Find My iPhone Now Free Without a MobileMe Account


Here’s some more great news for iPhone and iPad users on iOS 4.2 release day – the Find My iPhone service no longer requires a MobileMe subscription. The Find My iPhone app is still a free app and now you don’t need to pay $99 / year to make use of this great feature.

The Find My iPhone (or iPad or iPod touch) feature is now free to use without a MobileMe℠ subscription and helps you locate your missing device.* The Find My iPhone app is a free download on the App Store℠ and lets users easily locate a missing device on a map and have it display a message or play a sound. Users can even remotely lock or wipe data from a lost device to protect privacy.

Nice move by Apple. I’ve found that this feature was the only reason I renewed MobileMe the last couple of years – it’s great to see it available to all for free. Now Apple better get to work doing something to make MobileMe worth that $99 a year, or just make the whole thing free soon. Smile
