Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has revealed 'Steve Jobs' isn't factually accurate

Danny Boyle's 'Steve Jobs' isn't factually accurate, according to Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.

The 65-year-old computer pioneer has revealed that sizeable amounts of the new movie are made up - but he still found it "enjoyable" to watch.

He shared: "Everything in the movie didn't happen. Every scene that I'm in, I wasn't talking to Steve Jobs at those events."

Despite this, Wozniak endorsed the director's decision to be creative with the plot.

He told Bloomberg TV: "It's the artistic freedom to make a movie that is enjoyable.

"We had meetings on multiple occasions ... tiny, tiny bits that were somewhere else kind of got used by him and painted by him in a different way and a different place."

Meanwhile, Michael Fassbender - who stars as Steve Jobs in the film - revealed recently that he's "not a very techie person".

What's more, the 38-year-old star also admitted to feeling "very nervous" about accepting the role because he didn't know anything about the American businessman.

He said: "I'm not a very techie person. I use all the Apple products, but I had no real insight into him.

"I was nervous. I was very nervous. It was going to be a big challenge, the volume of words alone."
