Apple has quietly updated its Find My iPhone application to include a couple of very handy new features. After you have updated the app, when you try to locate one of your devices that is currently offline, you will receive an email to tell you when it has reconnected to a network.

You can also now delete a device that is attached to your account, without the need for it to be online. Previously you could only do this from the MobileMe web portal. If you don’t have Find My iPhone you should get it as soon as possible. It is completely free and gives you an easy way to locate your iOS device, remotely lock it or completely wipe it, if it is stolen. We have a guide to show you how to set it up right here.
