Steve Wozniak Interview iPhone 6

It’s amazing how quickly an iPhone with a big display can win someone back. Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak, who in the past has not been shy about criticizing Apple products while at the same time professing his love for rival products such as Android and the Microsoft Surface, now says that he’s getting an iPhone 6 and is dumping all of the Android phones he once praised.

IT’S NOT JUST WOZ: Diehard Android fan explains how Apple convinced him to buy the iPhone 6

CNET points us to a new video uploaded by TMZ in which Woz gets asked what he thinks of the new iPhone 6. Woz starts off by saying he loves the new mobile payments system that Apple is implementing and that he’s excited that Apple is finally making a phone with a bigger display. In fact, Woz is so excited about this, he says that he “got rid of all my Android phones” once he got a look at the iPhone 6.

The iPhone 6’s larger display seems to be getting a lot of interest from Android users who previously both devices such as the Samsung Galaxy Note because they liked having larger displays. Add in the fact that Apple has added support for third-party keyboards in iOS 8 that give you more customization options than before and you can see how the iPhone 6 would be more potentially appealing to many Android users than any other iPhone released so far.

The full video of Woz talking about the iPhone 6 follows below.
