APPLE CO-FOUNDER STEVE WOZNIAK is feeling a touch disillusioned with smartphones. We know the feeling, but for Wozniak it seems to be more of a surprise.
"You know, I used to track a lot of stuff that was going on in the mobile world, and cellphones," he told Bloomberg. Every day I wanted to look ‘what's new and coming out with cellphones and I'd buy the latest products - many, many of them I had... and now I've lost that interest - I don't know why.
"I don't know if I'm going to benefit from 5G, or that I really feel the need for an increase in cellular bandwidth right now."
He's now more interested in televisions and electric cars, apparently. But that could change with a little innovation from his old baby: "I'm waiting for Apple to come back in the game too, with something really new and striking."
When pressed as to whether Apple was falling behind, Wozniak showed some brand loyalty and dropped a not-so-subtle hint of the iProduct he'd buy. "Apple has been a leader for quite a long time in a few areas such as touch ID, facial ID, and easy payment with the phone. They're not the leader in areas like the folding phone, and that worries me because I really want a folding phone."
That's one very, very advanced pre-order then. Of course, we have no indication that Apple is working on anything of the sort, going by current iPhone 11 rumours - which is odd, because the anticipated prices of £2,000 and over are right in Apple shareholders' sweet spot. If a company can make a dongle cost £20, it should easily be able to make Huawei and Samsung foldables look like value options.
Oh and it'll also help give aural pleasure
But it might still not be enough to make virtual reality super appealing
And a ridiculous competition
