— -- Pope Francis, who has famously said he doesn't know how to use a computer, met today with one of the most prominent techies in the world: Apple CEO Tim Cook.

While it's unknown what was on the agenda, a photo shows the two men exchanging gifts today during a private audience at the Vatican that took place around 11:30 a.m. local time.

The meeting comes a week after the pontiff met with Alphabet Chairman Eric Schmidt. Alphabet is the recently formed parent company of Google.

A lack of technological expertise hasn't stopped Francis from becoming the most high-tech pope ever. A Google+ hangout last year put the pope in front of a webcam and allowed him to answer questions from children around the world.

The pope also tweets and has been happy to indulge quite a few visitors to the Vatican on selfie requests.
