“Quick! Hide the iPad!”
As smartphones and tablets like the iPhone and iPad become increasingly popular, they become more prone to law enforcement searches. Because mobile devices like the iPhone and iPad are pretty much computers for some folks these days.
According to a report from GigaOM the first iPhone search warrant was approved by a judge shortly after the original was released in 2007. Since then, more and more search warrants for iOS devices have been given the go ahead.
The report also says that the search requests have become more frequent. iPads are also prone to searches by law enforcement.
The lesson? Don’t take incriminating photos or send texts that will get you busted on your iPhone or iPad.
