    Brilliantly clever product.

    • Written by from Bryan

    Sure, it's just a dock. Fundamentally, its only function is to turn your existing cable up by 100 or so degrees, but this provides a lot of practical convenience, whether on your nightstand for charging, or on a desk for syncing and heads-up display.

    Rather than design just another pretty dock basically impractical for anyone with an iPhone case, TwelveSouth has thoughtfully designed the HiRise to be nearly universally compatible with any case out there by using Apple’s own cable. This isn’t lazy, it’s brilliant. Because of it, this dock will work with almost any case that accepts the tiniest, highest-quality cable out on the market (and everyone already has one!).

    This design choice isn’t the only thing that makes the HiRise great. It is clear from initially opening the box that TwelveSouth has put a tremendous amount of thought and pride into the whole experience. The stand exudes quality, as does even the packaging and assembly instructions. The allen-head cap screws have a secure and organized place in the box, and the allen key has a permanent home inside the base of the dock itself. Every single cleverly-designed step in the unbox & assembly process will bring a little smile to your face. It's reminiscent in this regard of Apple's own products.

    Best part? The Lightning standard is new and expected to be around for a decade. Since this dock is well-designed and adaptable, it should last through many future generations of iPhones. In a market where we too often begrudgingly pay $30-40 for a molded plastic case to be used for a few months or a year before moving on, it is an absolute delight to pay the same for a clever, convenient product that is solid as a rock and will remain useful for many years.

    Works great with iPad Air!!!

    • Written by from Ajax

    I recently upgraded from iPad 3rd generation to iPad air. Apple does not manufacture docks that would be compatible with iPad Air.

    This dock works perfectly with the iPad Air. The base is very stable even when typing on the iPad.

    The most elegant dock out there

    • Written by from TORONTO

    This dock is the best looking one available, but it is also probably the most functional. iPhone speakers remain unobstructed, making your phone work perfectly on your desk with the internal iPhone speaker on. I was leery of the claims that you can easily remove the phone with one hand, but once you get the hang of it, yes it is as easy as you could wish in such a sleek design. Only downside: assembly is at best awkward. Big caveat: Do not use the 2 meter lightning cable that Apple recently introduced! It's too thick, and nothing will work properly when you put the gadget together. The company was extremely helpful in sorting out my problems. This dock is worth every penny.

    Excellent product

    • Written by from Sayville

    Well designed and well made. Unboxing this stand was almost as fun as unboxing my 5S. Machine threaded hex bolts with included allen wrench. Most important: the lightning connector comes with different lengths to accommodate phones or iPads in cases. Also, the "arm" that the device rests on is adjustable (width) to accommodate cases as well. Better design than the Apple dock connector. Just remember it doesn't come with the lightning cable.

    This is the defacto stand for iPhone 5

    • Written by from Roebuck

    From it's sharp presentation of the iPhone to the accommodations of cased devices to the sturdiness it provides, this is a simple yet elegant stand that achieves perfection. A moderate effort to assemble, HiRise Stand nonetheless is worth the effort which is quickly justified once you start to use the stand. I was pleasantly surprised at how firm the non-slip feature was of such an elevated stand...it never feels like it will tip over. But it's biggest attribute is its ability to mount any iPhone's case...something even Apple's dock prevents with Apple's case.

    Gorgeously Minimalistic

    • Written by from Tracy

    Works great with my iPhone 5 and iPad Mini Retina with SmartCase. It's just mildly annoying that assembly is required but because of the different types of cases the stand works with, you are given a choice of 3 lightning "clips". The flexibility and elegance of the stand more than makes up the ten minutes it took to put together.

    It is a great dock. I use it for my iPad Air and my iPhone 5S. By the way, it works even with smart cases or covers.

    Brilliant Design

    • Written by from Calgary

    I have a number of 12South products and they are all beautifully designed and well built.
    This stand is pleasing to the eye, a breeze to install and very sturdy. The solid aluminium base is weighty enough to not skid around your desk when you press the home button on your phone. It has adapters to suit most cases and it sits up at an angle on your desk that makes it very functional. I use it with the Logitech Bluetooth Easy Switch K811 keyboard to quickly shft between my Macbook, my iPad3 and my iPhone5.

    Perfect !!!

    • Written by from Uniontown

    Ignore the negative comments about the assembly, 4 screws a couple of turns and your done. My iPhone 5 and my iPad mini fit it perfectly without any adjustments. I bought it because I wanted a docking base so I could use my phone as a bedside clock/alarm…It's perfect for the job...

    Absolute Best Dock for iPhone/iPad Mini

    • Written by from ORLANDO

    This is the best dock for the iPhone since you don't need to take it out of the case. This dock works with any iPhone and the materials used compliment your other apple items. when you change your case, the dock is adjustable to adapt to it. I highly recommend this dock over Apple's own dock. Apple sells hundreds of cases in their own store for the iPhone and the majority of iPhone users use a case to protect it, BUT their own dock won't even support a case. Obviously sir Jony didn't think of the practicality of that when they designed Apple's Dock. Fortunately the people at 12 South understand that the common people have cases and their dock is simply a Brilliant way to charge your device.

    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!

    Best Stand Ever

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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+
