Pope Francis' iPad Fetches $30,500 at Auction

The holiest iPad was purchased by mystery bidder.

Castells, the Uruguayan auction house that handled the bidding, told ABC News the pontiff gave the iPad to a Uruguayan priest with the hope that he would find a way to do something good with the tablet.

The priest donated the iPad to the Francisco de Paysandu high school, which will receive the $30,500 windfall from the holiest iPad.

Castells declined to disclose who purchased the device or the nationality of the winning bidder.

Aside from tweeting and participating in two Google+ Hangouts, Pope Francis has also proclaimed the Internet to be a "gift from God."

Let's just hope he remembered to disable his iCloud before handing over that iPad.
