Interesting if true.
Edit: I found this link on iMore http://www.imore.com/tsa-will-require-devices-be-charged-international-us-bound-flights which cites NBC News as the source.
I can see it on laptops that are big and if gutted out can hold lots of things inside.
But how much can you fit inside an iPhone or galaxy shell of a cellphone?
Uncharged devices, not just iPhones. Your thread title is deceiving and inaccurate and you should be ashamed of yourself.
interesting. so i cant get on the airplane if my phone just ran out of batteries because i was using it waiting for my delayed flight.
Why wouldn't wait in the gate area past the security checkpoint where it wouldn't matter?
It'll be funny if TSA agents shake the iPhone and hear "rattling noises" coming from the camera and will assume it's a bomb.
Than apple would need to release a statement to acknowledge rattling is normal and not a ticking bomb.
Damn I must look extra suspicious with the three cell phones I keep in my bag. And usually one of them is out of batteries.
Unless you forget the cable, you can easily prove it works by plugging it in.
It's not uncharged but inoperative devices that are disallowed.
Well that sucks and and cause some problems. But I see where the concern comes in. It would be pretty easy to open up a phone take out the battery and jam a bomb in. But what if my phone **** the bed? Then what? I want to take it home but it doesn't work... Now what?
I read this earlier about cell phones in gen. Not just iPhones.
Very weird policy
Its gotta be a tiny bomb if its the size of an internal iphone battery.
Put it in your checked luggage. Should be easy to do since most people who fly internationally usually stay for extended time and check in baggages.
Enough explosives to bring down an airliner if properly placed I suppose.
That said a friend and I found out how sensitive some of the equipment is at airports, at least in the states.
I have an army issued backpack I used to use to transport small caliber firearms and ammunition. Fast forward a year or so after I decided to use the backpack for traveling and it sent their machines into freak out mode. After a search my friend and I were sent through scanners. I went through without issue however watching the monitor as my buddy went through it picked out directly on his body where his insulin pump connected (pump was disconnected and sent through a different scanner). It's 99.9% plastic with a microscopic needle thing (I've had bigger splinters) meanwhile ignoring buttons and zippers on his clothing.
Impressive equipment to say the least. All airports created equally and there would be no chance of getting anything through. Obviously not all airport security is as good as the next and this must be a first line defense method.
Wow, I can't imagine what was going through your mind and all the drama you went through to go by and into your flight
Did you ended up explaining to them why their scanners picked up residue on your backpack?
...cos Al Qaeda is supports Android...?
Seriously I don't understand your post. The article and indeed the ruling specifically targets iPhones, and this is an Apple website.
then, instead of making it home non functional, it gets stolen brilliant idea...
You don't need much bomb to bring an airplane down if you think about it.
No one will be able to get through.
That's not really a good idea, as there is a risk of the phone being stolen at some point during the transportation of the bag. Just last week, two pairs of pants I had in my checked luggage were stolen during my return flight from Europe.
That is just not true. You can get on the flight, you just can't bring your phone!
Not only that but if it dies while you are waiting for a delayed flight you are likely already at your gate and passed security.
What does uncharged have to do with anything?
Empty battery will make your phone lighter allowing you to carry a more heavy carry-on.
Enough to pop open a window. Explosive decompression is not fun.
I assume it is so that security can see that it is a functional phone, and not a dummy unit filled to the brink with C4.
