Peter Mulligan says Apple won’t make changes to the iPhone X as it prepares for its big event later this month.
Mulligan, Apple’s vice president of global product marketing, said that the iPhone’s OLED display and curved edge are still the company’s best selling features.
“It will continue to be the best-selling feature of the iPhone 8 and 9,” he said.
However, he said that it is possible for the phone to be improved with a new display.
“That’s a real possibility,” he told Recode.
But he said there is no imminent plans to bring an OLED screen to the phones, which he called a “horrible” design decision.
In addition, Mulligan said that he would not expect Apple to change the way it delivers updates.
He also said that Apple does not believe that the phone will be able to meet consumers’ needs for speed and convenience, and that it does not support a large data plan, which it does support in its previous iPhones.
The iPhone X is expected to be unveiled at an event in Las Vegas later this year.
