Twelve South Releases Adjustable HiRise Stand for iPhone 5 and iPad Mini

Twelve South today unveiled a new adjustable pedestal stand designed to work with both Apple’s iPhone 5 and the iPad mini. Made from brushed metal to match other Apple/Mac accessories, the HiRise is designed to work with a Lightning cable and nearly any iPhone or iPad mini case.

hirise
Place HiRise in your workspace to charge while your hands are free during calls and FaceTime chats.

Unlike most other docks, HiRise doesn’t block your speakers, mic or headphone ports. This vertical pedestal is small and beautiful enough to use anywhere in your home or office. It’s the ultimate perch for keeping your iPhone 5 or iPad mini fully charged and ready to go.
According to Twelve South, the stand works with a wide variety of popular cases, from Otterbox to Speck to the company’s own BookBook. The rear support on the HiRise can slide back and forth and multiple height clips for the Lightning cable allow it to accommodate the majority of cases. With standard docks and stands, device cases often have to be removed.

The HiRise stand can be purchased from the Twelve South website for $34.99.

Would you make one of these for $20? If so, I may have a job for you. ...because if I went downstairs to our machine shop and told them to make me 1000 of these, they'd cost over $100 a piece just to produce, and that's before marketing & advertising costs.

If $35 is exorbitant, but $20 is acceptable, you're arguing over $15. You blow more than that rounding off lunch tips in a week. Suck it up.

...If they set msrp at $20 you'd just complain it should have been $10. But it's understandable. To people who don't value craftsmanship & manufacturing, and have been told for a couple generations that such work is beneath them, nothing is worth anything, and few have any idea what it actually takes to build a product and bring it to market anymore. Everything should just be free.

Too right. The current examples in China make it a no-brainer now.

35 for the stand + 19 for another cable because your not going to want to disassemble it everytime you need to go somewhere = 55 plus tax.

screw that. I got a better solution.

I guess I'm in that part of my life where $35 doesn't really hurt my bank account.

I guess I'm the kind of person that would prefer buying something that costs me $35, looks nice and will last ages: vs buying something that will cost me $5 and either last a month, or burn my house down, and it looks dreadful.

I won't comment on the price, but I will say it looks sweet with an iPad Mini!

I love Twelve South stuff. :p Their gear looks like it's designed by Apple themselves, unlike most other stuff on the Apple peripheral market.

It can cope with a case? Well that puts it vastly ages of most Lightning docks so far.

I leave my earphones plugged into my iPhone 5 pretty much at all times, so that dock would be useless to me. And not to mention my phone is in a case, so that dock is still useless to me.

Check out the Kidigi dock, I have one and it works with my case. Also doesn't stand the iPhone ridiculously high up in the air lol.

I like it. Will try and order one in the next few weeks, don't have money to spare since college is starting soon. But I'll save up.

You get what you pay for. And honestly, it's no better time to point this out than right now. People's phones are exploding due to batteries that are NOT tested properly, apparently someone's house caught fire because of one too. And now power adapters are suffering the same faults, and someone died because of it.

Some of you guys are so selfish. You live in a country that forces every manufacture in this country to have everything they sell in stores follow strict rules in order to protect consumers. They all come with at least 1-year warranties, and if there is a recall, your replacement is FREE, and that's even if it is 10 years later. Get over yourselves.

I get that most of you people can't afford all the nice things, but just understand this... My parents taught me that it's always good to spend money on something that is really worth it. And that is why we have a kitchen table and a set of pots and pans that are way over 20 years old. And heck, we have boxes of Crayola crayons, markers, and colored pencils that are that old and we still use them.

You cannot afford to keep investing into cheap stuff. It's like renting a house - You're throwing money away. That $5 will end up being $100 out-of-pocket sooner or later.

This stand is future proof. If you're smart enough, you'll figure out ways to make it work with other cables.
