What you need to know
- Apple is rumored to be working on smart glasses of some kind.
- This concept is based on the glasses Steve Jobs wore.
Nobody was better than Steve Jobs when it came to announcing breakthrough new products so it stands to reason he'd be his usual showman self when announcing Apple Glass. A new concept imagines what Apple's rumored smart glasses could look like if Steve Jobs was around to have a hand in them.
Jobs was famous for wearing Lunor Classic Round PP glasses and this design by Antonio De Rosa used that base to create a collection of truly stunning images.
Typically minimalist, the Apple Glass concept shows a pair of glasses that can be charged in a charging case that's very similar to that of AirPods and AirPods Pro.
There's obviously very little chance that any Apple Glass v1 product will look anything like this, mainly thanks to technical limitations. But something like this would be great, eventually. I know I'd be all on — would you?
You can see more of De Rosa's stunning images on their website — they're well worth a glance.
Apple doesn't make any form of smart glasses yet, so why not get some blue light glasses instead? They'll help keep your eyes in top condition and block that blue light whether you're working or playing. These are the best blue light blocking glasses we've come across.
You know. Just until Apple Glass ships.

Having grown up using PCs and spending far too much money on graphics card and flashy RAM, Oliver switched to the Mac with a G5 iMac and hasn't looked back. Since then he's seen the growth of the smartphone world, backed by iPhone, and new product categories come and go. Current expertise includes iOS, macOS, streaming services, and pretty much anything that has a battery or plugs into a wall. Oliver also covers mobile gaming for iMore, with Apple Arcade a particular focus. He's been gaming since the Atari 2600 days and still struggles to comprehend the fact he can play console quality titles on his pocket computer.
"Stunning"? not to me, lol. "Concept"? not unless you redefine the word (from how it's generally used in desgin circles). At the very least, the technology required to make "Apple Glasses" in this kind of form factor won't be available for at least 50 years. At least. This is simply a render. A render of an impractical and rather clunky set of (regular) glasses. A drawing by some kid who's watched to much sci-fi and want's some magic glasses.
Really? I think of a concept as a fanciful artist's idea, while a render is a somewhat stylized version of an actual device. The things Prosser puts out are renders. An artist version of a photograph to potentially hide the source.
