Unlike products seen so far, this is not a simple dock in which a Lightning cable is inserted, but a dock that has its own Lightning connector.
The Lightning Dock by Gear4 therefore allows charging and syncing iOS devices with a computer.
However, the Gear4 dock does not offer output audio.
The 3.5mm jack is located at the base of the iPhone and iPod touch, making it impossible to use a hands-free kit or headset with the device on the dock.
The shape of the dock has been designed to comfortably hold the iPhone while in a slight rearward tilt so you can still look at the screen while it is plugged in.
