The co-founder of Apple has claimed that the new iPhone X is just the same as the three previous models of the smartphone.
Steve Wozniak, who founded Apple back in 1976 alongside Steve Jobs, has confirmed that what everyone thinks about new iPhones is indeed true.
In an interview with CNBC, Wozinak admitted that there aren’t many differences between the different models and so there is no point upgrading to the new iPhone X on day one.
Say hello to the future. iPhone X.

The 67-year-old told CNBC:
I am just worried about what it provides me.
I’d rather wait and watch that one. I’m happy with my iPhone 8, which is the same as the iPhone 7, which is the same as the iPhone 6, to me.
I think I will watch other people in this case.
For some reason, the iPhone X is going to be the first iPhone I didn’t — on day one — upgrade to. But my wife will, so I’ll be close enough to see it.
Although he has criticised Apple for not making enough changes on the newer models, it does sound like Wozniak will be getting the new iPhone X soon enough.

Credited as being the the brains behind Apple’s early success during the late 1970’s and early 1980’s, Wozniak single-handedly developed the Apple 1 personal computer that helped the company make a name for itself.
After becoming frustrated by the direction the company was taking, he left Apple in 1985.
However, he is clearly still a fan of their products and appears to hold no grudges.
Wozniak also admitted that he was sceptical how the Face ID feature would work and rightfully so.
The feature, which is Apple going full Black Mirror, is installed on the latest model and will recognise users’ faces.
However, at the launch event for the iPhone X, Apple attempted to show off their new feature but things didn’t exactly go to plan.
Apple’s senior vice present, Craig Federighi, stepped up to the stage to tell audiences how easy it is to use the Face ID function and show off how secure the phone would be as a result.
However, when he attempted to demo the feature in front of the crowded audience he was left startled as he was told to enter the code for the phone because the Face ID function had failed.

Of course this could have just been a simple technical error because the phone had just restarted but still, how humiliating for Apple.
Despite this thousands are still excited to get their hands on the new iPhone which has many intriguing features including OLED display, a lack of a home button and best of all, wireless charge.
However, if you fancy one you will have to fork out a massive amount of money with the most expensive version of the iPhone X costing £1,149.
I think I will stick to my cheaper and functional iPhone 5.
