Within the next six months, we plan to run our business in India on 100 percent renewable energy, we're expanding and developing features for Indian customers including support for Hindi dictation and new language keyboards on iOS 11, support for local traffic in maps and up-to-date cricket scores and stats by simply asking Siri,"

Apple’s CEO Tim Cook also made a special mention of how rapidly 4G network investment began rolling out during the last quarter in India. “They’re moving at a speed that I have not seen in any other country in the world once they were started, and it is truly impressive,” he said.
