'Steve Jobs Would Never': What Web Users Think The Late Apple Co-Founder Would Hate About iPhone 5, iOS 6

Posted: Updated:

"Steve Jobs never would have… [insert problem here]."

This is what the internet is screaming (both in jest and sincerity) after the recent release of the highly-anticipated iPhone 5 and iOS 6 software. The above "never" phrase is now turning into an anthem of Apple fanboy disappoint, as it's loudly proclaimed in the virtual worlds of Twitter and Facebook.

Because of the untimely passing in 2011 of Apple co-founder and creative genius Steve Jobs, many wondered if the tech giant would be able to hold its footing in an increasingly Android-filled market -- and according to social media, the verdict is still out.

But some customers and critics have been quick to remind anyone who will listen that not everything Jobs touched turned to gold. Remember NeXT hardware? Nope, probably not. In fact, the Apple CEO had several failed ventures throughout his lifetime. Yet his mindset remained idealistic. "If I try my best and fail, well, I’ve tried my best," Jobs said in a CNNMoney/Fortune interview in 1998, per The Next Web.
