Elago is back with more retro-inspired fun. After introducing a fun Apple Watch charging stand earlier this year that can turn the wearable device into a small version of the original Macintosh, the company has unveiled a great version for the iPhone. The Elago M4 Stand will turn an iPhone 7, iPhone 6s, or iPhone 6 into a small Macintosh.

Made with soft silicone that won’t scratch the iPhone screen or exterior, just push your iPhone into the opening. Remove it by pushing a groove on the other side.
As a nice touch, you’ll have easy access to the volume up/down button when needed. Built-in cable management can also make organizing the Lightning cord easy.
There are a few downsides to consider, though. Anyone with a Plus iPhone version is out of luck. And while Elago specifically says its SlimFit case will work with the stand, expect that you’ll probably need to remove a case before fitting it in the stand.
But if you can live with those issues, it does like a unique way to place and charge your iPhone on a desk.
