The year 2016 started off on a promising note for Apple. During his maiden visit to India, Mr. Tim Cook, the chief executive officer, announced the setting up of an app development centre in Bengaluru and another one in Hyderabad for maps. The news has now been confirmed officially. The facility will start production from next April, according to industry sources.
Mr. Cook met the Indian Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi earlier this year and discussed sensitive issues relating to cyber-security, data encryption, the possibility of fabricating the production in the country and extracting India’s young talent. The Apple CEO appreciated the breadth of young talent in India with significant skills that Apple would like to acquire and the immense potential for ‘app-development’ in the country.
