TSA Airport Rules For iPads

New Device, New TSA Rules

Good news, iPad owners. In most cases, you won't have to remove your iPad from your bag when going through security checkpoints in airports. According to the TSA, there are several reasons for the allowance: since iPads are much thinner than traditional laptops, they're easier to see on the scanner. Plus, those toting an iPad are less likely to have a ton of accessories like external hard drives, additional wires, and other accessories that can complicate screenings.

Of course, the TSA does reserve the right to ask you to remove the device, but they say they'll be communicating the new iPad policy to all screeners immediately. Here's hoping the security agents recognize the new gadgets right away . . . remember the MacBook Air airport security debacle in 2008?
