“Chief Minister KCR and Tim Cook will inaugurate the facility tomorrow. State IT Minister K T Ramarao will also be present during the function,” sources said.

Apple may use the facility as mapping centre for its applications, they added.

A spokesperson of Apple said the entire event will be kept as a private affair and media will not be allowed.
