Apple's Steve Wozniak Spurns iPhone X
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak will not be standing in line to buy the iPhone X on release day.

(CCM) — The iPhone X will be the first Apple smartphone that company co-founder Steve Wozniak has not stood in line to purchase on the day it is released, according to a CNBC report.

Talking at the Money 20/20 conference in Las Vegas, Wozniak said: "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. 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."

Wozniak added that when it comes to the Face ID facial recognition system which has replaced Apple's Touch ID fingerprint recognition technology on the iPhone X, he is skeptical that it will work the way that it is suppose to.

Apple's iPhone 8 accounts for a smaller proportion of the company's sales than the iPhone 7 did when it was released last year. So Apple will be hoping that this is because consumers are waiting for the opening of pre-order sales of the iPhone X on October 27, 2017, rather than falling interest in the iPhone product line in general.
