Apple has announced the opening of a new development office in Hyderabad, India.
This new office was opened to focus on the development of maps for Apple products like the iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple watch.
"The talent here in the local area is incredible and we are looking forward to expanding our relationships and introducing more universities and partners to our platforms as we scale our operations."
The team that will work in the new building is responsible for Maps features such as 3D views, flyover, and for creating tools to help Apple maps users find places where they want to eat, shop, and explore.
One of the more recent features added to Apple maps is Transit, which offers a combination of trains, subways, buses, and walking directions for areas with robust public transit systems for more than 300 cities.
"We are experts in geospatial data and we will be hiring thousands of people from the local area to support this effort."
