HiRise for iPhone 5 & iPad mini
The ultimate pedestal for iPhone 5 & iPad mini.
HiRise for iPhone 5 & iPad mini is a beautiful, brushed metal stand designed to work with your Apple Lightning Cable (not included) – and virtually any iPhone 5 and iPad mini case. Place HiRise in your workspace to charge while your hands are free during calls and FaceTime chats. Unlike most other docks, HiRise doesn’t block your speakers, mic or headphone ports. This vertical pedestal is small and beautiful enough to use anywhere in your home or office. It’s the ultimate perch for keeping your iPhone 5 or iPad mini fully charged and ready to go.
A stroke of lightning cable.
HiRise’s height-adjusting cable clips and movable rear support allows HiRise to work with most cases on the market today – especially those with recessed connections that no other dock can fit. The secret is Apple’s extremely small, high quality Lightning Cable – which allows us to adjust the connector height and create a perfectly fitting dock with the Lightning cable you already have. The HiRise fits many of the most popular cases in the world, like the OtterBox® Defender and Speck CandyShell. Of course, our favorite case for HiRise is our own BookBook for iPhone.
Well adjusted to fit you.
One of best features of this nifty little stand is that it adjusts to fit so many cases. The rear support on HiRise slides back and forth to support thick protective cases, minimal shells or no case at all. With a sliding rear support and multiple-height clips, you won’t have to give up your dock when choosing your next case.
Elevate your iPhone experience.
Having your iPhone 5 elevated by HiRise means you can FaceTime or Skype hands-free. Because HiRise lifts your iPhone in the air, it doesn’t block or muffle your microphone or speakers. Speakerphone calls are crisp and clear. HiRise is also awesome for keeping an eye on your favorite apps, like those for news, weather and sports scores.
iPad mini soars with HiRise.
If you’ve been looking for the perfect dock for your iPad mini as long as we have, your search is over. HiRise makes a spectacular pedestal for iPad mini. Sitting atop HiRise, your iPad mini looks absolutely gorgeous, and the speakers are wide open too. Just like iPhone, you can stream your favorite music or display your favorite photos, all while charging your device on a modern vertical perch. We think HiRise will lift the ways you use and interact with your mini.
Stream your favorite hits.
Remember when your favorite speakers also docked and charged your iPod? HiRise is a great way to keep your iPhone or iPad mini fully charged while streaming music to your favorite new Bluetooth speakers (not included). Go ahead, listen to hours of music... you’ll find that big green iPhone “battery full” icon when you’re ready to grab your phone and go. This sculptured metal stand looks great parked next to the most stylish Bluetooth speakers out there – or your Mac desktop setup.

|What’s in the box|
- Can I use a different brand of Lightning cable than Apple?
HiRise is designed to work exclusively with the smallest and highest quality Lightning Cable available – the Apple Lighting Cable that came in the box with your iPhone 5, iPod Touch or iPad mini. The Apple Lightning Cable fits perfectly with the HiRise height-adjustable clips, allowing you to use HiRise with nearly any case on the market, whether it’s a rugged OtterBox® Defender, a Speck® CandyShell, or our favorite -- the BookBook for iPhone.
- Can I use Apple's 2-meter Apple Lightning Cable with HiRise for iPhone?
No. The new 2 meter Apple Lightning Cable is thicker than the standard 1 meter cable (the one that came with your iPhone) or .5 meter cable, so it is unfortunately incompatible with HiRise for iPhone. If you need additional length, we recommend extending the length of your 1-meter cable instead by buying a USB extension cable instead (like this one).
- Can I use HiRise for iPhone with my iPhone 4/4S?
Sorry. HiRise is made exclusively to work with Apple’s Lighting Cable, which means it’s compatible with iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5, iPod Touch (5th generation) and iPad mini only.
- Can I use HiRise if I have the Apple iPhone 5s or Apple iPhone 5c case installed on my device?
Yep. By using the #2 clip (included with your HiRise), you can use HiRise to dock your iPhone without having to remove your Apple iPhone 5c Case or Apple iPhone 5s Case.
- Can I use HiRise with my full-size iPad (4th generation)?
We don’t recommend it. While the Lightning connector of the full-size iPad is compatible, its overall size is a bit too big to be stable on the HiRise.
- Do I have to remove my iPhone case to use HiRise?
No way. HiRise works with nearly any iPhone 5/5s case on the market today. You can also use your iPod Touch (5th generation) or iPad mini with HiRise and nearly any case that covers them.
- How can I know if my case will work with HiRise? (video)
Step 1: While connected, use your thumb to mark the visible portion of the lightning cable
Step 2: Measure from your mark to the top of the white overmold of your cable
Step 3: If it measures 5mm or less, your case is compatible!
- Does HiRise block access to the headphone jack on my iPhone?
No. Unlike cup holder type docks, HiRise elevates iPhone so you can easily use the headphone jack.
- Does HiRise muffle my iPhone speakers?
Nope. Having iPhone elevated on HiRise means your speakers will sound just like Apple intended them too. Sound won’t be blocked, distorted or muffled as it would with a drop-in style dock.
- Why does HiRise use the Apple Lightning Cable?
HiRise for iPhone/iPad mini uses the Apple Lightning Cable exclusively. It’s the cable that came with your Apple iPhone 5, iPad mini or iPod Touch (5th gen.) Here’s why:
The Apple Lightning Cable is the secret to using HiRise with practically any case. The HiRise height-adjustable clips, along with the Apple Lightning Cable, means HiRise can work with practically any case on the market today–especially cases with recessed connections that no other dock can fit.
All Lightning Cables are not created equal. Exclusively using Apple's Lightning Cable allows us to create a perfectly-fitting dock with the smallest and highest-quality Lightning cable we know of–the Apple Lightning Cable you already have.
It makes the best possible desktop stand. Most users have additional specialized Lightning cables, such as car chargers or shorter travel cables. This leaves an Apple Lightning Cable at home. Installing an Apple Lightning Cable into HiRise turns your already-stationary cable into a beautiful, convenient desktop dock.
- How do I identify the Lightning cable clips and insert them into HiRise? (photo)
Each Lightning cable clip has a number imprinted on the bottom of the clip. These numbers represent the additional height it will provide your Lighting cable if using HiRise with an iPhone that has a case installed.Click here for a handy graphic showing how to identify each clip and insert them into HiRise.
- What is the benefit to keeping my iPhone 5 on a HiRise?
HiRise for iPhone is a perfect way to charge and sync your iPhone 5, iPod Touch (5th generation) or iPod mini, while using nearly any case that covers them. HiRise is small enough to use at your workspace or anywhere in your home or office. Plug your Lightning Cable into a wall outlet for charging or plug it into your iMac or MacBook to charge and sync your phone using HiRise.
- Can I undock my iPhone from HiRise with one hand? (video)
Yep, check out the video below:
Although you can undock your iPhone 5 from HiRise with one hand, we do recommend using two hands when undocking an iPad mini from HiRise.
