Steve Wozniak, the co-founder of Apple, never hid his views on his former company’s products. Recently, he said not too flattering criticism of the iPhone 13.
It is well known about Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak that he enjoys trying out the company’s tools that once grew with Steve Jobs and has now become a technological superpower, namely Apple. Of course, the iPhone 13 announced in September couldn’t be left out of the line either, but it turned out it disappointed Wozniak.
“I have the new iPhone, but I can’t tell it apart (from its predecessors),” Wozniak writes, adding that he thinks the software in the device is designed for older iPhones.
Yahoo! Finance also notes that even positive iPhone 13 indicated a lack of radical change. The Cnet, for example, wrote that some people are likely to be disappointed because the iPhone does not differ radically from the 13 previous models, but it’s part of the magic of the iPhone. The iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini are the same trusted friends that seem never to change.
Anyway, this isn’t the first time Wozniak has missed the thrill of releasing a new iPhone. In 2017, for example, he told reporters that the iPhone X would be the first iPhone he didn’t buy on the first day of release. “I’d rather wait and see it. I’m happy with the iPhone 8, which for me is the same as the iPhone 7, which is the same as the iPhone 6,” he said then.
Going back to the iPhone 13: Apple doesn’t share Wozniak’s opinion at all. Instead, he voices that he has made considerable improvements to the iPhone 13 in almost every area, especially the iPhone 13 Pro. Apple explicitly mentions the new A15 Bionic circuit, the fastest chip ever made for a smartphone.
