7 Best iPad Mounts For Cars (Front & Back)

iPads in cars offer convenient navigation with apps like Waze or Google Maps, and you can also entertain passengers by playing Netflix or movies. iPads can even serve as a radio alternative, especially in older cars, using apps like Spotify.

But you need to buy an iPad mount for the car so that you can attach it securely.

You can securely attach your iPad in various locations within your car, including the dashboard, cupholder, ventilation system, or windshield. If you have passengers in the back, you can conveniently mount your iPad on the headrest.

I’ll divide this article into two parts. I’ll begin with iPad mounts for the front of cars and then move on to iPad mounts for the back. In the back, you can conveniently mount the iPad on the headrest to entertain your backseat passengers.

iPad Mounts for the Front of The Car

iPad mounts for the front of the car for all iPads: iPad, iPad Mini, iPad Air, and iPad Pro. These holders can be attached to windshields, cupholders, vent systems, and dashboards.

Porfortop Cup Mount

cup holder mount for ipad

Porfortop fits perfectly into cars or trucks’ cup holders. This heavy-duty mount can hold electronic devices from 4.7 to 12.9″. It’s easy to install and remove.

The practicality of this mount depends on a few things. The location of your car’s cup holder and whether your car has a manual transmission or not.

I would recommend cup holder mounts for people with automatic transmissions. But if your cup holder isn’t near the transmission, it’s a great product and a place to put your iPad.

The mount’s clamp offers a 360° swivel, thanks to the ball joint, allowing you to choose between landscape and portrait views. The arm itself is 15″ long. The section designed for the cupholder is tapered and ribbed, ensuring a secure and snug fit. Once the holder is installed it’s basically immovable.

Compatible with all devices from 4.7 to 12.9″ (iPads, Tablets, iPhones, Smartphones)

Aozcu Windshield Tablet Mount

Aozcu Windshield mount can be used with all tablets and smartphones 4.7 to 12.9″ big.

It’s a good old suction mount. You stick it on the windshield, and it firmly stays there. You can rotate the mount in a 360-degree angle for the best viewing angles.

Before you attach the mount to your windshield, I recommend cleaning it so it sticks better.

The clip-on which you will attach to your iPad or smartphone has a non-slip silicone pad, so your device doesn’t get scratched.

Compatible with all devices from 4 to 13″ (iPads, Tablets, iPhones, Smartphones)

eSamcore Dashboard Holder

eSamcore mount can be used with all tablets and smartphones 6 to 11″ big.

It’s a suction mount. You place the mount on your car’s dashboard. The cup is coated with a layer of sticky gel. It’s very sturdy and holds on to your dashboard nicely, even through the steep roads.

You can adjust the mount arm up and down in 140° through the security lock to fit your dashboard. It also has a 360°rotating ball joint that allows you to rotate the device from landscape mode to portrait mode. Since it’s attached to your car’s dashboard not the windshield, it will not block your view.

Compatible with all devices from 6 to 11″ (iPads, Tablets, iPhones, Smartphones)

APPS2Car CD Mount


APPS2Car is a CD mount holder for iPads. You simply install it by putting it in your card CD-slot.

When you put the mount inside the CD slot and attach your iPad to it, you can’t even see the mount itself. It looks like the iPad is part of your car, which gives bonus points to your car aesthetics.

The holder has full 360-degree rotation and swivel, so you can get the best angle for you.

There are still a lot of cars with CD players, but most of us don’t use them anyway, so if you are one of those people, that might be the perfect place to add your iPad and upgrade your car.

Compatible with all devices from 3.5 to 12.9″ (iPads, Tablets, iPhones, Smartphones)

Xuenair Vent Mount

Xuenair Vent Mount

Air vents can not only improve the supply of air circulation in your vehicle, but they can also hold your iPad or iPhone.

It’s advisable to opt for a vent mount only if your car allows you to close off a specific vent. While cold air in the summer won’t cause harm, the hot air from the vent in winter might pose a risk to your device.

Xuenair mount attaches to the vents of cars. If you plan to mount your iPad on it, I recommend using the middle vents. You can mount all iPads on it and it will hold them firmly. It can hold classic iPad, iPad Mini, iPad Air, iPad Pro.

This vent mount employs 17mm diameter ball head, offering a 360° adjustable feature. Whether you’re navigating(GPS) or enjoying music, you can customize it to provide you with the optimal viewing angle.

Compatible with all devices from 4 to 12.9″ (iPads, Tablets, iPhones, Smartphones)

iPad Mounts for the Back of The Car

These mounts can be attached to the front seat headrests. Allowing the backseat passengers a hands-free experience.

I know how important it is sometimes to entertain your passengers and kids in the back seat so you can have a little peace and have undivided attention on the road. Here are some of the best mounts for headrests:

Lamicall Tablet Holder

People with children will know that it’s not easy to travel with children. Sometimes, you just want peace and quiet. With Lamicall Tablet Holder, you can attach your device and turn on iTunes, Disney, Netflix, and YouTube. etc, and entertain your little backseat passages.

The 360-degree rotation allows you to rotate the device at any angle you desire. You can switch from a horizontal view to a vertical view.

It’s not ideal if you have two children at the back. For that, I will recommend another product, which I will list below.

Compatible with all devices from 4 to 12.9″ (iPads, Tablets, iPhones, Smartphones)

LISEN Car Mount Headrest

Headrest iPad Car Holder Back Seat

The Lisen headrest mount is made for all of the backseat passages.

The mount is adjustable and simple to install, no additional tools are required. This headrest mount stands out from the competitors because you can adjust the viewing angles so that the iPad itself sits between the two front seats, allowing everyone in the back to watch the same movie.

The mount has 360° rotation and adjustments. Children can touch the device’s screen from the seat.

This mount is built to fit into any car model as long as it has a front seat and a headrest.

Compatible with all devices from 4 to 12.9″ (iPads, Tablets, iPhones, Smartphones)

Hands-Free Experience

We all are a bit different. Our cars are different, and how we use iPads and phones differs. That’s exactly why there are so many varieties of iPad mounts for cars. For one, the CD slot mount is perfect. For another, the windshield mount is what he needs. Then there’s another group of parents who just want a simple iPad holder for the back so they can entertain their kids while they drive.

These accessories cost around $20. I hope among my top picks, you have found your next iPad car mount.
