Twelve South now offers two different types of accessories for the Apple Watch, because two is better than one. After successfully launching its HiRise stand and dock for the Apple Watch, Twelve South's latest addition to its Apple Watch accessory lineup includes the Forte - an elegantly designed charging stand with a polished high-end look and feel that may even remind you of Apple's original iPhone. Blending chromed metal with genuine leather, Twelve South's Forte will work with all Apple Watch models and watch bands in either portrait or Nightstand mode orientations – making it one of the more multifaceted charging stands out right now. But does it live up to expectations? Let's find out!Read More
Where do you put your MacBook when you're not using it? Do you put it back into your laptop sleeve, bag, or off to the side where it takes up valuable desk space in disarray? If headphones have headphone stands, why shouldn't MacBooks have a desk companion too. Unless you're new to Macs or have been living under a rock for the past few years, there's one very such thing. It's called BookArc - a beautifully crafted piece of anodized aluminum made to compliment any MacBook whilst proudly presenting it by vertically elevating it off of your desk. And this one is the much improved version of the original winning recipe.
While this newly redesigned version of Twelve South's BookArc continues serving its original purpose of providing users an organized and efficient way of using their MacBook in a closed-display mode (aka clamshell mode) with an external display setup, it also offers a few other improvements we think are worth taking a another look at.Read More
Twelve South, the company with a respected bias towards all-things Apple and primarily Macs, has recently come out with the Bassjump 2 - a successor to the original BassJump that launched a few years ago. It's still as portable as ever so you can take it with you almost anywhere, consumes its power and delivers audio using only one of your USB ports, and is made out of aluminum so that it perfectly compliments your Mac. For those of you who haven't yet discovered this little squarish metal box of tricks and don't know what it does, well, the BassJump 2 is quite simply a portable subwoofer add-on that connects to any MacBook, MacBook Pro, or MacBook Air creating an energetic threesome of audio awesomeness. It basically introduced the missing mid-level and low-end bass so desperately needed to your Mac's built-in speakers using an external power-friendly and sleek complementing design along with a custom OS X app. Make your way down to our full review to find out what's new with Twelve South's BassJump 2.Read More
Twelve South's obsession over elevating Apple products hasn't stopped with its adjustable HiRise stand for the iMac and MacBooks, because now the company has released a third and unlikely final version of the HiRise, and this time it's made for iOS devices.

Made entirely out of aluminum and priced at $35, the HiRise is stunning stand gone dock that might be one of the best docking solutions there is. As always, you can catch our in-depth review after the break!Read More
Over the years, Twelve South's ingenious Apple-oriented accessories have received numerous Editors' Choice awards from us. And thanks to yet another exceptional product made for the iPhone, we finally have a great reason to deviate from the norm of having to use a standardized case. But don't call it a case, Twelve South's new SurfacePad is anything but. The SurfacePad is a $35 luxurious and minimalist leather cover for the iPhone 5, and the iPhone 4/S. If you're someone who prefers using the iPhone in the nude - not literally but in its bare nakedness form as Jobs intended, yet still feel the need to get some form of protection that isn't going to drastically change the extraordinary design characteristic of the iPhone, then boy are you in for a sweet treat. Our full detailed review awaits down below!
