Apple has always been a trendsetter in technology. From notch(ed) displays to face recognition, phone makers have followed it all.
But this year, it is different, and Steve Wozniak is worried about the new change. In a Bloomberg TV interview, Apple co-founder showed his concern about the fact that Apple is not into making a foldable phone. He also expressed that he would like to have one.
“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.”
In the past few months, foldable phones have become the buzz of the town. Smartphone manufacturers such as Samsung and Huawei have tested their own dual-screen devices. Although having different designs, all of them have been priced more than $1500.
Going by Wozniak’s words, it seems like Apple won’t be delving into the foldable phone segment, at least for now. In fact, Apple has previously told the company’s future developments will be a lot less on iPhones.
“They just got so successful on the iPhone, and that was their whole business for a long time,” Wozniak said. “Now they’re branching out so a lot of their businesses have been very good.”
