Apple has opened its App Accelerator in Bangalore which will provide specialised support for developers on Apple’s iOS platform, the company announced on Friday.

Through this, Apple experts will lead briefings and provide one-on-one app reviews for developers every week. The accelerator will also provide support and guidance on Swift, Apple’s programming language for Macintosh-based platforms, iOS, Apple TV and Apple Watch.

“In just the first few weeks, we’ve already seen some incredible developers here at the App Accelerator Bengaluru create innovative apps that can meet the needs of customers in India and around the world,” said Philip Schiller, senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.

Apple’s chief executive Tim Cook had announced to launch a startup accelerator for the iOS developer community in India almost a year ago.

“Apple’s commitment to the developer community through the opening of the App Accelerator is a tremendous investment in the future of India’s digital economy,” said NASSCOM president R Chandrashekhar.
