If you’ve been looking for a beautiful and versatile stand for iOS devices, check out my review of the Twelve South HiRise for iPhone 5 and iPad mini. This is an all aluminum stand that can be adjust to fit many different cases and it perfectly matches any existing Apple products you may have. Check out my video review above for a closer hands-on look at the new HiRise Stand.
As I mentioned, this stand is constructed using the same kind of aluminum that Apple uses. It has the same color and tone, and in my opinion, is the best looking iPhone/iPad mini stand I’ve seen yet. The best part is, HiRise for iPhone is completely adjustable and will allow you to use it with most cases. See the above video for more details.
The only thing I can possibly see as a downside is that you’re going to need to use your own Lightning cable with this stand. Because it’s so versatile, it requires that you install an Apple Lightning cable (which you’ll need to provide.) So if you’re not comfortable using your only cable with HiRise, you’ll need to buy an extra one or look elsewhere.
The bottom line: This stand is not only a beauty, but it’s also very functional. It can hold and iPhone, iPad mini, iPod touch, or iPod nano and works with a wide variety of cases. It’s also quite affordable. Twelve South’s HiRise for iPhone and iPad mini is currently available for $34.99 on Amazon or directly through the company’s website.[xrr rating=5/5]
