Twelve South's HiRise models work just fine with the new iPhones

Twelve South’s US$34.95 HiRise has been around for a while, but it works great with the new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. It's also now available in a "deluxe" version.

The HiRise is a stylish pedestal of silver brushed metal that works exclusively with the Apple Lightning cable (not included) and is small enough to sit anywhere in your home or office. The metal pedestal elevates the iPhone for FaceTime chats, hands-free calls, desktop charging, viewing apps and streaming music. It does this without blocking your speakers, mic or headphone ports as some docks do.

The HiRise works with just about any case, such as the OtterBox Defender, the Speck CandyShell, Apple’s iPhone 5s/5c cases, and Twelve South’s own BookBook. The HiRises’ sliding rear support and multiple height clips can accommodate all these cases and more, or you can use it with no case on the iPhone at all.

The HiRise Deluxe kicks things up a notch by packing both MFi-certified Lightning and Micro-USB cables to keep your iPhone charged, even in a battery case like the Mophie Juice Pack. The stands are available in silver, black and gold to match your choice of iPhone.

When it comes to functionality and aesthetics, the HiRise is the best dock for Lightning iDevices that I’ve seen.
