Twelve South today launched the new HoverBar Duo, an adjustable stand that securely holds the iPad or iPhone, priced at $79.99. The accessory has dual functionality: it can sit on a desk as a weighted stand, or you can attach it to a shelf with the included shelf clamp.

12s HoverbarDuo LS3 HiRes
Compatible iPads include all generations of the ‌iPad‌, iPad Air, iPad Pro, and iPad mini, as well as any ‌iPhone‌. The HoverBar Duo features an adjustable clamp design, with arms that stretch to fit any ‌iPad‌ or ‌iPhone‌.

Twelve South is pitching the accessory as both a work companion for drawing with an Apple Pencil on the ‌iPad‌ or taking Zoom calls, as well as a way to easily read recipes in the kitchen.

I think twelvesouth's stuff is very expensive...

...but nothing makes me want to try this stand like looking at the selection of ugly and poorly designed ones on Amazon, many of which are 1/2 the price but 3x as terrible.

It would have been worth the price tag if it uses the smart connector to charge the iPad.

Honestly don't see anything special about this one. Similar item on Amazon as cheap as $15. What justify for the $80 price?
Can you link to the similar $15 Amazon item? I could use one of these for my desk.

Cool well some people find a really major use for these as iPads make for nice kitchen companions but take up too much room and can get dirty. These mounts solve that problem.

The one in the OP is ultra overpriced but as a category of products these are extremely handy for many people
Agree on both points.

If you need something that just sits on your desk then I have heard pretty good things about this one.

If you need something that can mount to a cabinet like the one in the OP (which I do admit is a pretty cool for kitchen use when you want to save as much counter space as possible) then just wait a bit. Twelve South will inevitably put these things on sale.

Seems like a great peripheral device for ergonomic reasons, especially when/if the iPad Pro has an MX-level chipset.
