This week's roundup of iOS accessories includes several items for mounting your iPhone to your dash. Plus: Docks, keyboards, flash drives, and more.

The $65 Spool Dock is “crafted in the U.S. from North American white oak, merino wool felt, and a weighty metal base.” Spool up your cable inside the dock to keep things tidy, then display your iPhone 6 atop the sturdy dock while it syncs and charges. Micro-suction pads on the bottom keep it affixed to the table-top, making it easier to dock and undock the phone using just one hand.

Not too much to say about the $35 JawGrip: It’s a dash-mounted phone holder that can swivel 360 degrees for optimum viewing, always with the phone held firmly in the device’s grip, naturally.

The $35 Xtand Go Z1 appears to be pretty similar to the JawGrip, but its suction base lets you mount it just about anywhere for best hands-free viewing—on the dash or even hanging from the windshield. It can hold your smartphone with or without its case.

The $30 Stance is billed as the “first tripod designed specifically for the iPhone”—the mount plugs directly into the Lightning port of later-model iPhones, and the base can extend to display it in portrait mode or collapse to become a lean-to for landscape viewing. It includes a cable adapter to keep things tidy while charging—and if nothing else the Stance (really) makes a handy bottle opener.

The $70 Keys-To-Go Bluetooth keyboard is somewhat reminiscent of the keyboard that accompanies every Microsoft Surface tablet—it’s lightweight, slender, and covered with FabricSkin, a spill-resistant material that’s easily cleaned. It comes in black, red, and teal.

Let Macally describe its $20 Hard-Shell Case with Detachable Cover: “Transparent bottom case protects the back while the sleek top cover protects your screen. Comes equipped with a magnetic on/off switch and a slight concave curve around the speaker to enhance audio.” It’s designed for the iPad Air 2, and it’s coming soon.

The iXpand Flash Drive for iPhone and iPad makes it easy to transfer files—including pictures and video—between your iOS devices and your computer: It’s equipped with a Lightning connector and a USB plug, and it comes in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB versions.

The $26 OEM 12X Telescope / Telephoto / Zoom Lens & Back Cover for Apple iPhone 6 is pretty much what it sounds like—a telescope lens and small stand that you attach to your iPhone 6 for long-distance shots that are as clear as day.
