    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.

    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.

    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!

    iPhone 6 Compatible

    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.

    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!

    Solid product

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    I really like the design of this stand, and it's working great for my iPhone. Just ordered a second one for my iPad Air.

    Only problem I had was when assembling it one of the bolts stripped so the stand is a bit wobbly. With the design of this product that actually creates a rather serious problem, as a big feature of this stand is its ability to adjust to different device sizes. But now that the bolt hole is stripped the only way to make it not wobble is to glue it in place. (thus losing the ability to adjust) Hopefully my second one will not have the same bolt issue.

    Not worth it.

    • Written by from Westland

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!!

    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.

    Great for iPad Mini!

    • Written by from Chicago

    Overall a great product! The stand feels very sturdy and was a cinch to assemble. It takes up very little desk space and looks great next to my iMac. I like that you can adjust the stand to fit your device without having to take its case off. One small problem I have is that the removable plastic piece on the bottom that conceals the cable isn't well attached. It falls off almost every time I move the stand. Other than that, no major complaints!
