    For a person who is usually prolific in his views regarding Apple products, its strange we haven't heard much from the WOZ after the official release of IOS 7.

    Maybe he doesn't like it?

    I've seen him be vocal about what he doesn't like about Apple stuff, too. So he probably just hasn't been asked yet.

    You can ask him on Twitter: https://twitter.com/stevewoz :)

    He got the new iPhone, as stated on his twitter. So I guess he doesn't mind it.

    Woz is more the hardware guy, he doesn't have much deep feelings about software.

    Everyone doesn't care so much that they simply can't contain themselves from posting about things they don't care about. The irrationality almost hurts.

    Ok, lets ask it this way.
    Has anyone read any positive comments by the Woz regarding IOS 7 ?

    Did he have to wait 3 weeks?

    Woz's personal likes and dislikes about Apple products are irrelevant to me

    I dont really think that is what the OP was interested in.

    But perhaps of some curiosity to the OP and some other users.

    He probably doesn't, I mean, he's a grown man, not a 10 year old girl. :D

    He was "the hardware guy" 30+ years ago.

    He has said that he likes Android more than iOS, so that is a thought on software.

    As such, I'd doubt he has much interest in modern hardware, it's not the same these days if you cannot fix your computer with a hammer and a soldering iron.

    Woz, while a pioneer in his time really doesn't need to comment on today's designs. Only apple fanatics that almost view him and Jobs as deities would put much weight into his thoughts now.

    But to the OP he hasn't said anything about ios. I don't think he feels the need to comment publicly on every apple product.

    I marked you up. Totally agree. BUT. I can understand why the question would be asked. so to answer it, I hadn't thought of that. Wonder what he thinks. in more of a reflection.

    I honestly don't like the guy. As for the question, I don't think he hates it or he wouldn't shut up about it.

    He was clapping (I think) and seemed content during the WWDC introduction of iOS 7. That's about the closest to his views as we have. He seems fine with it..

    I think he would like the new features. He was complaining about iOS 6's lack of features and restrictive design, so he probably thinks iOS 7 is in the right direction.

    No, Apple doesn't care what Steve Wozniak says now.

    It's hard to convey a rhetorical question in writing. :) I totally agree with you, though.

    He had a few positive comments about iOS 7 at the beginning of this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qeP-y20lkkI
