CUPERTINO, Calif., Nov. 18 (UPI) -- Steve Wozniak, co-founder of U.S. high-tech giant Apple said Android-based phones would someday beat Apple's iOS phones in the smartphone market.

Wozniak said the Android operating system has been inconsistent, but the quality would improve. In the meantime, "Android phones have more features," he said in an interview in the Netherlands, PCWorld reported Thursday.

"When it comes to quality, iPhone is leading," he said.

In the long run, however, Wozniak said Android-based phone would catch up on quality and the iOS-based iPhone would end up as an also-ran, similar to Apple's computer business that runs a distant second behind Windows computers.
