iPhone Stand, Belkin Apple DockKit Auto-Tracking

At CES, Belkin is introducing five new devices, including the first-ever Apple DockKit-compatible iPhone stand with auto-tracking, a 6-in-1 GaN Dock, and Qi2 accessories. Here are the specifications for the BoostCharge 3-in-1 Magnetic Stand, the Auto-Tracking Stand Pro, and the remaining new Apple accessories.

The Pro Auto-Tracking Stand

At WWDC in June 2023, Apple unveiled the DockKit API, enabling accessory manufacturers to sell motorised, self-tracking iPhone stands.

With its Auto-Tracking Stand Pro for iPhone, Belkin has revealed that it would be the first company to offer a DockKit accessory—a feature that has not yet been seen in any other product.

The specs and key characteristics are as follows:

  • Made with MagSafe technology, the Stand Pro allows for simultaneous charging and talking at up to 15W of fast wireless charging when it is connected in.
  • 360º Movement Tracking: No matter how many times a person round the room, DockKit’s movement tracking feature always keeps them in the picture.
  • 90o Motorised Auto Tilt: record at any angle with front or rear cameras and have the camera automatically alter its video angle to record at a high or low angle.
  • One button can be used to activate or deactivate movement monitoring; an LED indication will show if tracking is on.
  • Rechargeable battery: no need for a wall outlet—the dock has a 5-hour battery life that allows you to record video while you’re on the road. A 30-watt power source and a 5-foot USB-C cable are supplied.
  • Composed of at least 75% recycled post-consumer materials
    The Auto-Tracking Stand Pro, which costs $179.99, will be offered by Belkin “soon.”

The 3-in-1 Magnetic Stand BoostCharge Pro

Next up comes Belkin’s first Qi2-compatible multi-device charger, the BoostCharge Pro 3-in-1 Magnetic Stand.

  • iPhone 15W rapid wireless charging (same as MagSafe)
  • Apple Watch (Series 7 and later) fast charging
  • movable hinge
  • AirPods and other earphones can be wirelessly charged.
  • functions both in landscape and portrait mode on an iPhone
  • accessible in black and white
  • composed of 75% recycled post-consumer materials

The $149.99 BoostCharge Pro 3-in-1 Magnetic Stand is scheduled to go on sale in March 2024.

Core GaN Dock 6-in-1

The I/O that comes with this small 6-in-1 dock is as follows:

  • 1x port for HDMI 2.0 (4K at 60Hz)
  • one gigabit Ethernet connector
  • Two USB-C ports—one with a 96-watt power supply and the other at 5 GB/7.5 watts—
  • Two USB-A ports (7.5W, 5Gbps)
  • 50% more compact than rival 6-in-1 docks

Belkin is already selling the 6-in-1 Core GaN Dock for $139.99, and additional shops will soon carry it as well.

The magnetic power bank BoostCharge Pro

Additionally, this new portable battery has Qi2:
