A dependable tripod can enhance your iPhone photography skills and help you get an otherwise impossible shot.
Your iPhone is capable of capturing amazing shots, but without a versatile tripod to extend your flexibility you might be restricting its full potential. These tripods will not only accommodate your iPhone 6 and 6s securely, but also open up a whole range of different perspectives that you never had before. Available in different sizes and styles, it's up to you to select the perfect tripod for your needs.
Arkon Flexible Mini Tripod
This flexible tripod can be adjusted to wrap around objects like fences, trees, or poles to gain a positional advantage over the traditional tripod. The holder's spring-loaded mechanism opens up to 3.6 inches wide, accommodating the iPhone 6 or 6s — even with a case on. It can also fit an iPhone 6 Plus or 6s Plus, though only your case options will be limited. The phone holder attaches to the tripod using a 1/4-inch, 20-thread screw and the entire tripod is very well built with durable parts and easy adjustments.
Shoot video or take pictures in portrait or landscape positions while the Arkon's flexible legs securely grasp the object of your choice. You can always use it as a regular tripod, too!
Kenu Stance Compact Tripod
For a more compact tripod that's simple to use with your iPhone 6 or 6s, the Kenu Stance weights only 1.2 ounces and is about the size of a pack of gum. Unfolded, the Kenu Stance mounts directly into your iPhone's Lightning port instead of using a bulky clasp. The zinc-alloy construction and non-slip feet provide a stable base if you're using this tripod in portrait mode, but with the legs folded flat you can use it in a landscape position. You can even use it as a bottle opener when it's folded up!
The Kenu Stance isn't as large as your traditional tripod, which makes it a good (or bad) choice for some, but it will definitely provide a stable way to shoot video or snap photos while maintaining a pocketable design.
eCostConnection 50-inch Tripod
This lightweight tripod from eCostConnection extends to 50 inches and uses 3 aluminum alloy legs that are easily adjustable. The phone holder features padding to prevent damage to your iPhone and opens up to 3.4 inches. The clip can rotate so you can use your iPhone in portrait or landscape positions, or tilt or turn the mount until you find your desired shot. For a simple, yet affordable iPhone 6 or 6s tripod, this one is hard to beat for the price.
Joby GripTight GorillaPod
Allowing you to capture those unique shots is the Joby GripTight GorillaPod, sporting flexible legs that wrap securely around just about any object. This tripod provides amazing stability on all types of surfaces while the durable phone holder features rubber padding to securely grip your iPhone. The holder can be opened up to 3.9 inches to fit your phone while a case is worn, too. If you ever want to use a different holder, simply remove the GripTight mount and attach any other 1/4-inch, 20-threaded adapter.
MeFOTO Roadtrip Travel Tripod
For the serious iPhone photographer, this travel tripod from MeFOTO is a must-have. It's quick and easy to assemble and disassemble, and can easily convert to a monopod if needed. The legs of this tripod can be independently locked into 2 different angles, depending on the terrain or how cramped your shooting area is. The high quality aluminum and carbon fiber build is top-notch, making it ideal for long-term use. You'll find plenty of easy adjustments, as well as the ability for 360-degree panning. Although an iPhone mount isn't included with the tripod itself, you can snag it separately in just about any color.
