Joswiak highlighted the significance of iOS as a platform, emphasizing its pivotal role in driving the global app economy. “iOS is one of the largest platforms… it’s really what has driven the app economy around the world. There is a need to fulfill development requirements within companies and within the user base within India,” he explained.
