    Any info on airport screener s or screening,do you have to take the Ipad out of your bag and hand it to them or just let it go through the machine.

    Haven't had a problem when flying either way from Canada to the US, I just left it in my backpack and it was sent through the X-Ray machine like anything else.

    Cheers

    On my recent trip from NY to L.A. and back I had an iPad in a small shoulder bag packed inside a carry-on with wheels and a handle. They had me take the iPad out of the carry-on but I could keep it inside it's own shoulder bag. They said that as long as it was separated from the rest of the luggage it would be fine. I did not have to take it out of it's bag.
    On the way back they took the iPad bag out of the grey tray where the shoes and belt and jacket, etc. were, and told me they were running it separately through the machine. It was fine then.
    Funny too, I could see and hear the guys checking the screens. One guy smiled and pointed to the screen, "there's an iPad!"

    I left mine in my backpack and same with my wife both times we have traveled with ours. No issues. And not even the sleeve backpack that is TSA safe...like inside a sleeve, inside a regular back pack.

    But someone on here reported that when traveling through (I think it was Germany) they treated it as a computer.

    I don't really think there is anything set in stone.

    PS - Why is this in the iPad OS section?:confused:

    Because I posted it there I guess,I'm human I made a misteak. However I received some very good feed-back, more than I can say about some of my other posts.

    When we designed our checkpoint friendly carbon fiber cases I spent a great deal of time going throught the TSA guidelines for designers. The main thing (at least for laptops), they need a complete unobstructed x-ray of the laptop. I.E, no metal covering any part of the electronics being viewed.

    I've had to do a lot of flying because of my summer job, but never once had problems with getting the iPad through security. Even though the TSA requires me to take out my laptop, my iPad can stay in the bag and all is well.

    I always leave mine in my carry on. Haven't had to take it out yet. Maybe attention is placed on my laptop, which I still travel with and must take out for TSA screening.
