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.

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.
