Steve Wozniak: Apple could make an Android iPhone

Apple co-founder reckons there's nothing stopping Apple from creating an iAndroid phone

iAndroid phone, anyone?

Steve Wozniak, Apple's co-founder, thinks it's a good idea. The ever-outspoken Woz has conjured up another PR nightmare for Apple, telling Wired that he'd like to see an Apple phone running Google's Android OS.

"There’s nothing that would keep Apple out of the Android market as a secondary phone market," Wozniak says. "We could compete very well. People like the precious looks of stylings and manufacturing that we do in our product compared to the other Android offerings. We could play in two arenas at the same time."

Of course, Wozniak isn't involved in the day-to-day running of Apple – which means that his suggestions are likely to fall on deaf ears at Cupertino, while Apple's boffins beaver away on iOS 8 and the iPhone 6.

It's not the first time Woz has lauded Apple's rivals, either; in a recent chat with Stuff, he sang the praises of Samsung's line-up, saying that "the Galaxy Note 3, the S4 and S3 were all very good phones," before noting that "I actually kind of like Windows Phone 8, appearance-wise."

While Apple might not be planning an Android phone any time soon, there are plenty of Android features that it could poach for its next version of iOS – check out a few of them here.
