Apple’s iOS 4.2 comes with free Find My iPhone

iPhone 4 and iPad owners can soon misplace their beloved iDevices as much as they like, as iOS 4.2 also comes with free access to Apple’s Find My iPhone/iPad feature.

Previously only available as part of Apple’s premium MobileMe service, the handy little function can find your missing iPhone on a map, allow you to post a message to its screen or remotely set a password lock, and lets you wipe the data remotely if the handset has been nicked (that’s English for stolen).

You’ll need the iOS 4.2 update before you can make use of Find My iPhone, however – that should be with us later on this afternoon.
