Apple Co-Founder Criticizes iPhone 5 Design

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is not happy with the direction of Apple. He has called the company "arrogant' while speaking out against the iPhone 5's design in a recent interview with Tech Central.

Wozniak says that Apple is arrogant for refusing to make the iPhone 5 larger. The phone is a bit smaller than competitors' phones – like Samsung’s Galaxy S III. Wozniak thinks this is a big mistake.

"Part of me wishes that Apple had not been so kind of arrogant and feeling we’re the only one with the right clue," he told TechCentral "I wish they had made a small and a large version of the iPhone; that would have been great for me. Keep the aspect ratio the same, horizontal and vertical the same, but just grow it in the other way."

"I think Apple tricked itself and said 'oh you could reach everything with one thumb' and I don’t see anybody having any trouble using the larger screens," he continued. "Apple said that as a defensive move because when the other phones came out they all had larger screens. Apple is now trying to run with that defense, saying ‘we are right’ and really there’s a mix of people. Not all people want the same thing and a lot of people really like the big screens."
