Summary: I like it, but the male connector is too short and requires a Case Adapter for iPhone 6 Plus and all Lightning Accessories; Female Lightning to Male Lightning Case Adapter that Passes Full Functionality. dockStubz for Lightning by CableJive
Like others have stated yes you do have to take ...

Summary: Like others have stated yes you do have to take the phone out of the case in order to attach it to the docking station however, I was having to do that before with my other docking station so this is a non issue for me.
Summary: I bought this to use as an alarm clock and speaker for iphone5. It works fine. I did need to remove my otter ox case from the phone to dock it on the base, but that is a particularly bulky case.
Summary: I wanted a bedside clock that I could use to charge my iPhone 6 Plus. I also wanted to be able to connect my phone without having to remove the case. I have yet to find a clock radio with an iPhone dock that will allow you to dock the phone without removing all or part of the case.
Summary: I am sending this back because this docking station won't charge if your phone is in a case. Who's phone is not in a case? Epic fail. You have to take your phone out of its case to fit into docking station.
Summary: I bought this in January of 2013 as a Christmas gift return deal. So I've been using it for 10 months now. If you use the USB in the back for your phone, and try to listen to the radio, no mas. Any keystroke on the phone will override the FM radio and shut it off and switch it to USB mode.
Summary: Pros: - great sound out of this small unit. - the USB port in the back is a great feature. - controls are nice Cons: - the brightness settings are almost useless. There are three: extremely bright, extremely dim, and dim to the point it can't be seen.
Summary: I bought this on a gamble that it might work with my iPhone 6. It does indeed work but I do not use a case. I use Invisishield so If you use a case there might be an issue. Then again, the iPhone 6 is thinner so maybe there's more of a chance it will work.
