Apple will open three Apple Stores in India “within the next 18 months,” according to a report from FactorDaily. The retail stores will open in Bangalore, Delhi, and Mumbai, and each store will reportedly be about 10,000 square feet. Apple’s start-up accelerator in the country will “incubate ideas mostly around applications built for iOS,” and Apple CEO Tim Cook will reportedly announce the incubator during his trip to India this week. After its push into China in recent years, Apple is now making an effort to better connect with the consumer base in India, a country which only trails China in population. A recent report noted that Apple partner Foxconn is looking to finalize a site for a new iPhone manufacturing plant in the country.
