premium.

    Amazon has it for $50
    Massdrop has it for $34 (11hrs left and estimated ship date is June 11) about the same price as hiRise from Twelve South - I haven't decided yet.
