According to Wall Street sources, current Apple CEO Tim Cook is on the hot seat at Apple with some suggesting that the Cupertino based firm is looking for a new leader; with several big funds already sharply paring their Apple holdings, the pressure is on Cook to turn things around now or else face the wrath of the board...

Woz would be a good choice because he has a favorable reputation with everyone. Even older people might remember him as "that guy from the Dancing show."
But anyone could become a big hit at Apple (with the public anyway) by doing just a couple of tasks:
1. Shutdown all lawsuits against all other companies. Maybe even come out and do an appology, admitting they should have put that energy toward improving their product. This could even be a good opportunity to...
2. Promise to revamp the system. Just like Google taking over Motorola, a new change at the top of the company could excuse a thrill-free Fall release this year, with the promise that everyone could see the new direction in a year or so. Maybe come out with some teaser products next year to hype up to a big release in 2015.
This is pretty much all everyone complains about, but the other members of the Apple board, I know, don't have the common sense God gave a lemming to realize any of this, or even attempt to think about putting it in action. So, I don't expect any of this in the slightest. Just if we lived in a perfect world, maybe. :-P

Tim Cook should revamp iOS and make iPad and iPhone interface deferential. The iPad has a far bigger screen and shouldn't look the same as the iPhone. They should also make a 5 inch screen iPhone and name it iPhone X with a different OS or different interface.

Tim Cook has always been an operational manager not an innovator. When it comes to a company like Apple innovation and pioneering technology is what has to be the forefront. Steve Jobs challenged his designers and engineers and most importantly he challenged his customers. Tim Cook might as well be the CEO of Dell nothing he is doing is bringing Apple to up in the ranks. Riding a tidal wave of an already popular brand doesn't make you a good CEO.
The WOZ should work at Apple but not as a CEO.
