    Beautiful form, solid function.

    • Written by from BAIE-DURFE

    Twelve South live up to their reputation for quality and practicality with another well designed solution. My concern about other docks (Apple's included) is that all the strain to support the device is transferred to the Lightning connector socket inside the iPhone or iPad, increasing wear and tear on a critical part of an expensive product. This dock provides support with an adjustable backrest (it accommodates any iPhone case, thick or thin) and this eliminates the strain on the iPhone's Lightning socket: most of us know how a simple loose connection effectively writes-off all the technology behind it!. The stand also provides good support for the additional strain when tapping an app or dialling a number.

    The engineering is beefy enough that I was able to adapt my second stand to suit the setup of my standing desk, something that a less substantial product would not have allowed. Highly recommended.

    Fantastic Docking Solution!

    • Written by from CROYDON

    The Twelve South HiRise Stand is an awesome dock for my iPhone and iPad mini. I generally use it for my iPhone because it sits next to my bed and it is awesome. it leaves the phone and cable out of the way and showcases your iPhone very well. In addition thanks to Siri waking up in the mornings and setting alarms the night before is so much easier. Instead of having to lean over to the phone on the cable I can Just say "Hey Siri." and it is perfect.

    Word of advice though, get a longer 2M lighting cable.

    Sloppy manufacturing means this product does not assemble as shown

    • Written by from Manchester

    Prepare for disappointment — the reality of this product is a long way from that advertised on the website.

    Ignoring the needlessly fiddly assembly required, it turns out that the two metal 'bars' that raise the Lightning connector and support the back of the iPhone are not parallel when the product is assembled — unlike the product image shown here.

    It appears that this is due to shoddy manufacturing by TwelveSouth (cost cutting, perhaps?), which has resulted in the chamfer angle on the two pieces not being the same!! Basic geometry tells us that the resulting two pieces can never be parallel! On the particular product I received, rather than being parallel as shown on the box (and on this and TwelveSouth's website), the two pieces converge — like the angled sides of a capital letter 'A'. I guess some poor customers may have received versions of this product in which the two pieces diverge — like a letter 'V'!!

    There is NO EXCUSE for this, which sadly evidences an unacceptable inattention to manufacturing quality at TwelveSouth.
    I will not be purchasing anything further from this third-rate company.

    Waste of money

    • Written by from Cooper City

    Recently ordered this product and was disappointed. Set-up required some dexterity - construction was not very sturdy and the worst part was it doesn't work well with the 2 meter lightning cord (doesn't fit well in the bottom groove). I'd like to send it back. It feels like a kid's toy.

    Works with 6+ iphone

    • Written by from los angeles

    Very well made, it does require assembly for those of you who are not mechanically inclined, read the instructions first! i do recomend that u test the clips before assembly, it took me about 15 minutes to assemble, but i have a little common sense. it really fits like a glove and the backing is full adjustable so if you have a case can leave it on and still charge you phone. it does not include the cable so u will have to buy a cable of your choice! if you have any doubts look at the video before u assemble the item.

    I almost never take the time out of my day to write a review but after I received my dock & I read all the negative reviews about ppl complaining about four screws, I had to write something and I'll tell you it looks awesome. It took me 5 minutes to assemble, hooked up the phone & looks awesome anywhere you place it. Don't think twice about purchasing this dock, you won't regret it.

    Going Back!

    • Written by from Edmond

    First of all, this has to be assembled. It isn't hard to do but it isn't easy either! I have had this for about 2 weeks and this morning the end of the charger snapped off and stayed in my phone. I don't like the way the product is engineered. Thankfully I was able to get the end of the cable out of my iPhone 6 plus but beware. If you get this, you need to pull your phone straight out of the dock and not wiggle it. Like I said, just not engineered well in my opinion. I am on the lookout for an alternative.

    Beware Assembly Required

    • Written by from Coconut Creek

    Assembly is difficult for a person with fat fingers and poor eyesight. Watched video of assembly and it was still difficult. Which lightning clip to use for 6 Plus phone with Apple case not indicated. Would not buy again.

    High praise for HiRise

    • Written by from Mt Pleasant

    This dock is exactly what I was hoping for to keep my iPhone 6 Plus charged and "in sight" on my desk at work. With the HiRise, my phone doesn't get buried and I can easily see incoming calls and texts. The stand feels like an Apple product with sleek lines and tightly fitting parts. It requires simple assembly with the Allen wrench included. Using an Apple cord, it all went together perfectly. It can be adjusted to fit any case which makes it fairly unique. Best of all, it holds my large phone securely. It does take two hands to remove the phone from the stand but that should not be an issue for most people. I plan to order another HiRise for my night stand !

    Great Product

    • Written by from WIMBORNE

    This is a great product, and works perfectly with my iPhone 6 Plus. Easy to assemble, although no assembly required would make it perfect :p not tried using it with my phone in a case, however it does appear that it would still work perfectly with one on as the stand is adjustable. Highly recommended product.

    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!

    • Written by from Toowoomba

    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.
