REVIEW – If you use your iPad Pro as an extra monitor for your laptop or desktop computer or you use your iPad Pro as your ONLY computer, then you definitely need a stand for it to make the experience more computer-like. Today I want to show you the Lululook Urban Magnetic iPad Pro Stand. Let’s check it out.
What is it?
The Lululook Urban Magnetic iPad Pro Stand is an updated version of the Lululook Magnetic iPad Pro Stand that Dave reviewed earlier this year.
What’s in the box?
- Lululook Magnetic iPad Pro Stand
This magnetic tablet stand is only compatible with iPad Pro 11” 1st Gen, iPad Pro 11” 2nd Gen, iPad Pro 11‘’(3rd Generation) and iPad Air 4th Gen.
Design and features
The Lululook Urban Magnetic iPad Pro Stand is available in versions for the 11 inch iPad Pro and the 12.9 inch iPad Pro. I was sent one for the 11 inch iPad Pro. I have the 3rd gen iPad Pro.
The stand is made of heavy aluminum with a space grey finish. The stand has a wide base with a non-skid pad underneath.
The mount for the iPad Pro is a large rectangular magnetic pad which has a soft later of what feels like silicon or rubber that prevents it from scratching the back of the iPad.
The angle of the magnetic mount can be adjusted almost 360°. In the image above, you can see that it’s angled to as far as it can go in that axis.
And it can then rotate up and over the back of the stand too. I’m not sure why you would want to fold it all the way back like that, but if you want to, you can.
The magnetic holder can also rotate 360° so that the orientation of the iPad Pro can easily switch from landscape to portrait with a quick turn.
Here’s my 11 inch iPad Pro attached to the Lululook Urban Magnetic iPad Pro Stand. The magnets in the mount are strong enough to hold securely hold the iPad.
I even have a skin on the back of my iPad Pro and didn’t notice any issues with the magnetic hold.
I like that you can change the orientation easily. Note that you do need to hold on to the base when you are turning the screen. Although the Lululook Urban Magnetic iPad Pro Stand has some weight to it, it’s not heavy enough to be able to manipulate the viewing angle without holding the stand’s base.
I do wish that the stand also offered a ledge so that it could be used with other tablets too.
What I like
- Strong magnets holds the iPad Pro securely to the stand
- Customizable viewing angle, and orientation
What I’d change
- Lower the price
- Add a ledge/feet so that the stand can be used with other tablets
The only problem I have with the Lululook Urban Magnetic iPad Pro Stand is the price. It’s more than $30 more than the first version of the stand that we reviewed earlier this year. $90 is a lot to pay for an accessory for an already expensive tablet. If you can get past the price, the Lululook Urban Magnetic iPad Pro Stand is a nice stand for the iPad Pro. It raises the tablet above a work surface so that you can use it with a keyboard and mouse or as a 2nd monitor.
