Apple delivers MobileMe update

Find My Phone tool added to mobile suite.

Apple has posted an update for its MobileMe service.

The company has released a new version of its mobile device synching and management software package as well as a new tool to help users locate lost and stolen iPhones.

The MobileMe update adds a number of features to the suite's email software. Updates include the addition of SSL security as well as faster performance and better filtering of junk mail.

Also updated was the website. The company rolled out a new interface for the site which includes a redesigned log-in page as well as new navigational keyboard shortcuts.

A new addition to the MobileMe suite was posted by Apple in the 'Find My iPhone' tool. The application allows users to track a stolen or lost iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad by downloading the tool onto another device and then tracking the lost phone through the navigational hardware.

In addition to tracking a device's location, users can remotely lock or wipe the handset as well as displaying sounds, images and messages.

Apple is currently offering MobileMe as a 60 day free trial, after which the service will cost US$99 annually.
