    Does not work with a Life proof case

    • Written by from Nutley

    Hated it and returning it. Hard to assemble and difficult to use with a 2m cord. Finally get it together and it doesn't with a life proof case.

    Very disappointing

    • Written by from Seattle

    It took an hour to assemble because of multiple parts and tiny, difficult to manipulate screws. When assembly is complete it is unstable, the phone cannot be removed with one hand; and the entire gadget is light and flimsy. It does not sit well on a flat surface. I am returning it, and recommend others do not buy it. I would not use it for a 20 dollar flip phone, let alone an expensive i6

    Beautiful form, solid function.

    • Written by from BAIE-DURFE

    Twelve South live up to their reputation for quality and practicality with another well designed solution. My concern about other docks (Apple's included) is that all the strain to support the device is transferred to the Lightning connector socket inside the iPhone or iPad, increasing wear and tear on a critical part of an expensive product. This dock provides support with an adjustable backrest (it accommodates any iPhone case, thick or thin) and this eliminates the strain on the iPhone's Lightning socket: most of us know how a simple loose connection effectively writes-off all the technology behind it!. The stand also provides good support for the additional strain when tapping an app or dialling a number.

    The engineering is beefy enough that I was able to adapt my second stand to suit the setup of my standing desk, something that a less substantial product would not have allowed. Highly recommended.

    Waste of money

    • Written by from Cooper City

    Recently ordered this product and was disappointed. Set-up required some dexterity - construction was not very sturdy and the worst part was it doesn't work well with the 2 meter lightning cord (doesn't fit well in the bottom groove). I'd like to send it back. It feels like a kid's toy.

    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.

    I almost never take the time out of my day to write a review but after I received my dock & I read all the negative reviews about ppl complaining about four screws, I had to write something and I'll tell you it looks awesome. It took me 5 minutes to assemble, hooked up the phone & looks awesome anywhere you place it. Don't think twice about purchasing this dock, you won't regret it.

    Going Back!

    • Written by from Edmond

    First of all, this has to be assembled. It isn't hard to do but it isn't easy either! I have had this for about 2 weeks and this morning the end of the charger snapped off and stayed in my phone. I don't like the way the product is engineered. Thankfully I was able to get the end of the cable out of my iPhone 6 plus but beware. If you get this, you need to pull your phone straight out of the dock and not wiggle it. Like I said, just not engineered well in my opinion. I am on the lookout for an alternative.

    This item is wonderful and also very nice looking. It is perfect for bedside, desk or anywhere you may need it. Best dock out there. Buy it here, sellers on eBay have it priced way too high!

    Beware Assembly Required

    • Written by from Coconut Creek

    Assembly is difficult for a person with fat fingers and poor eyesight. Watched video of assembly and it was still difficult. Which lightning clip to use for 6 Plus phone with Apple case not indicated. Would not buy again.

    High praise for HiRise

    • Written by from Mt Pleasant

    This dock is exactly what I was hoping for to keep my iPhone 6 Plus charged and "in sight" on my desk at work. With the HiRise, my phone doesn't get buried and I can easily see incoming calls and texts. The stand feels like an Apple product with sleek lines and tightly fitting parts. It requires simple assembly with the Allen wrench included. Using an Apple cord, it all went together perfectly. It can be adjusted to fit any case which makes it fairly unique. Best of all, it holds my large phone securely. It does take two hands to remove the phone from the stand but that should not be an issue for most people. I plan to order another HiRise for my night stand !

    Not worth it.

    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.

    practical and pretty

    • Written by from Grand Bay-Westfield

    I have 2. My Bride and I have cases on our iPhones and with other products you had to remove the case or, as I had been doing, leave a cable on the night tables or dresser to charge our phones. The Twelve South HiRise makes it easy just to drop the phones in so we now have his and hers. My wish list would be a redesign that would let me charge an iPad air and an iPhone. Once again, his and hers would be necessary. Nicely done Twelve South.

    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!

    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.

    Very high quality and great product

    • Written by from Cornville

    Extremely helpful for using the 6 plus at my desk. This is extremely high quality, even little things like how the cable exits the device. Very stable, perfect height, let's me keep my ear phones plugged in, and works with any case. I am totally impressed with this product. They spent a huge amount of time on the details of the design. Everyone who buys this will be impressed. Also the packaging is over the top. Nice job 12 South!!!!

    Functional and Attractive

    • Written by from Provincetown

    After originally buying this stand as a gift for my partner, I loved it and bought one for myself. If you follow the instructions, it is relatively easy to put together. The stand looks great on my desk and is very functional for taking/making calls, text messages and Facetime. The elevation allows the speaker and mic to remain unobstructed like they are with many other docks. I like that the hex wrench stays stored in the base so that if I ever change cases, I can adjust easily adjust the stand if necessary. Overall, very pleased with the ease of use and aesthetic of the HiRise.

    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.

    This dock is shipped to you in several pieces. You must assemble the dock with screws and wrenches before you can use it. Furthermore, the dock is completely useless if you don't have your own cable which is not obvious from the description. Not just that, without the cable you can't use the dock because the end of the cable pushes through the dock to support the device. The concept is ok and the design is ok but the execution is completely flawed. For the combined price of the dock and cable, I think I'll get a mophie dock. Finally, there is a plastic panel that snaps onto the bottom to hide the cables and allow the dock to sit flat. This panel often snaps off.

    one flaw

    • Written by from Valley stream

    love it. the best dock i have owned. only thing is since it uses your existing cable, the up and down function of taking my phone off of the base many times has broken the tip of my lightning cable. i now have to replace the cable.
