For most of us, we know that once we buy a device, it will be virtually obsolete and worth next to nothing within a year.

Not for the Pope. Pope Francis’ former iPad was put up for auction in Uruguay and sold for $30,500, according to Reuters.

“The winning bid was placed by telephone, but declined to disclose the buyer’s identity or nationality,” they reported. The funds from the sale will benefit a school for the poor in Uruguay.

And this is no ordinary iPad. It is engraved with “His Holiness Francisco. Servizio Internet Vatican, March 2013.”

Reuters reports that Pope Francis is no stranger for putting up his goods for charity — “Last year, a Harley-Davidson motorbike he had received as a gift fetched 241,500 euros ($257,681).”

And while he loves tech, calling the Internet “a gift from God,” he does admit that he is not especially tech savvy. So, it must be some papal elves working those devices for him?

It’s good to be the Pope.
