I just measured my iPhone together with its case and made a small holder to mount it on a GorillaPod tripod for timelapse recording. Use a 1/4" nut in the middle for the proper tripod mount thread.

Update: I just made a cut on the right side to the headphone port (you can use Volume + button on the headphone wire as a shutter button).



I printed it with 0.1mm layer height, 20% infill.

It's so good to see that my object became useful in other households too!

Thanks very much for this model! Printed 3 times for various friends. Replicator2, PLA, 50 minutes, Medium, 20g. The fit of the nut was a little tight for the PLA, but a little brute force worked it in there permanently. Works well on slimmer cases; a rubber band or thin cardboard can help keep it from wobbling for naked phones. Wife sends extra thanks as this is proving very helpful to her video series.

Oh sorry, I forgot to describe the dimension of the case. I'll create an parametrized SCAD version if I'll have plenty of time.

lol, I overlooked the part where it said case, just finished printing, and it looks like the printed part is suited for a phone and case thickness of 10.5 - 11 mm.
