Apple iPhone XR
Apple has been a leader in areas such as touch ID, facial ID, and easy payment

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak says he is optimistic about the future of the company as it sets to digress from a range of projects outside of its core iPhones market.

He however said Apple wants a foldable phone but emphasized that “Apple has been a leader for quite a long time in areas such as touch ID, facial ID, and easy payment with the phone.

“We’re not the leader in areas like the folding phone, and that worries me because I really want a folding phone.”

Wozinak was referring to foldable phones that competitions like Samsung Electronics Co. and Huawei Technologies Co. recently introduced.

Apple’s rivals have taken on Apple’s high-price strategy, pricing their folding phones as much as $1,980 and about $2,600, respectively. 

Apple recently reported that iPhone revenue declined 15 percent in the fiscal first quarter from a year earlier.

Wozniak is optimistic about Apple’s future, with the company branching out in a range of projects outside of its core iPhones market. However, he still prefers “my Roku” to Apple TV.

Wozniak co-founded Apple with Steve Jobs and helped build the first prototypes of Apple computers. A bitcoin advocate, last year he joined a little-known crypto start-up called Equi Capital.
