The best iPhone stands in 2022 (1)

The best iPhone stands don't cost a lot, but they can really make it easier, more relaxing and more productive to use your iPhone. They free up your hands to do other things when perusing a slideshow of images, making a video call, or watching Netflix on your phone. Plus they reduce the possibility you'll drop your iPhone while trying to do multiple tasks... so they'll potentially save you a lot of money and anguish too.

But there are so many models to choose from, and some are of very dubious quality. So to make sure you pick the right one, we've gathered together the absolute best iPhone stands available today, in one place.

We've divided our list into two categories. The first five entries on our list all support your iPhone and let you adjust its position for the best possible viewing angle. However, if you're looking for the best iPhone stand that also charges your phone, jump ahead to entries 6-9.

Average looks

If flexibility is the main thing you’re looking for, here’s our top recommendation. As well as adjusting the angle of your iPhone through 180 degrees, Omoton’s stand features a telescopic rod can be elongated by 50mm vertically. This allows you to position it at the best height for relaxed and ergonomic viewing. This is a particularly good stand, then, for anyone suffering from posture problems, or pain in the neck, shoulders or back.

Even if you place your iPhone at the maximum height, the round metal base keeps everything steady, and you don’t need to worry about shaking. There’s also a non-slip silicone pad to protect your device from scratches and slippage.

5. Fanlory Screen Magnifier Stand

The best iPhone stand for magnifying movies

Specifications

Type: Screen magnifier

Single-use product

Here’s something a little different. If you’ve ever watched a movie on your iPhone and wished the screen was a little bigger, this magnifier stand offers a simple and affordable solution. As the name suggests, it features a second screen that increases the size of your picture, making for more enjoyable viewing and less eye strain.

Be warned, though. Some of the promo images for this stand suggest that it allows for wide viewing angles, and that’s very much not the case. You basically have to look directly at the screen and have it at the exact angle for it to work, so this is not suitable for enjoying a movie with friends or family. Other than that, though, it delivers exactly what it promises, and for not much money at all.

Here’s another great charging stand for your iPhone that won’t cost you a lot of money, and has a unique ‘windsurfer’ design that to our eyes looks pretty darn cool. The Nanami Fast Wireless Charger lets you charge your iPhone at 7.5W, in either portrait or landscape, and is compatible with all models from iPhone 8 onwards. Note, though, that if you have a Qi compatible phone, you’ll need to buy a QuickCharge 2.0 (or above) adapter to get the fastest speeds.

This stand comes with four anti-slip rubber feet to keep your iPhone safe and secure, plus there’s in-built protection against overcharging. It supports most phone cases of 5mm thickness or less, although you will need to remove magnetic items like credit cards from your case. Soft LED lights show you your charging status, with solid blue indicating standby mode, and green for charging. A blue light will flash if your phone is not properly aligned or any metal objects are detected.
