Twelve South today announced the launch of a revamped HiRise, its popular stand for the iPhone and the iPad. The HiRise 2 features an all new design with with a smaller overall footprint but a heavier overall body, so it's better able to hold up larger devices like the 9.7-inch iPad Pro.

Due to its small size, it's not recommended for the 12.9-inch iPad Pro, but it works with all other Lightning-based devices, including Apple's new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. It charges all kinds of Apple devices, like the Magic Mouse, the Apple Remote, and even the upcoming AirPods (through the included case).

Along with a new design, the HiRise 2 comes in two new colors, a matte black to match the new "Black" iPhone and a matte white shade.

The basic HiRise 2 is priced at $39.99 and is available in black or silver, and users must provide their own Lightning cables. The HiRise 2 Deluxe is available in black, silver, or white for $59.99 and ships with both an MFi-certified Lightning cable and a micro-USB cable so either iOS devices or devices that require a USB cable (including many iOS device battery cases) can be charged.

The HiRise 2 is available from the Twelve South website starting today.

Solution: An iPhone 6S
I think you misunderstand. A lot of people like docks that have headphone adapters built-in. Apple's dock is one such device. You leave it plugged in to the back and it's easy to just pop your device on and listen. Doesn't really have anything to do with the iPhone 7 as people have been doing this for many years.

As for this dock, I sometimes feel like I'm the only one who thinks this design is stupid. I've never understood why someone would want to put their iPhone higher up on a pedestal where it is more prone to being knocked over. Visually, I think it looks kinda clunky and unbalanced when it has a device on top.

If they had put a headphone jack into the stand, this would have been an insta-buy for me. I love Twelve South's products, but I'd need a jack in order for the stand to work for my desk situation. Hoping another third-party comes out with a more substantial alternative to the official Apple Dock soon!

I am all on board with this. I have been searching the past few days for a dock with a 3.5mm Audio out besides Apple's own (nervous about durability of that small Lightning port with a massive 7+ and a case).

I guess I just can't picture how it would work, but how can one charge the Magic Mouse? Is the back support plate removable? Because isn't the lightning port of the MM inexplicably on the bottom?
You are exactly right - the back support post is removable and you can charge your Magic Mouse. Attached is a photo of this working on the original HiRise but the process would be the same for the new HiRise 2.
