Apple Founder Steve Wozniak wants Foldable iPhone. Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak wants Apple to come with a foldable iPhone.
“They are not leading when it comes to folding telephones,
and that worries me because I want one”, says Wozniak according to the news.
“Apple has long been a pioneer in areas such as Touch ID, Face ID and easy phone payments,”
told Wozniak, who founded Apple in 1976 with Ronald Wayne and Steve Jobs.
But according to Wozniak, Apple does not play a leading role in folding phones.
Samsung announced last week its first foldable phone, the Galaxy Fold.
Days later, Huawei revealed the foldable Mate X and showed Oppo a prototype of his foldable phone.
The Samsung and Huawei devices will be released later this year and will cost around 1,718 pounds.
Wozniak is still positive about the future of Apple,
as the company focuses more on other markets besides the iPhone.
“They have just become so successful with the iPhone, and that was their entire business for a long time,” Wozniak said.
Wozniak left Apple out of dissatisfaction
Wozniak worked for Apple until 1985.
He left the company because he perceived that Apple was going the wrong way.
He also sold all his shares at that time.
Co-founder Ronald Wayne sold his shares soon after the founding of Apple.
Steve Jobs also stopped at Apple in 1985, after friction with the CEO he had himself accepted.
Jobs returned in 1997 when Apple stood on the edge of the financial abyss.
He succeeded in making the company thriving again with the iMac and iPod.
