    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

    Pros:
    1. Once set up it looks not bad and is functional
    Cons:
    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.

    Perfect!

    • Written by from Dacula

    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.

    Stable, solid, good design. Does what it's supposed to do. However fragile if it were knocked with Iphone in device.

    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

    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...

    I bought this stand for my iPhone 6 and I'm 100% satisfied. The quality is impressive and fit the iPhone with the apple silicone cover perfectly.

    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.

    Perfect for iPhone 6 and 6 plus

    • Written by from Cupertino

    This is hands down the GREATEST dock I have ever had. It is truly simple, yet elegant. The dock is made of high quality aluminum and is beautifully designed. I bought this specifically for my iPhone 6 plus and let me tell you, it is AMAZING. The dock is amazing and compliments the phone beautifully. The silver color is ideal just because it really matches the phone and of course it will match your macbook/mac. It does require some assembly but honestly its 3 steps, no sweat, if you need additional help they have a link to a video installation guide. The packaging has a assembly manual but its so simple to do it without. I am 100% satisfied. Will recommend to others!

    Amazing Product!

    • Written by from Berwick

    Had my Hi-Rise for nearly a year now and it is absolutely perfect. The price is the same as apples own dock which i have previously owned, the Hi-Rise is much nicer to use although it doesn't have the 3.5mm AUX Jack. Overall its a fantastic product and i would not hesitate to buy another.

    Moderate Product-flatters to deceive

    • Written by from LONDON

    Product looks excellent, however the bottom piece that covers the wire in and holds the allen key always falls off when you lift up the piece. most annoyingly, it doesn't hold an iPhone in a case very easily and the lightening connector slips down out of the breach, meaning that you need to open the stand up and re-position the wire. All this means is that the holder is not a very good holder...wish I didn't spend the money on it.

    Awesome stand. The best out.

    • Written by from Miami beach

    Excellent product! Bought this after seeing it on the apple store website. I have had twelve south products before. Magic wand and iMac back pack. There stuff is high quality and aluminum matches apples aluminum. Ive read about people complaining about assembly. Honestly its not that hard at all to assemble. It took me less then five minutes. Holds my iPhone 5s perfect with a case. Also my iPad mini retina with a case. It looks amazing on my desk next to my iMac. Dont let the bad reviews doubt you. This product is great! A+

    Flimsy

    This stand was flimsy and didn't support my mini well at all. I took it straight back to the Apple store for a refund.

    So close...

    • Written by from Brighton

    So overall I like this stand. It looks nice and is minimalist. What I've noticed is that it's not a stand you can still really use the phone while its on. I know it wanst sold as anything but a good looking stand but I'd like to see it with a wider base and back, right now the phone is very wobbly if you like to put your hand around it to respond to a test while it stays not he stand. I don't mean thicker post, they're fine (well maybe it should be wider to support the back more).

    Again, not a deal breaker, I'll keep this one but I wouldn't buy one for my iPad based on how off balanced everything feels. Something to support the far edges would feel great if it could be worked into the design.

    Elegant in its simplicity

    • Written by from Toronto

    All I wanted was a dock that was attractive, and kept my iPhone elevated, and this stand was exactly what I wanted. My iPad mini is surprisingly stable on it as well.

    I was a little surprised it came flat packed like IKEA furniture, but it was quite simple to assemble. Very tempted to buy a second one for my iPad.
