Pope’s iPad fetches $30,500 at auction
MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay — An iPad that belonged to Argentina-born Pope Francis went under the hammer for $30,500 on Tuesday, autioneers in Uruguay said.
Montevideo-based auction house Castells said the winning bid was placed by telephone.
Local media threw a spotlight on the iPad last year.
The pope gave it — complete with its His Holiness Francis label and a Vatican certificate of authenticity — to an Uruguayan priest as a gift.
It ended up being donated to a local school by the priest, before being auctioned off to raise money.
