In a strategic move, Apple continues its commitment to India, following the launch of two retail stores in Mumbai and Delhi in 2023. The tech giant has now officially opened its new office at Minsk Square, Bengaluru, further expanding its corporate footprint in the country, which already includes locations in Bengaluru, Mumbai, Hyderabad, and Gurugram.
This state-of-the-art office spans 15 floors, designed to accommodate up to 1,200 employees. Noteworthy features include dedicated lab spaces, collaborative areas, wellness facilities, and the renowned Caffe Macs. Apple’s Bengaluru teams are engaged in diverse aspects of the company’s operations, covering software, hardware, services, IS&T, operations, customer support, and more.
In adherence to Apple’s commitment to a carbon-neutral footprint since 2020, the interior of the new office is crafted using locally sourced materials such as stone, wood, and fabric for walls and flooring, complemented by the inclusion of native plants. Operating entirely on renewable energy since 2018, the office aims to achieve a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum rating, representing the highest level of LEED certification.
An Apple spokesperson expressed enthusiasm about the expansion, stating, “Apple is thrilled to expand in India with our new office in the heart of Bengaluru. This dynamic city is already home to many of our talented teams, including software engineering, hardware technologies, operations, customer support, and more. Like everything we do at Apple, this workspace is created to foster innovation, creativity, and connection. It’s an amazing space for our teams to collaborate.”
Having been a part of the Indian landscape for over 25 years, Apple boasts nearly 3,000 employees and maintains close collaborations with Indian suppliers, contributing to the support of hundreds of thousands of jobs across the country.
In recent years, India has become a key focus for Apple, witnessing a surge in iPhone sales. The company is further solidifying its roots by expanding its manufacturing footprint in the country. Notably, in 2023, Apple began production of the iPhone 15 in India even before its global debut, marking a significant stride in its manufacturing capabilities in the region.
