Apple Announces the New MacBook

During Apple’s Spring Forward event today, the brand-new 12-inch Retina MacBook was introduced. The incredibly thin notebook features a revamped trackpad, Core M processor, edge-to-edge keyboard and a single USB-C port. This last feature, the USB-C port, is probably the new MacBook’s most talked about feature. It’s the only USB port on the MacBook! What is everyone going to do with all of their USB devices they’ve invested in over the years? Don’t worry, Henge Docks has got you covered!

Since the new MacBook was just announced, we don’t yet have a timeline for a dock for this new notebook, but we do have one in the works. Our product developers are already working on potential designs for the dock. We’re all very excited about the new MacBook, and the dock that awaits it. Once we have more information, we will of course let everyone know!

Are there any key features or functions you’re looking for in our forthcoming dock for the new MacBook? Let us know in the comments!

    Hi,

    Are there any release dates for any of the new MacBook Pro 2016 models, or is it better to look elsewhere?

    Thanks

    Dear Henge development team,
    In my case, I’ll ask to have dual HDMI output in order to connect 23" monitors, but have you thought before about developing a wireless docking station? ..

    Please try to give all users a timeline. thanks

    Hi, is there any hope that something appears before X-mas, or shall I tell Santa to bring me another dock?

    @JCRII Thanks for the feedback! I will pass this along to our Product Development team.

  • JCRII says...

    Lot’sa USB 3.0 ports and front facing SD reader would be on my ideal dock. I am really looking forward to this dock. The sooner it ships, the sooner I will have them on my desks at home and in the office.

    On April 07, 2016

  • Henge Docks says...

    @Chipp and @Pete M, we are working on a new dock for this MacBook however we do not yet have a timeline for it. We will update our blog and other social media channels as soon as we have any new information. I apologize for any inconveniences.

    On March 07, 2016

  • Chipp says...

    Any word on an ETA yet? It’s been close to a year since you posted this.

    On March 05, 2016

  • Pete M says...

    Is there any estimate on the timeline? One of the more popular competitors is shipping their units Feb 29. Of course i prefer the vertical stand but I need a dock sooner. Thanks

    By the time this thing is released the new macbook will be out and you’ll have to redesign it again!

    On January 07, 2016

  • Henge Docks says...

    Not yet – still working on a development timeline. We’ll update as we have more information!

    On January 06, 2016

  • Nikos says...

    …is there any info about launching a dock for the new Mac Book?

    On January 03, 2016

  • Brandon B. says...

    Any updates on a release? Hopeful for a horizontal henge dock true to the slim-line nature of the new MacBook! Something along the lines of what is offered for the MacBook Air, but potentially even slimmer with enough stability to be used desk-top as well as lap-top. As far as connections go – you all always seem to hit the mark!

    On January 02, 2016

  • Alasdair Lumsden says...

    Desperately waiting for Henge to release this, hope it’s soon!

    In terms of features, we want to buy lots of these for use in our business. In business, the essential ports are:

    HDMI
    RJ45 Ethernet (so a built in USB-C/USB3 based Ethernet device is needed)
    USB

    Plus a USB-C port for powering the device.

    Please have 2 HDMI ports on the new 2015 MacBook dock, oh please oh please…Thanks!

    @matteo – We’re still in the design stages! We’ll update the blog when we have more info!

    On October 07, 2015

  • Matteo says...

    Any news about the hengedock for this new macbook 12 ?

    I think that a small and cool vertical dock with RJ45+USB+HDMI+charger would be really awsome (DP is not necessary because this mac support 4k @30hz even with DP, so we can stay with HDMI).

    On October 06, 2015

  • Irvin says...

    I second Brian’s wish list: Dual HDMI or display port monitor support, multiple USB ports, rj-45 gig port, charging. And I, like Bec, would like to see some type of email notification list.

    On September 25, 2015

  • Henge Docks says...

    We don’t yet have any dates regarding the new MacBook dock. Once we do, we will definitely put it up on the blog!

    My wishlist includes dual HDMI or display port monitor support, multiple USB ports, rj-45 gig port, charging.

    It would be great if you could offer a mailing/waitlist (or even a discounted pre-order), for those of us who would love to get one as soon as it comes out…

    Any new information on the vertical dock for new Macbook?

    On June 30, 2015

  • Robert says...

    Please make sure the new dock has factory integrated pass-through connectors as opposed to cables held in with screws. I work IT for a large school district and we use your docks for our administrators. Some have MacBook Air and some MacBook Pro. The Air docks are perfect; the laptops easily slide in and out and the cables simply plug into the dock itself. Love them! The Pro docks are a mess; they require the actual cables like power and USB be clamped into the dock. They often work loose and even when they don’t, they permanantly tie up the expensive power adapters. Please use the sleek and simple design of your MacBook Air dock for the new MacBook dock. Thanks!

    @Conrad – I’ll let our engineers know that you’re interested in that!

    @Adam, Carlos and Hadley – Great feedback! Thanks for your ideas!

    Keep the comments coming, our engineering team is always interested to know what our customers are looking for in our products!

  • Conrad says...

    Have you considered a dock that also has an integrated DAC? Perhaps something that you can team up with Audioengine on. It would be nice to reduce the additional clutter of a stand-alone DAC.

  • Adam Doyle says...

    Hey, just came across this product. How awesome. Iv just got the new macbook and can wait for your 12" version of this!
    I do think the dock needs usb 3 ports, and ethernet, so it can be hard wired when its at my desk.
    Something else you might like to consider, I love to have my macbook in a very slim, but protective case. To keep it looking good. STM cases are my current favourite, amazing feel, good looking, and quite protective. Im still waiting for their 12" version but a dock that could take the macbook whilst it was in a decent case would be the most amazing package. You should really consider either making multiple sleeves for the dock based on which case you use, or make your own amazing case, to match the dock. This would really take your product to the next level of perfection !!!

    I have a new MacBook (space gray) and will be receiving another one from my new employer in August. The work computer will be docked to a Thunderbolt display. I haven’t decided if I’ll go with the new Macbook yet or an older model, but much of it will depend on the docking station availability come August. I would prefer a vertical dock that will allow me to charge, connect to the display, ethernet, and printing all at the same time, perhaps with some additional ports just in case.

    I also second the above poster about the color choices, but it’s not a deal-breaker. Since the display won’t match the laptop, it kind of makes the issue irrelevant.

    Thanks everyone for your comments and feedback! We truly appreciate it!

    I’m considering buying this laptop, it would be nice having a solid docking station for desk work. I would like to see an SD card slot, hdmi or thunderbolt, multiple USB 3.0, audio, Ethernet, and maybe a USB type C or two.

    On May 17, 2015

  • Wes Peters says...

    I’ll so want a vertical HengeDock for my upcoming MacBook. I’ll want a video connector of some sort, HDMI is probably the most useful, with support for 4K. I’ll be docking it to a Samsung 4K monitor. A GigE port would be very handy, since the WiFi infrastructure at work is stuck in the B/G/N world. USB 2.0 ports for keyboard and mouse are a given, plus at least one USB 3.0 port, more would be nice if they don’t drive the price up too much. Either include a power/charging supply, or a connector where I can plug in the Apple USB C charger, and I’ll be a happy customer.

    On the design front, matching colors will be nice. Mine will be space gray.

    @Ash and Chuck – thank you for your feedback! We’re currently designing our dock and your thoughts are very valuable to us! Once we have more information, we will update everyone on the blog!

  • Chuck Schymanski says...

    Take a look at the dock for the Microsoft Surface Pro 3. It’s ports/connectivity are right on (except for maybe needing more USB 3.0 ports – seems like you can never have enough). It’s an excellent product. If you provided something similar to that dock for the new 12" MacBook – I’ll place my order since I already have my new MacBook.

    On April 29, 2015

  • Ashok Kuthyar says...

    Le me know when you will have the docking station available for the new 12 inch macbook with USB-C type connector. Thanks.

    Hi there,

    Do you have any update as to when the dock will be available?

    Thanks!

    @Scott – thank you for your feedback! This has been noted to our designers!

    Apple is showing a USB-C connector that provides a pass-thru USB-C, a USB and a Video Out (either HD15/VGA or HDMI, but not both). I’d like an RJ45/Ethernet cable included as well, and if you could add a 2nd USB port, that would be good. So to recap: 1 USB-C Charger, 2 USB, 1 HDMI, 1 HD15/VGA and 1 RJ45/Ethernet would do it for me.

    How about connectivity to multiple video output standards… displayport, HDMI and DVI

    On March 30, 2015

  • TIm Ryder says...

    As a piece of potential customer feedback.. I would like to see a small / mobile dock design, as opposed to something large and stationary like your horizontal docks.

    My perfect design would be an enhanced version of Apple’s USB-C charger, with added USB-C hub functionality (total of 3 USB-C ports would do it). The charger/hub would let me charge my MacBook, while also connecting to a Display (via USB-C to DP cable), and an additional peripheral.

    If you offer something like – I will be your immediate customer :)
