Using the vertical stand for the Xbox One S console

If you want to use your Xbox One S console vertically, you'll need to use the Xbox One S stand for these reasons:

  • The stand helps maintain the stability and performance of the console.
  • Without the stand, the bottom vent would be blocked, which could affect the thermal performance of the console.

Note Make sure your console sits on a flat, stable surface whether you use your console vertically with the stand or horizontally without.

How to get the stand

The stand doesn't come with every console bundle. Check the specifics of any bundle to see if it includes a stand. You can also purchase the stand separately to use your console vertically.

How to use the stand

The stand is designed for placement on only one end of the console. This end is best suited as the bottom for console stability and wireless performance.

Servicing your Xbox One S console or stand

If you ever need your console serviced by Microsoft, remove the stand before sending the console in.

The Xbox One Accessories warranty policy covers the stand. To request an in-warranty replacement, go to Device Support or contact Xbox Support.

If you need a new stand but are out of warranty, you can purchase one from the Microsoft Store or participating retailers.
