By offering its new iOS 4.2, Apple has also made the “Find my iPhone, iPad or iPod touch” feature available, which allows you to locate your parked device and protect the data. This functionality, which is the basis offered exclusively with the MobileMe service, is therefore now offered free of charge.
To be able to take advantage of this, simply install the new iOS 4.2 on your iPhone 4, iPad or Fourth generation iPod touch and once configured, you will be able to locate your device on a map, have it display a message, remotely set a lock code and initiate a remote erase to delete the data. And if you end up finding your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, you can restore everything from your last backup.
We discuss it on the forum.
