    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+

    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.

    This is an AWESOME product. You can charge your iPad or iPhone WITH your case. No need to remove it. I've bought 2 of these. GREAT PRODUCT!

    Good Little Package

    • Written by from Buntingford

    Bought this after buying an iMac to be able to charge/sync my iPhone 5s. It is easy to set up and has a 3 different case adapters to affix. Given 5 stars as it sturdy, holds the phone at an ergonomic angle and is made of aluminium (apart from a panel on the underside of the base which can fall off but it does hold the included alan key so that adjustments can be made any time). YOU DO NEED YOUR OWN CABLE.

    Best Stand Ever

    • Written by from Las Vegas

    This is a really great stand! I have many cases that I switch between and the stand fits all of them. The design if the stand is also very stylish and fits the "apple aesthetic." Highly recommend.

    Not as simple as it seems

    • Written by from Sydney

    It comes in a few parts with tine screws not built for big hands.

    AFter putting it together (jeez those tiny screws hated the big fingers), I have an iPhone 5S with an STM case, and an iPad Mini with a case ... the only problem being that both do not fit the same spacer connector, so it really only is built for one or the other

    Great stand but assembly wasn't easy and it is a bit pricey

    • Written by from Santee

    I needed a charging stand to fit into a very specific space and this design was perfect - it fits in a small space and charges my iPhone5 great. And it can be adjusted for several cases - big +. In reading the negative reviews, I expected a flimsy plastic base but was pleasantly surprised; the base is much stronger than reported. What was accurate was the difficulty in putting it together. I am very good with tools - can usually put anything together without too much trouble. But I struggled with these little screws (therefore the 3 out of 5 stars). And the fact I thought it was too pricey. I had an Apple gift card and would not have paid this much otherwise.
    So, if you have trouble putting little screws in difficult-to-center little holes, make sure you have someone who can help you. And rest assured, you will drop one of the little screws on the door at least once while putting together. Bring your patience to this project.

    Simple & Effective - Works with iPad Air

    • Written by from Payneham

    I mainly bought this for my iPad Air. Even though it says its made for the iPad Mini, the iPad Air still fits fine. While the iPhone fits perfectly, the Air fits too, but just not as secure. All in all pretty nice stand.

    Best Dock Ever

    • Written by from San Diego

    I absolutely love this docking station. I use it at work and it allows me to have the iphone docked and plug in my headphones to listen while I work. What makes it different from other docking stations with a headphone jack is that I can simply pull the phone off the dock and walk away without having to unplug my headphones from the dock, like other designs. Its absolutely brilliant! And it works with so many different iPhone cases! I hope this review really helps you to decide to spend the money on this dock and don't buy a cheap dock just to save money. You will end up buying something like this in the long run.

    Everything excellent apart from the price

    • Written by from Bury St Edmunds

    Smart, elegant, well-made, easy to assemble, probably the best charger dock on the market. I use with the official Apple leather case for iPhone 5S with the second of the clips for a perfect fit. The only downside of this product is the price. In my opinion, it should include an official apple cable for the price, hence 4 stars instead of 5. Excellent, quality product though.

    Amazing Product!

    • Written by from Bradenton

    I received a $50 Apple Store gift card for Christmas and had just about no ideas about what I wanted to buy. I browsed Apple's iPhone accessories because I figured I could get something really nice for my 5s. As soon as I saw this product, I immediately wanted it. And how perfect. It also would support my iPad mini. The installation of this product isn't very easy, but the final product is worth it. I first placed it on my desk for about 5 months, and then decided to move it to my nightstand. I love it! It is much nicer to have my phone standing up on my nightstand instead of laying flat while charging. Especially because I play a lot of music at night and like to change a song every so often, I don't have to pick my phone up to see the screen. I definitely recommend this product to any iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s or iPad mini owner. I forgot to mention that this stand is also very adaptable to cases*, but you must adjust it during installation. You can make adjustments later if you get a different case.
    *Not compatible with Otterbox Defender for iPad mini.

    Fantastic little stand, works with iPhone 5 in a grove bamboo case and iPad Air seems ok on it as well.

    Not a fan. Inhibits incoming calls

    • Written by from Leesburg

    Of course I love the form factor on this product, but the number one reason I can't use it: its aluminum construction seems to block incoming calls. I will randomly get voicemail alerts within 30-60 seconds of pulling my iPhone off the stand.

    iPhone on the stand: 1 reception bar and no incoming calls. iPhone off the stand (and just laying on my desk): 3-4 reception bars and incoming calls come through just fine.

    Can it be used with the iphone case on.

    • Written by from MOSMAN PARK

    I have purchased many docking stations before, to find I needed to remove the case off to charge. I currently have a clear thin case, yet I do not want to remove it very time I want to dock my phone. Cn you advise if this is the case.

    Be careful -- doesn't work with 6' APPLE cable

    • Written by from Vancouver

    I laid out $35 for Apple's own 6' foot cable because they said this works "exclusively with the Apple Lightning cable". What they don't tell you is that it only works with the 3' cable!! The 3' cable is a little skinnier and the tolerances on this stand are incredibly tight.

    By using a bigger hammer I got it put together -- but assembly is not for the fainthearted.

    And, like several of the other reviewers have noted, it really is a little tippy for my iPad Mini.
