Israel Ends Ban on iPad Imports, Personal Devices Now Allowed

In a swift turnaround, Israel’s Ministry of Communications has now cleared the iPad for use within its borders.

This decision comes after initial concerns led to a prohibition on iPad imports last week, confining several units to customs.

The initial ban raised eyebrows as the iPad complies with EU wireless regulations, which align with those in Israel.

According to Ynet News, individuals are now permitted to bring one iPad each into Israel, and those iPads previously detained will be returned to their rightful owners.
