A new design concept has married elements of the recently released Mac Studio desktop computer to everyone’s favorite handset, the iPhone.
The resulting renders, by prolific Italian concept artist Antonio De Rosa, show a sleek “iPhone Studio” with a powerful array of features.
iPhone Studio renders borrow Mac’s design language for a powerful new handset concept
Cult of Mac has followed De Rosa and his ADR Studio for a long time, often writing about his Apple-related design concepts.
So, most recently, he released an “Apple ProCam” 8K camera with a built-in photograph printer.
Before that, we wrote about his computer setup and had a Q&A with him back when he put out a “MacBook Pro MX1” concept. That was just ahead of the last Worldwide Developers Conference.
This video shows all the features suggested in the new iPhone Studio concept:
Concept looks ahead
In his new renders, De Rosa shows “the Mac Studio design language applied to the iPhone: this is Apple iPhone Studio. With an A16 Ultra, USB-C, Audio 3d, ProCamera Array with periscope lens. Check it in AR with your iPhone!” (De Rosa’s website offers a download for an “AR Quick Look” for a 360-degree view).
So the plan would be for a sleek handset powered by an A16 Bionic chipset featuring USB-C connectivity (you may have heard this is all the rage among European regulators).
And the “Audio 3d” appears to refer to the speaker that looks as if it wraps around the entire handset, judging by the speaker grille holes, which would emit sound in all directions.
In addition, the renders also show a whole new “ProCamera Array” with a periscope lens. That advance is expected to shrink down the size of the bump in iPhone starting in 2023.
All-in-all, it’s another striking design by De Rosa, and maybe it’ll be influential, too.
