Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple has recently said that he is looking at the business in India and further added, “We set a quarterly revenue record and grew very strong double digits year over year and so we feel very good about how we performed”.
“That’s despite the headwinds that we talked about. India is a hugely exciting market for us and a major focus. We brought the online store there in 2020. We will soon bring Apple Retail there,” Cook announced in February.
He said that Apple did fairly well through Covid in India.
“That’s the reason why we are investing there by bringing retail there, bringing the online store there and putting out a significant amount of energy there. I’m very bullish on India,” the CEO added.
