The company's RMZ building in northern Bengaluru is used for its design and development accelerator, which supports engineering talent and works to develop the nation's iOS network community. The accelerator has supported thousands of local developers, and apps created by developers in India have become more important to its ecosystem, the company said last month. Over the years, the company has stated that India is one of its important markets, although it holds a minor share in the country's smartphone segment due to the high price of its products. The company is said to be considering transferring some of its production from China to India. The Expanded Technology Center suggests that the company is keen to work more closely with India's technology ecosystem and develop useful solutions for it in India.
