    Not worth it.

    I have an iphone 6 and an ipad mini2. Neither of which seem very stable while plugged. It is wobbly at best and the ipad wont charge 90% of the time. This is going back to the store.

    practical and pretty

    • Written by from Grand Bay-Westfield

    I have 2. My Bride and I have cases on our iPhones and with other products you had to remove the case or, as I had been doing, leave a cable on the night tables or dresser to charge our phones. The Twelve South HiRise makes it easy just to drop the phones in so we now have his and hers. My wish list would be a redesign that would let me charge an iPad air and an iPhone. Once again, his and hers would be necessary. Nicely done Twelve South.

    Excellent!

    Have been using this stand for 4 months now and extremely happy. I use headphones plugged into bottom of phone regularly, this is only stand I could find for this purpose. In addition the speakers are not obstructed so sound clear when occasionally used. Setup looks very professional on desk. I am extremely happy with this product.

    Better buy some tools first or buy a different dock

    • Written by from Cave Creek

    The two vertical columns should be erected parallel. But unfortunately they are not because their downsides are differently angled - severe mistake in manufacturing.

    This means not only you do not have proper support but it looks ugly. I used a metal file to rasp some aluminum off the bottom. Now it looks even uglier but at least it gives support.


    They claim that their product works with "...practically any case on the market...especially cases with recessed connections that no other dock can fit..."

    Well it does not fit my Apple-Store bought case.

    The reason? You must use different plastic clips for different phones/cases and the manufacturer is too cheap to include several of them. They include size 0, 2 and 5 and I would need 3 or 4.

    So I used an electric drill to adjust the clip to my requirements. Without the drilling the iPhone would not even connect electrically and the stand would be completely senseless.

    Buy something else!

    The angles of the 2 bars were unequal.
    Jagged rough cut on end.
    Nice design but poor quality manufacture.
    I have many Twelve South products.
    All are high quality.
    Very surprised Twelve South let this get by.

    Very high quality and great product

    • Written by from Cornville

    Extremely helpful for using the 6 plus at my desk. This is extremely high quality, even little things like how the cable exits the device. Very stable, perfect height, let's me keep my ear phones plugged in, and works with any case. I am totally impressed with this product. They spent a huge amount of time on the details of the design. Everyone who buys this will be impressed. Also the packaging is over the top. Nice job 12 South!!!!

    Functional and Attractive

    • Written by from Provincetown

    After originally buying this stand as a gift for my partner, I loved it and bought one for myself. If you follow the instructions, it is relatively easy to put together. The stand looks great on my desk and is very functional for taking/making calls, text messages and Facetime. The elevation allows the speaker and mic to remain unobstructed like they are with many other docks. I like that the hex wrench stays stored in the base so that if I ever change cases, I can adjust easily adjust the stand if necessary. Overall, very pleased with the ease of use and aesthetic of the HiRise.

    Nice idea, bad quality control

    • Written by from Garner

    Liked the stand overall and it's configuration options. However, one of the screws was so badly deformed that it could not be used, and the angle of the back piece did not match the angle of the front piece making it very difficult to try and adjust. I contacted customer support at Twelve South (with photos) and they wanted me to send the defective stand in (at my cost) and they would send me a replacement within a couple weeks. At no time did they offer to send me some replacement screws or parts. I decided to return the stand and find another option.

    BUYER BEWARE

    • Written by from Saint louis

    This dock is shipped to you in several pieces. You must assemble the dock with screws and wrenches before you can use it. Furthermore, the dock is completely useless if you don't have your own cable which is not obvious from the description. Not just that, without the cable you can't use the dock because the end of the cable pushes through the dock to support the device. The concept is ok and the design is ok but the execution is completely flawed. For the combined price of the dock and cable, I think I'll get a mophie dock. Finally, there is a plastic panel that snaps onto the bottom to hide the cables and allow the dock to sit flat. This panel often snaps off.

    one flaw

    • Written by from Valley stream

    love it. the best dock i have owned. only thing is since it uses your existing cable, the up and down function of taking my phone off of the base many times has broken the tip of my lightning cable. i now have to replace the cable.

    Really good stand

    • Written by from Northampton

    Really good stand for any iPhones or iPads, and of course the iPods, I really like their design to let you use your own cable rather than just bundle one in it makes it really easy to replace one when it's broken (they really hard to break by the way) ),great if you use you iPhone as a hotspot and always need to plug it into your Mac.

    Not for the ipad mini

    • Written by from GAINSBOROUGH

    Bought this for my mini iPad. It is not substantial enough for this piece of equipment, the iPhone maybe? The main (almost sole) connection to the stand is from the Lightning cable connector. Other than that there is around 2 inch x 1/2 inch stand behind it to support. It wobbles when touched and I think is putting much stress on the connectors? Other than that, one of the four screws to assemble it does not tighten. Do not recommend for the mini iPad.

    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.
