Twelve South HoverBar Duo Review: Holds Your iPad Right Where You Need It Most

The iPad is great on its own but becomes exponentially better when paired with the “right” accessories, and the new Twelve South HoverBar Duo is one such accessory. Much more than a simple tablet stand, this smartphone/tablet holder works with a variety of devices, is future-proof, and holds your device in the perfect position for your work or viewing.

Twelve South makes accessories for Apple devices that are always simple, thoughtful and well-made. I’ve been a fan for years. The latest Twelve South offering is the PowerPic.
