Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has not worked at the company he created with Steve Jobs for nearly three decades, but his thoughts are still well respected within the tech community. In a recent interview with CNN at Capital One’s new Innovation Center in Plano, Texas, he offered up his latest opinion: Apple should have made a larger iPhone three years ago.
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak thinks Tim Cook & Co should have made a giant iPhone much sooner. “Apple could have had a much bigger share of the smartphone market if it had a larger-screen iPhone for the past three years,” Wozniak told CNNMoney from Capital One’s new Innovation Center in Plano, Texas. “It could have competed better with Samsung.” Samsung’s 24% share of the smartphone market doubled Apple’s 12% in the third quarter, according to tech consultancy IDC. Until the much bigger iPhone 6 hit store shelves in September, Apple had kept the iPhone screen relatively small and missed out on the popularity of Android’s ever more massive smartphones.
