If nostalgia is something you love getting high on, the Elgato M4 Stand is the perfect stand for your iPhone. Unlike the other stands the Elgato M4 does something unique, it turns your iPhone into the classy old Mac (Yes the Macintosh!) Remember the W3 Apple Watch stand that was featured everywhere a while ago, well that too has come from the stables of Elgato.
Most of the folks will yearn for a Mac replica owing to its old school design and the nostalgic charm however on the functionality front one wouldn’t prefer to compromise. The Elgato M4 comes with a lightning cable which will simultaneously charge the device as its docked and this also creates an impression of actually using a power cable for an old Mac!
One can pair this up with a Bluetooth keyboard/mouse. However one can either use a keyboard or a mouse, I just wish that Elgato had included an old school mouse with the stand as well. The Elgato M4 Stand for the iPhone will be available on its website priced at $24.99 and is being offered in the Classic White color or a new Black. However, one caveat though is that the case appears to be compatible only with iPhone 6, 6s and 7 which leaves the “Plus” variant owners in the lurch.
The Elgato M4 stand is made out of scratch free silicone which is expected to protect your iPhone and cable from scratched along with adding a soft texture to the stand. However, the Elgato stand doesn’t come with lightning cable and only comes with a provision for connecting one to the phone. Apple iPhone has been complemented with many innovative cases including the one on which you could scribble notes, the Elgato M4 is something that will take back in time and relish the good old Mac monitor powered by an iPhone.
