Apple CEO Tim Cook's visit to Turkey this week has been in the works for a while now. It coincides with the opening of the company's first retail store in the country. However, during his visit, Cook also has plans to meet with Turkish President Abdullah Gul on Tuesday.
Word has it that Cook will be discussing an initiative that could bring millions of iPads to children in Turkey's schools, according to AppleInsider. The deal is said to be worth as much as $4 billion.
The meeting between Cook and Gul wouldn't be the first time Apple has met with the Turkish president. According to AppleInsider, Apple's vice president of education John Couch was said to have discussed the FATIH Project with Gul last year.
Apple has been expanding its Turkish market as of late. In October, the company launched Turkey's first online Apple Store and its new 21,500-square-foot retail store will open this week in Istanbul's Zorlu Center.
CNET contacted Apple for comment. We'll update the story when we get more information.
