An iPad can serve many purposes. One of the better ones is a TV emulator. You can watch any kind of video on it, from Youtube to Netflix. But unlike your television, you have to keep it in your hands, which can be tiring. That’s where Just Mobile steps in with its UpStand. It’s purpose is to be a stand for your iPad, and relieve you of the need to hold it. It is precision engineered from aluminium. It consists of a radial round base with two solid vertical rods for support, and an A-shaped easel holder. Its supporting grips have rubber on them, so they won’t scratch your iPad or your desk.

The design is quite stylish and practical at the same time. You can place your iPad on UpStand both horizontally and vertically. The height is perfect for desktop use, in case you want to work on your iPad. The best way to do so would be to connect it to an Apple Bluetooth keyboard. If you want to just watch movies/videos the viewing angle is fixed, but comfortable. It is compatible with: iPad 1, iPad 2, iPad 3, iPad 4, iPad mini, iPad mini with Retina Display, iPad mini 3, iPad Air, iPad Air 2.
