Steve Wozniak, Apple co-founder called Apple “arrogant” because Apple refused a 5″ iPhone

February 5, 2013

Ahead of the holidays in 2011, Apple (AAPL) co-founder Steve Wozniak called his former company “arrogant” because it refused to accommodate users who wanted an iPhone with a larger display. Now, according to speculation from yet another industry watcher, Wozniak may finally get his wish two years later. In a recent note to clients picked up by Barron’s, Barclays Capital analyst Ben Reitzes said we should expect two new iPhones — an iPhone 5S and a new cheaper iPhone — to launch mid-year followed by a brand new iPhone with a 5-inch display sometime ahead of the holidays.

Apple under Steve Jobs stubbornly stuck with the “3.5” display… his one size fits all” philosophy. With the iPhone 5, the 4″ display became the new 3.5″ standard. But with the growing number of users yearning for an even larger iPhone and with 10,000,000 Galaxy Notes shipped in 2012 and another ten million expected in 2013, maybe analysts are right…

Wu’s note to investors (via AppleInsider): “We believe AAPL is leaving money on the table by not participating in larger touchscreen form factors. But more importantly, we believe AAPL needs to reclaim high-end leadership as that is what brand is about. Sure, iOS, iTunes and the App Store are great, but it is clear that many customers want larger screens.”

Now, Tim Cook is certainly his own man and guess that anything is possible. We have yet to see whether Cook is married to the 4″ display form factor because the iPhone 5, after all, is a Steve Jobs product.
