Former Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) CEO John Sculley is not sold on the iPhone 7. During an interview on the FOX Business Networkâs Cavuto: Coast to Coast, he discussed why he looks forward to Appleâs 10th anniversary.
âI think we are just starting to see some of the building blocks to whatâs going to happen next year, but I donât think the announcement this year is going to be a fundamental changer for Apple. Apple is a great company, itâs going to do well. I think it would be worth a lot more money a year from now-- but I think itâs largely going to be the iPhone on the 10th anniversary,â he said.
And for Sculley, one those building blocks includes the new AirPod, a wireless ear bud, that will replace the current headphones.
Meanwhile, Appleâs competitor, Samsung is currently dealing with a global recall for its Note 7 due to exploding batteries.
âIâm sure Samsung was caught by surprise of this battery problem. Whether they have a plan B for it, weâll just have to find outâ¦ The reality is, the tech world is full of uncertainties. There are cycles. There are times when the whole industry is booming and then there are other times when weâre a tweener -- when youâre between something big and something that will happen out in the futureâ¦ Thatâs just the nature of high tech,â he said.
He also discussed Hillary Clintonâs health.
âI had pneumonia one timeâ¦ It just takes all of your energy. Itâs not that sheâs critically sick, itâs that at a time when she feels that sheâs got to be everywhere, she really probably has to just lay lowâ¦ the key thing is sheâs got to be rested by the time she gets to that debate,â he said.
