This iPad stand fixed my shitty video call camera angles

I take a ton of video calls with my colleagues using the webcam perched atop the external monitor in my study. But when I’m on a virtual date or catching up with friends, I don’t want to be cooped up in my home office or sat at my work desk. And it wouldn’t hurt to be framed up close and without lens distortion too.

That’s where Twelve South‘s HoverBar Duo comes in. It’s a cleverly designed stand that supports all iPads and works in various orientations, so you can use your tablet hands-free for sketching, watching videos, or following recipe instructions. I’m particularly pleased with how well it works for video calls.


The HoverBar Duo is designed to work with iPads of all sizes, even with thick cases attached; you can also fit phones larger than 5 inches in the clip. The articulating arm can extend to a length of 38.1 cm (15 inches).
