Apple also announced an update of MobileMe. The update comes with a number of interesting features. One that is particularly awesome is the “Find My iPhone” function. Apple knows it’s unfortunate for you to misplace your iPhone and so, MobileMe will help you locate it.

If you lose your iPhone, MobileMe can allow you to locate it by using the new “Find My iPhone” feature. Simply access this feature, MobileMe will remotely locate the lost iPhone via its built-in GPS and show you the approximate position on a map.


If your iPhone has been stolen or is picked up by someone. Additionally, MobileMe lets you remotely send a message (say, “Hey, please return the iPhone to me! You’ll be rewarded.”) to the lost iPhone. Other than sending text message, MobileMe also allows you to play a sound on the lost iPhone. So, when you find your iPhone is nearby but you just can’t locate it, this feature may help.
