For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Henge Docks to give MacRumors readers a chance to win a Gravitas dock for the iPhone or iPad.

Made from a heavy, sturdy metal alloy base, the Gravitas is designed for single-handed docking and undocking, but it's also made to minimize the amount of space that it takes up on a desk.

gravitas1
It is made from an alloy that's 265 percent denser than aluminum and it weighs in at 2.5 pounds, giving it enough stability to work with both the iPhone and the iPad. Due to the design, it's compatible with thin cases, such as those made by Apple, but it won't work with thicker Otterbox-style case options.

The Gravitas works with the iPhone 6, 6s, 7, and 7 Plus, along with multiple iPad models. It ships with a three-foot USB cable for charging and it also features a 3.5mm Stereo Audio Out port for listening to music.

Henge Docks normally charges $69 for the Gravitas, but we have four docks to offer to MacRumors readers for free. To enter to win, use the Rafflecopter widget below and enter an email address. Email addresses will be used solely for contact purposes to reach the winner and send the prize. You can earn additional entries by subscribing to our weekly newsletter, subscribing to our YouTube channel, following us on Twitter, or visiting the MacRumors Facebook page.

The contest will run from today (April 21) at 11:45 a.m. Pacific Time through 11:45 a.m. Pacific Time on April 28. The winners will be chosen randomly on April 28 and will be contacted by email. The winners will have 48 hours to respond and provide a shipping address before new winners are chosen.

With the shown inserts, and the promised available inserts for future gen iPhones/iPads, I doubt that'll be a problem. Winners should get at least a couple of years use out of them.

Even if purchased, quite an enticing item actually, imho. One look at their website ('https://hengedocks.com/pages/gravitas') will tell you a lot of thought has gone into designing these Gravitas docks. From the hefty 2½ lb weight to compensate for the modest footprint, to the TouchId cutout, to the USB and Audio jacks with an included USB cable, this is an attractive package at a decent price point for those looking for an iPhone/iPad dock.

No, Apple is sticking with their dumb connector at least for another generation. Edit: Oh, you mean the iPhone shape? IDK.

How many people use docks?
Not anymore. I don't want to buy an expensive dock then have my phone randomly consider it "not genuine" one day. My iPhone 4 is still sitting in my iHome alarm clock, though, and I like it.

Never received it. Wondering if the email was a phishing attempt again...

All likely rumors point to a Lightning-to-USB-C on the new iPhone. Plus, everyone is going to have several of those USB-A plugs from Apple as well as all the other USB-A plugs for various electronics. This is a non-issue.

I definitely count myself in the group of people who constantly use docks. And good news for me, because I won the giveaway! I think this is the first drawing I've ever won.

I currently use the Lamicall Stand ('http://amzn.to/2pZCetB') (when connected to headphone amp via lightning to 30-pin) and a Native Union Dock+ ('http://amzn.to/2pybS0k') (when charging/syncing to rMBP)
