Happy birthday, Apple Italia!

Apple Italy celebrate his first 40 years.
Yes, forty, you read that right.
In fact, the American company officially landed in the Bel Paese in May 1982, with a small sales team.
Since then, Apple Italy has grown a lot as has its businesses. Think, for example, of the first Developer Academy in Europe, the one launched in Naples in 2016 with the aim of training the new generation of developers. A particularly prolific generation, which today, thanks to its creations, animates and populates the App Store.

And so Apple has decided to celebrate its first 40 years in Italy by giving space to them, to the developerswith the Today tab which for the occasion collects some of the most popular Italian applications and which, at the same time, also demonstrate an excellent use of the services and technologies that members of the Apple Developer Program have access to.
