Twelve South StayGo Mini review: A versatile USB-C hub with 4K HDMI for iPad and MacBook

The Twelve South StayGo mini was introduced at the tail end of last month as the brand’s lightest and most compact USB-C hub yet.

Doubling as one of those tight-fit hubs that effectively snaps onto the side or bottom of your device via USB-C, it also comes with a “desk cable” for a more traditional USB hub experience. Head below for a closer look at our hands-on Twelve South StayGo mini review.

AirSnap by Twelve South secures AirPods to your backpack in stylish leather case

When Apple’s AirPods originally debuted, the possibility of losing one or both of the wireless earbuds was a major concern.

Twelve South makes the best iPhone 6/iPad dock even better by simplifying its setup and adding a gold color option

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.

The best iPhone 6 and 6 Plus docks from Twelve South, Belkin, Henge Docks and more

Update (12/17 2:45pm): Amazon Lightning Deal! Belkin Charge and Sync Dock with Lightning Cable for $13.65 Prime shipped (Reg. $25).

(Update 5/19 10:30am): The time has come. Apple has randomly announced a new Lightning dock for iPhone 6/Plus. However, you should still take a look at the numerous third party options (below) that have been on the market for years. Many of these options offer more styling and better value compared to Apple’s dock.

If you were one of over 4 million people who preordered an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus this weekend, then you may have noticed that one of Apple’s most popular accessories for previous gen iPhones is curiously absent from its online store. As of right now, Apple seems to be sitting on the sideline and will not be releasing a dock designed for its newest smartphones.

Docks position your iPhone in a way that makes it easier to keep tabs on incoming notifications, all while helping create a clean workspace by wrangling messy cables.

There are already several iPhone 6 and 6 Plus dock solutions. Here are our favorite docks, stands, mounts, and more:

Twelve South BackPack steel shelf for iMac and Apple displays: $27 shipped (Reg. $35)

Update (9/14 9:50pm): Amazon prices now start at $27.99 Prime shipped. B&H has dropped to $27.27 w/ free shipping.

Amazon via Wade’s Amusement (fulfilled by Amazon) offers the Twelve South BackPack steel shelf for iMac and Apple displays for $27 Prime shipped. You can pay an extra $0.27 and go through Amazon direct. That’s 23% below its regular price of $34.99 and within cents of the best deal we’ve ever seen.

Furthermore, this deal is even more noteworthy because we rarely see any substantial discounts on Twelve South Apple accessories. Also, if you don’t qualify for Prime shipping or reach the $35 Amazon free shipping threshold, then your next best buy would be from B&H for $28.27 with free shipping.

The BackPack is a steel shelf that’s designed to mount to the front of back of an iMac or Apple display. Use it to clean up your workspace by safely stowing an external hard drive, keyboard, or even a Mac Mini.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 stars from Amazon reviewers and during our review we found that:

…the BackPack 2 is an amazing solution for clearing up the technology from your desk.
