iOS 4.2(.1) finally goes public

All the other blogs were doing it, so I felt the need to do so as well. iOS 4.2.1 finally hits the streets today! A weird day for Apple to push out an update, confirmed by the fact that no one guessed the correct release day in our “when will iOS 4.2 be released?” poll. Not a big deal for iPhone and iPod users, but this is huge for the iPad.

Although, there is a nice surprise for those of you with the latest iTechnology…iPhone 4, iPod touch 4th gen, and iPad users now have access to “Find my iPhone” for free.

iPhoneinCanada has posted a guide on how to setup your free find my iPhone account:

To set up your free Find My iPhone account, follow the steps below:

1.) Update your iPhone 4 or fourth-generation iPod touch to iOS 4.2 later today.

2.) Tap on Settings > Mail, Contacts Calendars and then Tap on “Add Account”.

3.) Tap on MobileMe and input your existing Apple ID (iTunes Store ID) or MobileMe member name. If you don’t have one, you can create one using the Create Apple ID option.

4.) Verify your account via email.

5.) Go back to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > MobileMe and toggle on “Find my iPhone”. Then tap “Allow”.

You can use the free Find My iPhone app or for those of you like me, that only own one iPhone, you can login to mobile me to use the web based service.
