Mobile phone critic Pope Francis meets with Apple boss Tim Cook

By Philip Pullella

VATICAN CITY (Reuters) – Pope Francis, who has often said people should limit the use of mobile phones and give preference to personal communication, granted Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook a private audience on Monday.

Cook, head of the $2.4 billion company whose iPhone has revolutionized personal communication, was on the pope’s daily audience list. As usual, the Vatican did not reveal what was discussed during the private conversation.

The 85-year-old Pope has a mixed relationship with cell phones. Last year, he interrupted his general audience when an attendee handed him a cell phone and received an urgent call from a top Vatican official.

He often patiently allows people to take selfies with him.

But he also regularly warned people not to become slaves to cell phones and other forms of technology.

“Free yourself from mobile phone addiction,” he told young people in 2019. “When you become a slave to your mobile phone, you lose your freedom.”

On other occasions, he has said that it saddens him that people use their cell phones at the table or while attending Mass.
