An iPad that belonged to Argentina-born Pope Francis went under the hammer for $30,500 on Tuesday, auctioneers 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.
