Apple last week made several executive changes to the company, including creating a new position related to iPhone software. AppleInsider reports that Scott Forstall, who previously held the position of vice president of iPhone software, was promoted to Senior Vice President of iPhone Software, a new position that will have Forstall reporting directly to CEO Steve Jobs. Prior to the iPhone, Forstall held the position of Vice President of Platform Experience and was responsible for several releases of Mac OS X. He also played a major role during Apple’s iPhone Software Roadmap event. Along with Forstall’s promotion, the company also named Bob Mansfield Senior Vice President of Mac Hardware Engineering.
