Does the USB port work the same as the lighting port for clock set, sound through the speakers or is it just a charging port?

Son has an iPhone I4 with a case that is a pain to take off, wanting to know if USB replicates the dock ports.

  • The compatibility is very misleading. Yes it will work with I4 but only with the usb port. The lighting docks are for 5th gen or higher only. anything lower will only work with the usb. and the answer about mounting with a case is answered in another post. They must be removed.
