The motherboard to his monitor, the Dean to his Torvill, the affable calm that kept Steve Job's infamous and rampaging ego in check, company co-founder Steve Wozniak is an OG Apple fanboy; a man who single-handedly built the brand's first computer in 1976 and is well known for buying every single iPhone on launch day.

With Apple's glistening, all-screen £1,000 flagship 10th anniversary phone going on sale this Friday (3 November), you won't find Steve Wozniak camping out for an iPhone X, because he doesn't really feel it adds that much.

"I'm just worried about what it provides me," Wozniak told CNBC at the Money20/20 conference in Las Vegas. "I'd rather wait and watch that one, and I'm happy with my iPhone 8…which is the same as the iPhone 7, which is the same as the iPhone 6."

Somewhere deep in the bowels of Silicon Valley, inside the marble and glass cocoon of an Apple innovation centre, an executive leans back on his white Eames chair and winces, mouthing "For f*ck's sake, Steve."

Wozniak added that he was also skeptical about the reliability of the new face ID technology, which does away with Apple's pass code and touch ID systems from previous iPhone generations.

You could probably just ask Apple to try one out, Steve. We reckon they might say yes.

Just a thought.
