NEW DELHI:  

Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook met Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi on Saturday to launch a new version of the Indian leader’s eponymous app aimed at pushing the technology giant’s expansion plans. Apple currently does not have any store in India and sells phones via third-party retailers such as Vodafone and Airtel. It has, however, applied for permission to open shops. Cook used the meeting to raise the possibilities of manufacturing and retailing in India as well as tapping its software expertise for app development. He also announced investments including an app design centre in the southern technology hub of Bangalore and a mapping development office in Hyderabad.
