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

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.

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
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 i 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. …
