US Airlines Can Stop Warning Fliers About The Galaxy Note 7

Now that over 96% of Galaxy Note 7 units have been returned to Samsung, the Department of Transportation has dropped its requirement that airlines must warn fliers about the phone. For months, airlines have been warning passengers that the phone is a flight risk.

According to an announcement from the FAA, the pre-boarding warning is no longer necessary. This is "due to the high degree of public awareness of the ban since issuance of the emergency restriction/prohibition order, as well as the extensive efforts by Samsung and U.S. wireless providers to make all Note 7 users aware the phone is recalled and banned from transport on U.S. aircraft."

Samsung recently said it'll soon release a report detailing what went wrong with the Note 7.
