This Feature Of The iPhone X Is So Annoying, Even Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak Hates It

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak says he’s pretty happy with his iPhone X, except for one feature that just completely gets on his nerves; the power button.

At the Nordic Business Forum in Stockholm, Wozniak said he doesn’t like how the button does different things based on how many times you click it, according to Business Insider.

“I like things to be as simple and understandable and direct as possible,” he said. “If you push it and hold it, it does different things; and if you double-click it, it does another thing; if you five click it, it does another thing.”

Apple took a chance with the iPhone X last year, showcasing a completely new design that got rid of the traditional TouchID-enabled home button. Sure, this gave the device a cleaner look, and more screen real estate to work with, but it also meant Apple had to figure out other ways to let users control smartphone functions while multitasking.

As such, clicking the power button once turns the screen on or off. A double click activates Apple Pay, the company’s digital payment service, while tapping both volume buttons simultaneously now takes a screenshot.

Wozniak, for his part, believes that’s a failing on Apple’s part, and something they should change in iPhone models going forward
