    yes of course, you have to put ipad out from your carry on bag and let them scan it.
    as same as you had to do with your laptop.

    I've had mixed experiences. Early on, I asked and was told it could stay in my bag and that's usually what I do.

    I've gone through TSA screening about 20 times with my iPad in my bag and two times, they've needed to rescreen my carry on. In both cases, I had more stuff in there than normal and they said they couldn't see everything they needed to. The last time, which happed a few weeks ago, the screener said that it was because I had a bag of Trader Joe's peanut butter filled pretzels that blocked the view. On that return trip, I had everything else in my bag and had no problems with screening.

    So if you travel light, you should have no problems.

    I fly every week and have found that the TSA is very inconsistent with their requirements (big shock). For the most part they say you don't have to take it out but I have found my security checks go smoother but just removing from my carry on bag.

    When I travel I always take my iPad out because when I don't they always hassle me about it. I would take it out just to save yourself the trouble of waiting for re screening

    Yes - it's always better to err on the side of safety because otherwise, as the other poster said, they want to shake you down - they put the iPad back through the scanner and you have to wait and, of course, this always happens when you're late for a connection.

    Plus, I've found that the security personnel are always quite interested in an iPad - yes, after all this time, there are people out there who haven't seen one and are quite interested in having a 'demonstration'. I reckon I've sold a few over the last few months.....

    I've never taken mine out when flying. Last week when I flew the pinhead wanted to look inside my camera lenses (I had four in my bag with an IPad) because according to her it was dark inside them. Next time I will have to remember to ask the little man who lives inside my lens to turn his flashlight on for them.

    They're just like any other person taking orders from the real pinheads who are making the wool-over-our-eyes policies.

    We did get a laugh one time when traveling from Ethiopia, and their security agents made my friend open her Pelican lenses case. We later found out that it was because her camera locks look like rifle rounds in the scanner. Lesson learned on that one!
