Bose started promoting a new speaker dock designed for Apple's Lightning connector. The SoundDock Series III allows direct docking of an iPhone or iPod via the updated Lightning port.
- 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.
- Auxiliary input lets you play other audio devices.
The system also comes with a remote control for playback. The speaker weighs in about 4.6 lbs. and requires an AC power hookup, so no battery operation. The SoundDock Series III w/ Lightning connector is expected to ship in 7-10 days with a list price of $249.95.
