Not long after Apple introduced the first iPod and subsequently the first iPhone, there were companies making speaker accessories for the 2 gadgets in form of a docking station or “dock” in short. Place your iPod or iPhone on the dock then you can listen your music via the speaker. However things changed when Apple no longer selling the classic iPod and when Apple changed the iPhone connector from the old 30-pin connector that you found on classic iPod and iPhone to a new lightning connector, from that point onward, the existing iPod & iPhone speaker dock were rendered useless. And I bet many of you who still has the dock, is now only collecting dust somewhere in the corner of your house or storeroom or even on the attic.
