Apple building development site in India
Apple will be investing \\$25 million into a development centre in Hyderabad, India, the Economic Times reported on Tuesday. It will be the third such site for Apple outside of the US, with the company also having development centres in Brazil and Italy.
"We've been investing to expand our operations in India and are thrilled to have passionate customers and a vibrant developer community across the country," an Apple spokesperson said, adding that around 150 employees will be hired for the centre.
Apple investing in India comes as no surprise, as the country, home to over 1.3 billion, is entering a technological boom period with smartphone and Internet markets growing at staggering rates.
