Lamicall iPhone Stand ($10)

Lamicall iPhone stand

If your budget is limited, then this sturdy aluminum alloy stand is worth a look. There is rubber padding to prevent any scratches, the hooks that hold your iPhone in place are roomy enough to accommodate rugged cases, and there are effective anti-slip pads on the bottom. The fixed angle works well for portrait or landscape and this dock will work with any model of iPhone. There i also a handy opening on the back to keep your Lightning cable out of the way. You can get it in silver or black finishes and it comes with a lifetime warranty. If you prefer more flexibility with the angle, then check out Lamicall’s adjustable stand.

Archeer Bamboo iPhone Dock ($10)

Archeer Bamboo Stand

A lot of iPhone docks stand out a little too much, but this smart bamboo dock is very unobtrusive. Archeer talks up the amplification, but don’t expect to hear a major difference as it only makes your iPhone slightly louder. The main attractions should be the simple design, bamboo construction, and low price. It would have been nice to have anti-slip pads on the bottom, though you could always add some yourself. This also won’t serve you if you want a charging dock as there is no space for a cable, it’s really just a stand for your desktop.

Elago M2 Stand ($19)

Elago M2 Stand

This simple, aluminum stand looks good and can accommodate any iPhone in portrait or landscape orientation. It features a cradle with two arms, along with a couple of pads to stop your iPhone from touching the metal. There’s an opening on the back for cable management. The bottom of the base has pads to cushion it and stop it from slipping. It’s not a heavy stand and it’s not adjustable, but it props up the iPhone at a useful angle and feels fairly sturdy. It also works with cases on, and you can stick any phone in it. It comes in quite a few different colors, including black, silver, grey, champagne, and rose gold.

Elevation Dock 3 ($90)

Elevation Dock 3

Sporting the same textured aluminum finish as Apple’s MacBooks, the Elevation Dock 3 is a really minimalist option. It’s designed to fit the iPhone 6 or 6 Plus or later. The silicone pads inside cushion your iPhone, and the back can be removed to accommodate an iPhone Plus wearing a case. The NanoPads on the bottom are designed to lock onto your desk, so you can use the dock one-handed and it stays stable. It comes with an official Apple Lightning connector and the cable runs out the back. You can get this dock in red, black, blue, and silver anodized aluminum.

Rokform Docking Station ($79)

Rokform Docking Station

There’s no chance this dock is slipping off your table, because it weighs more than 3 pounds and it’s crafted from solid aluminum. There’s a Rokform Lightning cable included, and you’ll find an insert to adjust the fit, so you can use it with a naked iPhone or with most cases. This dock also has speaker ports designed to enhance and redirect audio, and four hexagonal pads on the bottom protect the surface underneath. You can get it in silver, black, orange, or grey.

Kenu Stance Tripod ($25)

Kenu Stance Tripod

If you want something a bit different, then this compact tripod may tempt you. It allows you to prop up your iPhone in either landscape or portrait view. It’s ideal for photography, hands-free reading, or watching movies. It can also fold up to slot easily into your pocket or bag, and you can adjust the three legs to find the exact angle you want. Kenu tweaked the original design for this version, so it sports a stronger Lightning port connector and there’s a keyring attachment. It can even serve as a bottle opener.

Spigen S310 Stand ($22)

Spigen S310 Stand

You don’t have to spend a lot to get a stylish-looking aluminum stand. This one has a soft, black TPU cradle with two arms, so you can put your iPhone on it in landscape or portrait orientation. It will also accommodate most iPhone cases. The bottom has gel corners to prevent it from slipping. It’s just a stand, so there’s no charging cable, though there is space to plug one in, should you need to. This is a decent iPhone stand for the money.

Ventev Charge Stand 3000c ($45)

Ventev Chargestand 3000c

Frequent flyers will appreciate this device as it combines a charging dock with a portable, 3,000mAh battery. It’s not much of looker — in fact, it’s simple a grey plastic block — but it’s very practical. Flip it open will reveal a Lightning plug which your iPhone slots onto, and there are four tiny LEDs on the front to show remaining power in the battery. There’s also support for landscape orientation if you pull the Lightning cable out.

Sinijimoru Dock ($22)

Sinijimoru Dock

The Sinijumoru Dock is very sturdy and comes with an eye-catching design that resembles the letter “C.” It can accommodate the iPhone 5 and newer devices, and it’s designed to work with naked iPhones and those outfitted with slim cases. It takes a bit of effort to fit the cable into the plastic connector, but once in, you can easily slide the iPhone on using the back as a guide to the right angle. The dock also comes with a cable, but not a very good one, so bank on using your own. It’s made of aluminum with a line of soft silicone padding, which helps guard against any unwanted damage.
