On 31st March 2017, Apple announced the opening of its App Accelerator. The opening was done in Bengaluru which is Silicon valley of India. Earlier in May 2016, Apple had revealed its plan to open iOS development and design accelerator in Bengaluru.
The App accelerator would be providing the developers with all support to upskill and transform the quality, performance and design development on the iOS platform.
To get support from the Apple’s team the developers have to firstly signup with them by going through the website (https://developer.apple.com/accelerator/).
There will be presentations happening and all the Apple engineers will be providing best practices, tools and also with feedback. Once a developer is selected for the program they are allowed to talk about their app with Apple.
“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,” and “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.” said Apple SVP Philip Schiller.
Today Apple leads in innovations with iPad, iPhone, Apple tv and Apple watches. By launching the tech community program in India Apple is hoping that there will be useful applications coming out from India.
