From William Gallagher's "Tim Cook granted special audience with Pope Francis" posted Monday on AppleInsider:
Pope Francis had a private meeting with Apple CEO Tim Cook, as the Apple executive European tour continues.
Cook's tour has so far seen him make unannounced stops in the UK, Germany, and in Italy where he was awarded an honorary degree. He has now visited Vatican City, where he has an audience with Pope Francis.
Pope Francis has famously warned against the dangers of becoming "a slave to your mobile phone." He also said in a 2015 Google Hangout that he did not know how to use a computer.
My take: Send that Pope an iPhone!
