Wozniak, who founded tech giant Apple alongside Steve Jobs in 1976, says it is the first model of the company’s smartphone that he will not upgrade to on day one.
“I am just worried about what it provides me,” the 67-year-old told CNBC.
“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.”
Wozniak is credited as being the brains behind the company’s early success during the late 70s and early 80s, single-handedly developing the Apple 1 personal computer that launched the brand to notoriety.
He left Apple in 1985 after becoming frustrated with the direction it was taking but remained a fan of the company’s products.
His comments come despite Apple CEO Tim Cook describing the new iPhone X as “a product that will set the path for technology for the next decade”.
But after footage of Wozniak’s interview made its way onto social media site Reddit this week, viewers seemed to disagree with Cook.
“Just a thought, you don’t have to buy a new phone every year,” read one comment.
“People will break or need to upgrade after a few generations but really replacing your phone every year is extremely excessive.”
Another said: “This just in: yearly product upgrades are rarely revolutionary, even though marketing departments basically always have to say so.”
Apple’s iPhone X is set to hit shelves on Friday (Nov 3) after going on sale last week.
Apple will charge £999 for the entry-level iPhone X model, which ships with 64GB of storage built-in.
The top-of-the-line model packs 256GB of storage and costs £1,149.
