It’s been just about two months since iPhone 6/Plus were released in the US and there’s still no word from Apple regarding an official dock. And that’s fine, because the best iPhone 6/Plus dock has been available the entire time.
Today, Twelve South is introducing an updated version called the HiRise Deluxe. Its basic design and function remains the same, but Twelve South has updated two aspects that address the only (very minor) qualms we had with the original HiRise.
Now, the Deluxe model doesn’t require any tools for making size adjustments to accommodate nearly any case. Also, instead of having to provide your own charging cable, Twelve South is now including one Lightning and one Micro-USB cable. In addition to black and silver, the Deluxe HiRise will also be available in a gold finish.
The Twelve South HiRise Deluxe is available now for $59.99. The $25 up-charge over the original HiRise is reasonable since it includes a Lightning ($11-19 value) and Micro-USB ($2-3 value) in addition to other design upgrades.
Looking for something a little different? Our iPhone 6/Plus dock roundup has several different options from a range of major brands.

“HiRise Deluxe is a more perfect charging dock, thanks to our customers,” said Twelve South Creative Director Andrew Green. “They asked for color-matched cables. HiRise Deluxe comes with a Lightning AND a Micro-USB cable! Easier adjustment? HiRise Deluxe now has a dial to change support depth. And for simple assembly, choose your cable and clip — that’s it! No tools necessary. But the new Gold color? That one’s for me.” HiRise Deluxe, which includes Micro-USB and Lightning Cables, is available now in silver, black and a new gold to match the newest iPhones. HiRise Deluxe is compatible with any device which charges using either a Lightning Cable or Micro-USB (like extended battery cases).
