Some of the great joys traveling through US Airports can be founded by passing through heavily crowded lines of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) security checkpoint lines. Traditionally, electronic devices such as your beloved MacBook Pro had to be pulled from your bag and placed on the conveyor belt to be scanned. Unless you have a Tumi T-Pass Bag that allows you to quickly unzip the bag and go. Luckily, your shiny new iPads are the exception. Usually. Tuesday, the TSA ruled that iPads are allowed to remain in bags for scanning.
TSA agents might ask you to remove your iPad if they are unable to get a clear scan. That means do not cover up your iPad with tons of clothes and socks.
Another advantage of taking an iPad when traveling… but remember your wireless keyboard!
