    Best stand out there

    Beautiful but tricky to assemble.

    • Written by from Santa Clara

    This is a typically fantastic product from Twelve South. Docking with the Apple Lightning cable is elegant and easy, and the speaker, mic, and headphone ports are all left completely exposed. The phone is held at just enough of an angle, over an aluminum baseplate, to nicely enhance the speakerphone sound via acoustic reflection. The thought and design in Twelve South's work really shows, and the end result -- once this product is fully assembled -- is almost worthy of Apple's own design work.

    That's the catch, however. The last stage of the manufacturing process -- assembly -- is left to the buyer. This makes sense, since it's a single product that's designed to accommodate almost any iPhone case. However, getting the alignment right, finding the proper spacing to hold the iPhone at the same angle as the dock support, keeping the left and right sides of the rear support post aligned while screwing it together, and even screwing in the extremely fine-threaded screws (which strip very easily with surprisingly little exertion) is extremely tricky. I had to make several attempts and ended up using a small hex wrench and piece of cardboard between the posts to keep them aligned while screwing everything together. The threads in one side of the support base became stripped in the process, but it seems to be stable with only three screws properly in place.

    Fortunately, now that it's done, I won't have to make any changes unless/until I change my iPhone case to something thicker or thinner. But I can't recommend this for anyone who doesn't have the patience, dexterity, or determination to assemble the product themselves.

    Great stand!

    • Written by from Lakewood

    If you are looking for a quality iPhone stand for your desk this is the one! The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five was because it was somewhat challenging to assemble, but at the end of the day it's a great stand. (it works for the iPhone 6/ Plus)

    Works good, a hassle to assemble perfectly

    • Written by from Woodway

    Not a bad product once you get it fully assembled. I almost was about to take this back to the Apple Store after I tried putting it back together. If you are bad at assembling products, I would not recommend this.

    Perfect for home and work

    • Written by from richmond

    Just writing in a review because I am about to buy my second one of these. I currently have one next to my bed for my iPhone5, I have been using it for about 6 months now and it has been perfect. Today I am buying one for my work as well,so I have somewhere to put my phone whilst at work which is out of the way on my desk yet clearly visible near me.

    It was a little fiddly to get set up but once you have it set you don't need to worry about it again.

    Amazing product & amazing customer service

    • Written by from HARROGATE

    Bought this stand for my iPhone 5s and it is amazing. Sturdy and fitted perfectly even in a case. I just upgraded to an iPhone 6 and want to keep using it. However I lost the spare adaptor I need for a phone without a case (or in my case in a slim Apple case). Emailed Twelve South in the US to ask where I can buy spares - within a few hours they had sent me spares free of charge! Amazing customer service & amazing product. A must buy, very satisfied.

    Outstanding product

    • Written by from Hamburg

    After much searching both online and at local retail stores and comparing products I purchased a pair of these stands for my wife and I to use for our respective iPhones on our nightstands. We have 6 plus and 5 models both with cases.

    These docks are handsomely packaged as befitting the use with an Apple product as well as well designed and engineered. Great assembly directions and everything needed for assembly and adjustment.

    Couldn't be more happy with these docks!!

    I do not recommend the Twelve south HiRise Stand

    • Written by from Toronto

    1. Once set up it looks not bad and is functional
    1. You have to bolt in you own cable. Other stands I have had, you just plug in a cable. If you want your cable for some other use, you can unplug it. With this unit, you cannot remove your cable unless you dismantle the entire thing.
    2. It says its adjustable but, realistically, it is put together with screws. So you cannot easily adjust it after the initial set up (to use with a different case or device, for example).
    3. You have to feed a cable though a little hole. It only worked on my new iPhone 6's cable, but did not work with my thunderbolt adapter for my older cables since the thunderbolt part is slightly fatter on the adapter.
    4. This is a smaller issue but I will say it anyway, it has a rather wide footprint on my desk.

    Overall, if you have cables to spare, maybe this is not such a bad unit, but I do not recommend it.

    I bought this for my iPhone 6 Plus and it fits perfectly. Please note, you must assemble it and provide your own lightning cord (as stated in the description). The cord becomes fixed and the stand becomes a dock for charging your phone. Assembling it yourself enables you to totally customize it to fit your phone with the cover on or without a cover. Included are 3 sleeves that allow you to adjust for the thickness of your cover (or no cover) at the bottom where it plugs into your phone and the back support plate slides to adjust for the thickness of your cover. They provide an instruction booklet and a link to a video to demonstrate how to put it together. I am extremely pleased with my purchase!

    Very flexible dock unit with easy adjustment

    • Written by from CRAMLINGTON

    This is a slick and stylish stand that is close to what I would imagine Sir Jonny himself would do if Apple designed a dock.

    Uses the Apple Lightning cable supplied with your i-device to clip into a vertical holder with different clips to allow for 3rd party cases. The i-device, iPad or iPhone, sits on this and is supported by an adjustable back plate which simply uses 2 allen key screws to move back or forwards to the ideal position to support your device.

    It should work with most cases and if the i-device changes design should continue to work with adjustment unless the lightning connector is changed. Easy to remove an iPhone with one hand it will support iPhone 6, 6+, 5 or 5s. I have not used it with my iPad but it certainly would also work well with that.

    Even the bottom plate is well designed covering the non-slip surface has a clip to hold the allen key so it doesn't get lost.

    Good build quality and nice clean lines....will be considering a 2nd one for my iPad at some time.

    Works beautifully with my iPhone 6 plus

    • Written by from Perth

    This works fine, everything is adjustable, so even if you think your case maybe too thick it probably isn't. This thing is designed to use your existing cable and it is advertised to go through even an Otterbox Defender case to get that lightning cable snug into the port. The extra bonus is that since you will be using your genuine apple cable it will work with your phone without those annoying messages stating "this accessory is not designed"

    I am using a Pelican Voyager case which I find perfect for my needs. It is well designed and I feel my phone is well protected in it. Definitely a keeper and more managable than the Otterbox Defender I usually purchase for my cell phones.:

    The actual stand is metal and quite heavy and sturdy: my iphone6 plus does not tip over - not even close. I brought a silver one and then after using it for a week I ordered a black one for my bedroom. Note this is a stand/charger, not a media dock although you can quite easily plug your media/speakers into the headphone jack while this is charging and push your music out to your favourite hi-fi system if you wish.

    I'm glad I ordered one and give it 5 stars.

    An accident waiting to happen

    • Written by from Carlisle

    Good points
    1 It looks ok
    Bad points
    1 Setup is a nightmare. Took ages to position the back support correctly. Screws are fiddly.
    2 You lose the use of your lightning connector as it effectively becomes part of the stand.
    3 It's only held in place by the width of the lightning connector. So if you knock it by mistake you may well damage your phone as it'll probably pop off and may well break the connector or worse.
    4 As the connection between phone and stand is so flimsy, I wouldn't advise using the phone on the stand.
    5 It only works in the upright position, which means it's useless for watching films; one of the main uses of such a stand.

    Overall, a good idea very poorly executed.

    Bought Two

    • Written by from Tunbridge Wells

    Works very well with IPhone 6 Plus. One by bed turns it into excellent alarm clock at night; other on desk beside computer.

    It is excellent minimalist design - v tidy. I like them more than the stands that obscure the iPhone by having the phone sit within it.

    Unusable, impractical, junk

    • Written by from Wheatley

    Bought this for my bedside stand instead of the standard holder, and I regret it. My phone (iPhone 5s) perches awkwardly, you have to take the stand apart to modify the stand element if you want to put your iPad mini on it instead, and when the stand moves the plastic bottom that holds the wire neatly in pops off and the stand becomes more unstable (and untidy) still. Finally, it is so light-weight that when you pick your iPhone off the stand, the whole stand comes with your phone - so you need two hands and a wrenching action to detach your phone to take it away. In short, style, but zero ergonomics.

    Great mount / Stand for iphone 5 / 6 and other lightning products.

    • Written by from Craigieburn

    I have had this for 12 months ( bought directly from 12 south) and Love it. I use it day in, day out while at work to charge my phone and ipad. It is the perfect height to let you see if calls come in while on silent as it sits just under my monitor...

    Beautifully crafted, stylish and practical. Also fits iPhone 6.

    • Written by from Holywood

    After looking for a dock to replace my standard, white Apple 30-pin dock, I saw this on the Apple website. As well as being very nice to look at (and touch, with a cold, heavy 'premium feel'), this is very nicely made and easy to assemble. The different clips and adjustable rear support mean it will fit a variety of devices, either cased or naked. There are several vastly-inferior alternative docks that are only slightly lower-priced. This isn't so much a gadget as a small piece of furniture. Very Apple-esque and highly recommended.
