Apple makes Find My iPhone/iPad service free!

Among todays great news is the fact that Apple has decided to make Find My Iphone (iOS device) a completely free service. Find My iPhone / iPad is now free for iPhone 4, the iPad, and the fourth-gen iPod touch running iOS 4.2.1.

Just like with the paid version, you’ll be able to locate your device on a map, lock it, display a message, play a sound, or remotely wipe your data from any browser or the updated iOS app, which should presumably go live sometime today.

While we still think it would be amazing if Apple would make MobileMe a free service for all, we are still happy with this update. If you’re not familiar, the service basically does two things: it helps you locate a lost iOS device or lock down your data if your device is stolen. You still turn it on in MobileMe preferences, but now it just doesn’t cost you anything. In the event you lose your iOS device, you can use one of your other iOS devices or the MobileMe web site to track it or lock it down.
