As of December 8th, the Bose SoundDock Series 3 has been released. The SoundDock III features the Lighting charger to support playback and charging for the iPhone 5. We were skeptical for release of the SoundDock 3 before the holiday season, but Bose has finally released it’s newest dock at the retail price of $249.99.
If you have only the iPhone 5, I suggest the new Bose SoundDock 3.
The SoundDock Series III digital music system lets you play music from any iPod or iPhone model with an Apple Lightning connector, and enjoy it with Bose quality sound.
- Proprietary acoustic design delivers a unique combination of small size and proven performance.
- Convenient remote controls the system and basic iPod or iPhone functions, including playlist navigation.
- Works with and charges iPod and iPhone models with an Apple Lightning connector – With Apple’s newest technology, it appears this SoundDock will be the one to get going forward.
- Auxiliary input located in the rear of the SoundDock – lets you play other audio devices.
For those who have an iPhone 5, and want native charging from the Bose SoundDock, the new SoundDock 3 is the Bose Dock for you.
If you want to use the SoundDock for your iPhone 4, 4S and iPhone 5, I highly recommend the Bose® SoundLink® Bluetooth Mobile Speaker II – The Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Mobile Speaker II Features Bluetooth Capabilities for all Smart Phones and computers.
I have previously written up an article on how to make the Bose SoundDock II work with newer generation iPhones.
The Bose SoundLink Speaker will accomodate users with older, current and future iPhone models.
