Apple iPhone Features: Although the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone is well known for revolutionizing the smartphone industry, not everybody believes that the Cupertino-based company is out in front of the competition in all regards.
In fact, Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak is one of those who feel that the company has fallen “somewhat behind” in regard to features.
Wozniak recently sat down with German publication Wirtschafts Woche to discuss everything from the inception of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) to where the company stands right now to what the future may hold.
The article, published in German, was translated by AppleInsider. Here is what Wozniak said, without holding anything back:
“Currently we are in my opinion… somewhat behind. Others have caught up. Samsung is a great competitor. But precisely because they are currently making great products.”
Of course, Wozniak is not saying anything here that most people don’t already know. Recent data shows that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Samsung are at the head of the class when it comes to mobile phone shipments, sales, and profits.
While some people have a difficult time challenging Apple, Wozniak tells it like it is. This is not the first time he spoke out against the company.
The same AppleInsider piece notes the following:
“Last year, after Microsoft unveiled its Surface tablet, Wozniak quipped in an interview that the visual aesthetic of the device made him think “Steve Jobs came back reincarnated” at Microsoft.”
Although Wozniak was honest about his feelings regarding the smartphone market, this doesn’t mean he is sour on Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL). He is just like many when it comes to new product launches. He added:
“The launch of a new Apple product is for me like a big, major concert in which you absolutely must attend personally. It’s history. Sure, I could order online or call the store manager… But that would be nothing. No, I will have the experience like any normal customer. But one thing is certain. If Apple would make lousy products, I would not be in line.”
See, Wozniak believes in Apple and its products.
