Wozniak says the Apple iPhone is "somewhat behind" on smartphone features

0. phoneArena 07 Feb 2013, 15:05 posted on

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak praised Apple iPhone fans for being loyal, but warned Apple that loyalty is not always a given and that the company still needs to turn out the best products; the Woz said that the iPhone has fallen behind on features as other manufacturers have caught up to Apple and he mentioned Samsung as an example...

Spec wise it's not a big deal considering iOS run just fine. However, you must admit what they say about features is true and Apple really is behind in terms of features.

dude get your head out of your...butt-pucker!
Woz is nutty...yeah genius why dont Apple take advise from you?
Woz is one of the geniuses of today and he along with Jobs built the vision for Apple...dont forget that!

Woz has started sayin it and if Apple have any decency left in them then they'll heed his words and get their act together or end up as they were in 1997!

dudd you really need to stop trolling and get a life!

That comment nailed it. Apple's "there's an app for that" marketing proved they relied on developers to fill in the gaps they created by having such a simplified OS. Fortunately for them the developers brought it, but by today's standards they are falling behind.

Verizon does offer the best LTE and the best overall coverage. There are some things I don't agree with like forcing people to do away with their unlimited data, b/c those customers have generally been long time customers. Other than that, hey, you get what you pay for. Better service, better coverage overall. If another carrier suits you best, then more power to you, I'm not going to tell you you are wrong for that. Just don't tell me that some other carrier can offer service above and beyond Verizon, b/c it's just not true.

Why did you get all those thumbs up for being a d**k. He was just saying that its cool that sombody came out and told it like it was instead of praising there own product and pretending that there are no other. Maybe he don't understand him that we'll but you should atliest see where he is coming from instead of being weird about it like Wozniak is some god. I mean he did a lot of great things in the past but the dude is kind of out of the game as of late except for being a super tech geek like I am. Does woz even contribute anything but his opinion any more. I think as far as making an impact in today's time the woz iz just living of of past accomplishments. I wish he would get more nvolved with a company more. (I hope I am not wrong about him being not involved but I am under the impression that he is semi retired state)

Actually it's time for apple to take notes, which they have. Why do I think they replaced the iOS designer? Apple sees the need for change, and they are in the process of doing it. Eclipse, man if u were at CES you'd know what I'm talking about. Apple doesn't have an official booth/presence there, but just trust me I say a big change is coming for iOS. I attend CES every year, and lets just say apple low key there, and change is coming bro.

How do they plan on doing that without Steve Job. This man was stubborn but brilliant and without him, it's just of matter of when it turns on its face.

If there's one thing Steve lacked is the vision to raise successors toexceed even him. I have a ffeeling Google has the visionaries that have the skill set to push the envelope and continue to produce relevant and new products.

Apple has grown to big and I doubt the pioneers in the company have room to ideas to work on paper. But who knows Steve was a pretty smart guy. He might still have products for the next ten years to keep consumers stimulated.... I doubt it.

I think there are some ways to make ios less stagnant. If your reading this apple. I suggest introduction of live widgets to keep the o's fresh.

Yeah a big change is definitly coming for iOS.. once again Apple will "add" 200 new features, although you can't really see or use them.. but they are there, lurking in the background somewhere! You just have to take Apples word on that.

Can you give us an example about cool features?

I dont want "COOL FEATURES" from Apple
I want "BASIC FEATURES" like bluetooth file transfer or USB storage etc..

But as long as iTunes exists...
