Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak says he’s not upgrading to iPhone X, would rather ‘wait and watch’

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is certainly never at a loss for words when it comes to Apple topics (or many things), and the 2017 line of iPhones is no exception.

Wozniak told CNBC that he wasn’t planning to upgrade to a new iPhone at launch.

“I’d rather wait and watch that one […] For some reason, the iPhone X is going to be the first iPhone I didn’t — on day one — upgrade to. But my wife will, so I’ll be close enough to see it.”

Wozniak also told CNBC he was skeptical the Face ID feature would work well.

Instead, Wozniak is currently toting an iPhone 8, though he stated it was only an iterative update (an opinion our reviewer echoed).

“I’m happy with my iPhone 8 — which is the same as the iPhone 7, which is the same as the iPhone 6, to me,” he said.

Perhaps his recommendation — albeit less than enthusiastic — will cause some Apple fans to ditch the line-ups that are sure to form for the iPhone X, which is expected to face stock shortages by various analysts and even Rogers CEO Joe Natale, who further stated that iPhone 8 sales were “anemic.”
