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.

The most elegant dock out there
This dock is the best looking one available, but it is also probably the most functional. iPhone speakers remain unobstructed, mak 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. …

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...
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 yo 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. …
