Will it support a bigger iphone as a bigger iphone 6 is coming out.

Hello Felix,

Articulating Video Stand provides ideal grip and support for iPhone 4/5. Phones with screen of 4.7″ and below are supported, and devices up to size of 5.43″ x 2.72″ x 0.39″ (138 x 69 x 10mm) and weight under 0.33 lbs (150g) can be securely grappled by Articulating Video Stand. We will probably test it out when iPhone 6 is out, but as for now we are not sure if iPhone 6 will fit or not.

My vivitek dlp projector will not show info from my iphone 4. I have the correct vga adapter.

Any suggestions?

Thanks need it for teaching asap

Hello Renee,

Not sure what vga adapter do you have, but please make sure the projector’s resolution setting matches with the ones your iPhone supports. If you are not sure which one please cycle through all of them. Last but not least, if you have the Apple adapter, you should try contact them for tech support.

I’m using your app and iPhone stand in my classroom. It’d be really nice to have control over white balance – for now, the image displayed is typically a bit darker than the actual document cameras that I have used.
