    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.

    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 is a typically fantastic product from Twelve South. Docking with the Apple Lightning cable is elegant and easy, and the spea 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.

    If you are looking for a quality iPhone stand for your desk this is the one! The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five If you are looking for a quality iPhone stand for your desk this is the one! The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five was because it was somewhat challenging to assemble, but at the end of the day it's a great stand. (it works for the iPhone 6/ Plus)
