If you’re looking to mount your iPhone 6 or 6 Plus while driving, iBolt has a new solution with the iPro 2 car dock. This is the world’s first MFI-approved car dock. The dock mounts to your windshield using a super strong suction cup and is mounted on a hinged arm. So you can adjust the position to your liking. The iPro 2 also features a ball joint to give your pick of portrait or landscape modes. The sliding adjustment latch allows this dock to hold phones anywhere from the tiny iPhone 5 & 5S to the big daddy 6 Plus. What’s more, it also works with cases. In fact, it’s specifically designed to accept the flap on LifeProof and Otterbox protection cases. If you’re worried about being able to find a power outlet, the iPro2 comes with a 2m (6.6 foot) Lightning cable. The mount is even designed to not cover up the iPhone’s camera so you can use it as a dash cam. The iPro will also mark the introduction of iBolt’s Dock n Drive app for iOS. The app had previously been an Android exclusive.
The iBOLT iPro2 costs $49.99 and you can get it, and iBolt’s Android compatible docks, at the company’s website.
