Is this then some form of proprietary apple disc encryption?

Its not something like bitlocker where we can check on the NIST site

How would we check it matches up to FIPS standards?

And is this encryption "default", or by default is thre no encryption on an Ipad - and you have to pay extra for it if you want it?

I don't know much about "FIPS" standards. As far as I know (I'll check it in a little while) iPhone 3GS models and up, and all iPad models, have built in AES-256 hardware encryption. Which is always on. If you want to erase data via an "over the air" service, it can be done in a few seconds, because the encryption key is deleted then, making all data almost impossible to recover.
