Alongside the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus, Apple today debuted four new docks that are compatible with the new iPhones and the existing iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. The docks come in colors that match the finish of the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus and are available in Gold, Rose Gold, Space Gray, and Silver. The docks are available for purchase immediately from Apple's online storefront and are priced at $49.99.

I really like the space gray dock, but just like with the iPhone 6 dock, I'm worried about putting all the pressure on just the lightening port. There is no back support...Perhaps I'm just being paranoid.

Wait, you're being sarcastic? Or will an Apple store replace a cord for me? Cause I've had lightning cables wear out under what I'd consider pretty normal use. I never bothered trying to take it in.
I've brought a lighting cable in and it was replaced for free. I brought in a MBP power supply who's cord had obvious cat bite on it (not mine previous owner of MBP) and they replaced it for free.

Oh Yeah? Guess just my perspective then. My first 30 pin device was an iPhone (the original Edge). Its dock didn't fit my later 3GS (due to the shape of the phone) so I bought another dock. And then I had a 4S, which was a block shape and again didn't fit;
It is annoying when that happens. That said, you can probably make a pretty good guess as to which docks will work between generations (at least until the connector changes) and those that won't. Anything form fitting, having some sort of recess or whatever will likely be problematic where designs such as the current Apple dock or the Twelve Sough Hi-Rise are pretty likely to stand the test of time since all they essentially expose is a dock connector (and an adjustable back rest in the case of the Hi-Rise). It'd probably take Apple recessing the connector for those to cease working, which seems unlikely.

My advice would be to deal with the fact that one day the dock will become redundant, but at the same time be mindful of the form factor if you want to last several phone releases. You probably will find a device that minimises issues for you during phone upgrades.
