Apple has released a new version of its MobileMe device synching and management software package and a new tool to help customers find lost or stolen iPhones.
The update adds a number of features to the suite's email software, including SSL security, faster performance and better junk mail filtering.
Apple has also rolled out a new interface for the me.com web site, which includes a redesigned log-in page and new navigational keyboard shortcuts.
The Find My iPhone tool, meanwhile, 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.
Users can remotely lock or wipe the handset, and display sounds, images and messages.
Apple is currently offering MobileMe as a 60-day free trial, after which the service costs $99 (£66) a year.
