Apple Co-Founder Wozniak Not Impressed with iPhone X

“It’s kind of confusing… and that’s not the nature of Apple products.”

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak had previously stated that he was in no hurry to pick up the iPhone X when it was set to be released. It turns out, that was the truth, and he never actually went to pick one up himself. Instead, in December, a month after the release of the device, Apple CEO Tim Cook went ahead and sent the Woz a phone.

Based on statements Wozniak made during an interview with CNBC, it sounds as if Wozniak is not that impressed with Apple’s latest iPhone.

What does he like?

“The greatest thing about the iPhone X for me is a little more screen space that’s in my pocket.”

The greatest thing about the iPhone X is the screen size? But what about the biggest feature, Face ID?

“As far as the face ID, it really hasn’t worked as well for me as Touch ID and I really like the ones where you touch on the back. It hasn’t been like, ‘Oh my gosh, it’s the greatest thing in the world.'”

But how is he taking the loss of the home button? Not very well.

“The worst thing about it is the combination power and home key button which has about eight different functions in terms of when you push it and how you push it and how long you push it. It’s kind of confusing… and that’s not the nature of Apple products.”

Well that doesn’t exactly sound like a ringing endorsement from the legendary co-founder of the company does it?
