Apple head honcho Tim Cook has been on a visit to neighboring China to meet the company heads of Didi Chuxing, the ride-sharing app in which Apple has invested $1 bn. But reports have been doing the rounds that he now plans to make a surprise visit to India. However, some reports floating online hint it could have been a well-planned visit to meet PM Modi over the recent conundrum over selling refurbished iPhones.
While Delhi and Mumbai were believed to be the top contenders in the Apple Stores race, Sanchit Vir Gogia, Chief Analyst and CEO, Greyhound Research had told us how other factors such as a city with capable tech support for Apple centres and corporate offices, hints at Bengaluru, which is also known as the tech hub of India being yet another contender.
“The idea is to drive a large audience to experience the premium devices, and its not about sales. It is about an experience store wherein people and come and experience the devices and the ecosystem,” Gogia had explained.
