In March, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announced a temporary ban on large electronics in passenger cabins on non-stop flights from 10 airports in eight countries in the Middle East and North Africa.
A three-month-old ban on taking electronic devices such as laptops onto aircraft cabins on flights from Turkey to the United States was lifted at the start of July.
The US Department of Homeland Security's controversial "laptop ban" on US-bound flights from ten Muslim-majority countries has been terminated.
A USA intelligence official told CBS News that the new ban was put in place because of an intelligence report that found a terrorist plot seeking to use explosives hidden in a laptop to destroy a commercial flight.
On Wednesday, DHS Secretary John Kelly said that officials had tested a laptop bomb on a real airplane and that the result was that "it destroyed the plane".
Kelly said he believes the current security levels at US shipping ports is adequate, but his agency must continue to research new technology to keep up with changing threats.
But this isn't the end for scrutiny of devices on airplanes.
The 10 airports in the Middle East and North Africa have implemented enhanced security measures required by the USA since the ban in March.
SCHAPER: So the Department of Homeland Security now requires airports around the world that are the final points of departure for flights coming into the U.S.to enhance security screening protocols and upgrade bomb detection equipment.
The new measures may include asking passengers to present larger electronic devices for inspection and prove they can be powered on.
