Tim Cook had visited India last year and had announced a startup accelerator in Bengaluru and a development centre in Hyderabad. Today Apple has officially announced the opening of its App Accelerator in Bengaluru.
The main aim of the accelerator will be to provide special support and tools to developers and to improve their skills to transform the design, quality and performance of their apps for iOS.
Phil Schiller, senior vice president of worldwide marketing at Apple said, “We are impressed by the great entrepreneurial spirit in India, and are excited to provide a platform for these developers to share their innovations with customers around the world. In just the first few weeks, we’ve already seen some incredible developers here at the App Accelerator Bengaluru, including Practo and Reliance Games, create innovative apps that can meet the needs of customers in India and around the world."
The App Accelerator is open for all iOS developers in India through a sign-up process. According to the company, each week experts from Apple will brief close to 500 developers as well as provide one-on-one app reviews and proper analysis. The accelerator will provide resources and guidance around Apple’s programming language 'Swift' which is used to create apps for iOS, Apple TV and the Apple Watch.
This move will help Apple’s team to work, teach and inspire developers of this startup breeding city and others to hone their skills in a way that will help them work around or build innovative products around iOS, Mac and other Apple software.
