Apple says it is planning to open an iOS App Development Center in Naples, Italy. The facility will provide training for mobile development professionals.
"Europe is home to some of the most creative developers in the world and we're thrilled to be helping the next generation of entrepreneurs in Italy get the skills they need for success," said Apple CEO Tim Cook. "The phenomenal success of the App Store is one of the driving forces behind the more than 1.4 million jobs Apple has created in Europe and presents unlimited opportunities for people of all ages and businesses of all sizes across the continent."
The company added that it plans to open additional iOS App Development Centers in other countries, but it did not say where or when.
