Sculley was also generous with his praise for Apple’s latest product. He even said the Vision Pro is “on par” with the iPhone.
“What Tim Cook and his team have done is more than extraordinary. I worked with Steve Jobs back when he was creating the Macintosh, and so I know what you go through with developing a whole new user experience.”
