Apple wants to develop and to create new products that will bring delight to its consumers. The tech giant is expanding its technology by opening a center for developing its software and devices it offers.
The tech giant just opened its iOS center on Naples, Italy with 200 applicants. Next year, Apple will open another iOS design and development in India.
Apple's Latest Project
The idea about Apple's center for development was formed by CEO Tim Cook and Italian Prime Minister, Matteo Renzi, last January. Renzi wants to focus on the interest and investment in the southern part of Italy.
Cook praised Renzi's bold move for Italy and liked the "entrepreneurial spirit" of Naples. Apple will reportedly help in contributing the big change in the southern part of Italy. It started with 4,000 aspirants around the world, only 200 students were accepted in Apple academy in San Giovanni a Teduccio, a suburb in Naples, as per The Guardian.
According to The Verge, each student will be studying at Apple center for nine months and will have the latest iPhone, iPad and MacBook. The course is still open for applicants, but the priority of the tech giant is Italians.
Apple's Expansion With Its Center
According to Apple Insider, the tech giant will be accommodating 400 students in the academy by 2017.
"Europe is home to some of the most creative developers in the world and we're thrilled to be helping the next generation of entrepreneurs in Italy get the skills they need for success," Cook said as he announced the project earlier in the year. "The phenomenal success of the App Store is one of the driving forces behind the more than 1.4 million jobs Apple has created in Europe and presents unlimited opportunities for people of all ages and businesses of all sizes across the continent."
Apple also said that the App Store's success opened 75,000 jobs for the Italians. Apple's Chief Financial Officer Luca Maestri was very thrilled when he heard that he will be working with University of Naples Federico II for launching the center in Italy.
