    Decided to purchase the Twelve South HiRise stand for my iPhone 6.

    Must say I'm very impressed with it, it's well designed, solidly made and also made to adjust well to different cases. It comes in pieces and you run your Lightning Lead through it and it's held together with hex screws (hex key included).

    If anyone is considering a stand I'd recommend this, looks very smart on its own or spot on alongside an iMac or MacBook.

    I would say my only gripe is that it's not cheap but I think the looks and build quality reflect that.

    I've had one for a while and I love it! It works great for my iPhone 6 and my iPad Mini too!

    I'm very tempted to get one for my Mini 2 but I don't think it will work with the Lifeproof case because of the flap over the charging docket and how it hinges. :(

    Are you able to remove your iPhone from the stand without holding down the stand?

    With a wiggle you could but it's not that heavy really.

    I usually press my pinky finger against the base of the stand while I pull the phone up.

    Thanks for the info! I think I might try this stand with 3m double sided tape.

    It should come with the Lightning cable built in. I may still get one.

    That might work. There's a good bit of room on the back of the base so I guess you could fit a paperweight or something similar on the back to keep it weighted down.

    Yeah it would be nice if the cable was included although I suspect that would push the rice up further.



    That would definitely work or Velcro tabs as well.

    I'd have done the same if it was on a desk but it's on an oak bedside table so has to have a bare butt!

    Do you have any pics with your iPhone 6/6 Plus on the stand?

    Great stand. Had mine for the past 2 years. Used it for my 5, 5S, and now 6. Also use my iPad mini on it as well. Great product.

    Good idea, I have plenty of Velcro tabs/sheets already.

    Do you use a case with you phone or no? Been thinking about getting this too but not sure if it'll work with my case.

    It should work with almost all cases. It comes with 3 different attachments that allow different size cases to fit.

    It does work with most cases. I have the Griffin Reveal, but it can work with much larger cases.

    Twelve South HiRise


    I do indeed use a case, an X-Doria Defence 360 which is a very slim case so the positions of the stand are adjusted to that.

    If you had a thicker, more protective case you can use different parts supplied that allow the lead to protrude more to accommodate the thickness of the case.

    Plus the support at the back can be undone and slid back to make a gap so again will accommodate a case with a thick back.

    Hopefully that makes sense haha

    Does anyone use one of these for their iPad Mini?

    If so does it seem stable when it's sitting on the stand or is it quite top heavy?

    Thought I'd ask rather than play about adjusting the stand or taking mine out of it's Lifeproof case (which is fiddly!).

    If you could get suction cups to stick on the bottom that might be another solution.

    Well, must say, this is a pretty sweet little stand. Got the black one to match my phone and it looks pretty sweet. Only thing I have an issue with is that this thing is pretty easy to scratch/ding. Already got one tiny one on it :mad:
    That said, great little addition for my nightstand.

    Definately an awesome stand, Ive used it with my 5S/6 and iPad 4/Air, all works well, the ipad isnt super stable, but thats to be expected because of the size. I initially bought it in order to have a stand which worked with the Apple leather case, now with the open bottom of the iPhone 6 case I had to re-adjust it to fit perfectly, no problem at all. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a good looking a versatile and good looking dock/stand :cool:

    Also I find I use the back of the stand to push against when taking the phone off, so you push the stand down with one finger so it doesn't move anyway :)
