New Delhi: Apple Inc Chief Executive Tim Cook will visit India today. Time Cook is expected to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and some business leaders in India.
Apple CEO's visit comes at a crucial time as Apple seeks new growth markets such as India after posting its first-ever decline in iPhone sales.
Cook, who is visiting China after announcing a $1 billion investment in Chinese ride-hailing app Didi Chuxing, will fly to India on Tuesday in his first official visit to the country as the head of the U.S. technology company, one of the sources said.
Apple is looking to set up its first retail outlet in India, where it only has about a 2 percent market share. But its sales there surged 56 percent in the first three months of this year, driven mainly by cheaper older-generation devices such as the iPhone 5S.
