Steve Wozniak not impressed with ultra-thin iPad Air, wants a 256GB model


Apple unveiled the all-new iPad Air yesterday, which is 20% thinner, 28% lighter and comes with features such as the faster A7 chip with M7 coprocessor, support for more number of LTE bands and faster Wi-Fi thanks to MIMO 802.11n Wi-Fi support.

However, that hasn’t impressed Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple, as he was hoping Apple would offer an iPad Air with a 256GB storage option.

Steve Wozniak revealed this while speaking at the Apps World conference in London. TechRadar reports from the Apps World:

“I am constantly following the gadget world but I was on a plane and missed all of the keynote but when I finally took a look at the devices, the iPads didn’t hit my needs,” he explained.

Talking about the iPad Air he noted: “Yes it’s thinner but I wanted storage. I don’t have broadband at home, so I carry all my personal media in the iPad. So I was hoping Apple has a 256GB iPad.

“So I emailed my wife and said I didn’t want one of those.”

It’s always great to hear from Woz. Let’s hope Apple can make a special 256GB version of iPad Air just for him, or as TechRadar suggests they can at least get his broadband fixed. I had to read “I don’t have broadband at home” multiple times just to ensure I was reading it right. That’s quite bizarre.
