ROME (AP) — Apple has chosen Naples, Italy, to establish Europe's first iOS App Development Center.

Apple CEO Tim Cook on Friday met in Rome with Italian Premier Matteo Renzi, who is delighted that the center's creation could mean hundreds of jobs for Italy's underdeveloped south.

The center would give students practical skills and training in developing the apps.

Cook also met with Pope Francis during his Rome visit.
