Twelve South has unveiled its new HiRise 2 for iPhone & iPad ahead of the first batch of Apple’s latest smartphone delivering on Friday. Alongside new colors, the popular dock is now 33% smaller in comparison to the previous generation despite adding overall weight to support larger devices. There are two options currently available: the basic model does not ship with a Lightning or microUSB cable. The larger Deluxe comes with both and retails for $59.99 (a $20 surcharge over the smaller dock). Twelve South is also unveiling two new colors: matte black and white. This is a welcome addition that should play well with the iPhone 7.
Despite increasing the overall weight, Twelve South still doesn’t recommend charging a 12.9-inch iPad Pro on its dock. However, each iPhone (including the new 7/Plus), smaller iPads and other Lightning-connected devices from Apple are compatible. That means you’ll be able to power up your AirPods (via the charging case), Magic Mouse, and Apple Remote. An adjustable back support allows room for larger cases, such as Mophie’s juice packs.

Charleston, SC, September 13, 2016 – Twelve South is thrilled to introduce the ultimate home for iPhone. HiRise 2 is a newly refined version of our most popular charging stand. This beautiful stand features a new design, new colors and new functionality. We designed the new HiRise 2 with the user in mind. Taking cues from our customers’ feedback, the design has changed, but the quality and performance you’ve come to know and love, has not.

In addition to charging, the HiRise 2 creates the perfect place to use your devices hands free.
