    no cable

    • Written by from Smyrna

    Paying $35 for a dock that you have to put it together and it don't even come with a cable , that to me is like buying a soda without a can, buying a car without a wheel. Is just not a complete product. And I was stupid enough to brought two. The product looks Ok after you spend hour to put it together.

    Good product, but the 2m iPhone lightning cord is an issue….

    • Written by from Marlboro

    Just got two of the longer iPhone 5 lightening cords (2m)…. be aware that while the cord connector itself is the same size, the cord is slightly thicker than the 1m cord…..so is an issue if you use it with 12 South's HiRise Dock for iPhone. I managed to make it work, but have to tape the bottom of the docking station where the cord threads out to keep the cover together. Otherwise, I like this docking station.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Clever product with implementation issues

    • Written by from Fairfax

    The HiRise is a pretty decent product. It has nice weight, and as a machined aluminium product, it fits nicely into Apple's design language. The fact that it only fits Apple Lightning cords (I have a few from Monoprice, and the heads are too wide and cords too thick to fit into the stand opening) is annoying but understandable. There are also a couple of fit-and-finish issues that come from it being a self-assembly product - there are some small gaps where the stand meets the base. But those are trivial issues.

    My biggest issue is the cheap plastic cap on the bottom that holds the hex wrench. The HiRise as a whole feels like a solid product, so to have a thin piece of plastic wedged onto the base that prevents the stand from sitting flat on the desk is a little disconcerting. It feels like an after-thought to an otherwise stellar product.

    On the whole, though, it's a very nice stand.

    Works Great

    • Written by from Vancouver

    Bought it for my new iPhone 5s, if you use case and need a dock this is the best after my research fit great to pretty much all kind of cases with lightning plug, back tall support stand can be adjust too so even iPad with thick cases will work too, built quality is very solid... Well the reason I rated at 4 stars is I wish they charge $10 more and include a lightning cable.

    A little advice to Apple Store I am sure this great product from HiRise will sell way more if you have it in-store than either I have to pay shipping or spend up to $70 dollars to get free shipping well I live 2mins walk to a Apple Store.

    Flimsy & disappointing - don't be fooled by its appearance.

    • Written by from Washington

    This stand looks like it's made of the durable aluminum from Apple products, but in fact feels much cheaper and much much less sturdy. It's also far more cumbersome to assemble than something this small should be. Very disappointing.

    Great Dock

    Not Assenmbled

    • Written by from Weslaco

    I don't think I read in description on how assembly of this item is required, plus you have to provide your own charging cable. Very disappointed in this item. I am not "assembly saavy". I tried assembling but got nowhere. Charging cable did not fit anywhere. Very frustrating. Back it goes.

    Works great with or without a case

    • Written by from Pittsburgh

    The stand is made very well, with aluminum to match Apple products, especially an iMac.

    It was easy to assemble and to use.

    Works great whether you have a case on your phone (2 different adjustment tabs are included for use with thin case or with a thick case) or even if you run a caseless program.

    You need to have a spare Lightning cable to use with this stand.

    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.

    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.

    Compared to other options not bad...

    • Written by from San Carlos

    But, the whole thing is a little iffy to put together, as you have to do a decent amount of fidgety adjustment to custom fit to your phone. Adjustment involving holding two metal pieces at an angle, at a distance, while screwing in hex bolts from the bottom.

    It comes with 3 height options for: phone with no case, phone with medium case, phone with large case. Of course, all 3 cases I had on hand were solidly between the "no case" and medium case" option. So the phone works with the medium case option, but is a bit wobbly.

    All in all, the stand is very light, so required 2 hands to remove the phone, and anytime you move the stand, or pick it up, it's likely the bottom plate will fall out.

    For 35 dollars, best option out there. If you want to spend 95 there are superior heavy weight easily customizable options out there.

    Good product but assembly is not for the faint of heart

    • Written by from Madison

    I'm usually somewhat capable of assembling things, but had moderate difficulty installing 4 small screws with 10 fat fingers and then trying to embed the cable in the track on the bottom.

    Assembly required

    • Written by from Austin

    Bought this for my office desk and was disappointed so I will return it. The first problem was finding 10 pieces that needed to be assembled. I spent 20 minutes trying to get the tiny screws into the base and they were so small that I dropped the parts several times. It felt as though the screws were being stripped so I had to stop. Finally, it doesn't come with a cable- you have to supply it otherwise it doesnt work. Since I just upgraded to the 5S phone I don't yet have spare cables.

    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.

    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.
