To use an iPad hands free around the home or office, you can get a desktop stand or one clamps to a rigid surface. The Twelve South HoverBar Duo gives you both options.

It’s not only height adjustable, but can hold a wide variety of devices, from iPad Pro to iPad mini. And iPhones too.

“HoverBar Duo is an adjustable iPad stand that frees your hands so you can do more — and create more — with iPad. Watch a cooking show or record your own crafting videos,” notes Twelve South. “Lift your iPad to eye-level for Zoom calls or give grandma a virtual seat at the party.”

Use the desktop stand to make your iPad into a second screen for your Mac. Or clamp the mount to a cabinet to watch a cooking show in the kitchen.

Watch a demo video from Twelve South to see various uses for the tablet mount:

The accessory doesn’t block the tablet’s charging port. It does cover the iPad Pro Apple Pencil charger, but there’s a slot for this stylus in the desk case.

HoverBar Duo launched Wednesday on the Twelve South website. It can be ordered now for $79.99.

Those looking for a more basic option might consider the Satechi Aluminum Desktop Stand ($44.99).
