Israel’s Communications Ministry has reversed a two-week old ban on bringing an iPad into the country, CBS News reports. The ministry instituted the ban earlier this month, claiming the device’s wireless capabilities were “not compatible with Israeli standards.” More specifically, FCC regulations allow Wi-Fi devices sold in the U.S. to broadcast at higher power levels than are permitted in Europe and Israel. “After intensive technical scrutiny,” the ministry said in a statement, it has decided “that the device which could be operated in various standards will be operated in Israel according to local standards.”
