Apple Inc is set to open its Technology Development Centre in Hyderabad. This would be its first development center outside the US, and is expected to create around 4,500 jobs. Apple will invest $25 million to set up the technology development center in Hyderabad, and is expected to be operational by June this year.
The new development centre will be built on 250,000 square foot at Tishman Speyer’s WaveRock facility at Hyderabad’s IT corridor at a cost of $25 million alongside other IT giant such as Infosys, Wipro, Microsoft, and Cognizant among others.
Apple plans to develop maps and make them available in its iPhones and Mac systems at this new development centre. It is very likely that Apple will hire locals to focus on its Maps development hence, creating new job opportunities for talented Indian youths.
One of the most successful initiative of Modi government, i.e ‘Make in India’ will surely get boost by this move from Apple and will attract other tech giants to consider India for their Innovation centers in the very near future.
