Best Features

I was surprised by how useful this dock really was, and I think most Apple lovers would agree.

Still not convinced....then let's find out what special features make it worth buying.

5 Best Features

  • Anti-Slip Premium Material
  • Eliminates Messy Cables
  • One Step Setup
  • Vertical Nightstand
  • Stylish Design

Anti-Slip Premium Material

The TPU silicon material not only feels and looks fantastic, it also serves a multi-use purpose.

The silicon is smooth to the touch, doesn't wear and tear after water washing, and prevents the stand from sliding all over the place. It's incredibly stable and can be placed on any desk or table without worry.

The dock's material is something you'll notice immediately, and it's one of the best highlights of the product.

Eliminates Messy Cables

The 3-in-1 design works like magic as it gets rid of multiple cables in an instant. There are three well placed slits on the base of the dock that you can slip the wires through and clean up the mess.

It's perfect for those who prefer an organized, non-cluttered environment, and it'll dilute the problem of having too many charging cables.

One Step Setup

The only requirements that are needed to set up the dock is an original Apple charging cable and an Apple device.

That's it!

To set up the dock, you have to place the cables through the holes/slits on the top and bottom of the cradle. The entire process should take less than 2 minutes to set up, and that's only if you're setting up all three Apple products.

Vertical Nightstand

The vertical view is excellent for nightstands, and it makes it easy to use FaceTime or Skype. You'll have full access to the controls, and it's a terrific hands-free experience.

More so the dock is the best way to turn your iPhone into an alarm clock or timer without needing to purchase a separate item; it's an all-in-one solution.

Stylish Design

The black color, rounded edges, and smooth texture provide style, durability, and practicality.

I love the sleek look of it, and I think it'll be a good fit for my desk. You can never go wrong with a darker color as it blends perfectly into the background.

I don't know if everyone will like the design, but you can't ignore the craftsmanship.

Biggest Complaints

Most of my complaints are extraneous and don't directly include the product, but they're still worth noting.

3 Biggest Cons

  • Charging Cables Not Included
  • Only Works With Original Cables
  • Non-adjustable

Charging Cables Not Included

I understand that companies would rather cut their costs than include added accessories, but it wouldn't kill them to have an extra lightning cable.

Speaking from experience, customers get upset when they discover they're not getting an all purpose item.

Only Works With Original Cables

The holes in the dock were only made to use with the original Apple charging cables, so you're out of luck if you own thicker third-party wires.

You can try to squeeze through other cables but that might affect the fit, and it will make it more difficult to remove later on.

Non-adjustable

If you're someone who likes to adjust their iPhone when placed on a stand, then you won't be happy either.

There's no way to adjust the placement of the charging port or the position of the iPhone (vertical only), and if you try to move it around, then your device may fall out of the dock or cable.

How It Compares to Other Products

If you prefer a more advanced but not as stylish stand, then I'd recommend the Oittm 5-in-1 Apple Watch/iPhone Stand. It has several USB ports and an adjustable screw that lets your shift the iPhone's vertical stance, however; it doesn't have a designated AirPod holder.

Other third-party gadgets offer the same functionality and mainly differ in the material used and what Apple items can be cradled, however, some have vertical and horizontal iPhone calibration.

Higher-end accessories like the Conido 3-in-1 Stand even offer wireless charging capabilities if you're willing to spend a little.

So yes there's a lot to choose from with a couple cool options, but it will ultimately depend on what you're looking for.

And as always, more doesn't necessarily mean better.

4 stars for 3-in-1 Apple Charging Dock

Final Review

I'm a fan of the functionality, practicality, and stylish aesthetic of the charging dock, and it's a cool accessory for Apple iPhone, Watch, and AirPod users.

I would give the 3-in-1 AirPod, Apple Watch & iPhone Charging Dock 4.5 out of 5 stars.

The TPU silicon material is multi-functional, the dock is easy to set up, and it can be used anywhere. My issues primarily revolve around the lack of add-ons, adjustable features, and that you can only use the original Apple wires.

Maybe none of my concerns bother you, but for customers who want to save money, it can get annoying.

Despite the cons, I would recommend this 3-in-1 Apple charging dock because the benefits overwhelmingly outweigh the negatives, and for Apple consumers, the practicality and style of this accessory is worth it.

        Yes that's what I think it is, but of course not everyone has the means to own a ton of cables. Thank you so much.

        It's a bit mean that charging cables are not included. Maybe they assume that you already have them. Another well-balanced and very informative article.
