Twelve South HiRise for iPhone 5 & iPad Mini

· · · Case, Dock & Bag

In Sydney, almost everything there is more expensive than in Singapore maybe except for coffee and this HiRise dock. I bought the Twelve South HiRise for iPhone 5 & iPad Mini from Apple Store Sydney for AU$34.95 (S$41). In Apple Online Store (Singapore), the same dock is retailing for S$49.

This HiRise dock is compatible with all Apple Lighting devices maybe except for the iPad. Though I tested with an iPad Air and it fits fine, it is very flimsy and easily topple from the side of the dock.

Assembling this dock is pretty cumbersome since there are four screws you need to attach and at the same time you need to hold on to the rear/front support. I find the Elevation Dock was much easier to assemble despite the need for screws in that dock as well.

One good thing about the dock is that your device is being elevated when docked and hence you still can use the headphone jack of your device to listen to music or to answer a call. And because it is being elevated, your device’s speakers are not blocked and hence you will get to hear the full volume of it.

The dock comes with three Lightning cable clips that allows the HiRise to work with practically any case on the market especially cases with recessed connections that no other dock can fit.

Do note that only the official 0.5m or 1m Apple’s Lightning Cable will work with this dock because the fit is very precise. Even the official 2m Apple’s Lighting cable will not fit because it is slightly thicker.
