The HiRise dock, from Twelve South, is one elegant looking ‘pedestool’ for the Thunderbolt-equipped iPhone 5, 5s, 5c, iPad Mini, iPod Touch (5th generation), and iPod Nano (7th generation). Its name, “HiRise”, comes from the fact that the dock features a height adjustable Thunderbolt connector to accommodate virtually any case you may have on your iDevice. The best part is that the dock is specifically designed not to block the speaker. Cool!
The HiRise makes an excellent stand for your Facetime sessions and it’s just plain gorgeous looking with it’s brushed aluminum look. As you can see from the video, the assembly appears to be slightly involved, but overall simple. You can pick one up for a reasonable $34.99 at Twelve South.
