Find My iPhone app running on an iPad
IOS 4.2.1 update coming later today

Apple announced this morning that the 4.2.1 update will be made available for iOS devices later today. IOS 4.2.1 brings the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad together when it comes to OS releases -- previously, the iPhone and iPod touch were using the 4.x branch of iOS while the iPad used 3.x.

IOS 4.2 finally gives iPad users the ability to multitask with applications and create folders among other things. Other features that will be rolled out to all iOS devices include AirPlay and AirPrint.

iOS 4.2 makes the iPad a completely new product, just in time for the holiday season,” said Apple CEO Steve Jobs. “Once again, the iPad with iOS 4.2 will define the target that other tablets will aspire to, but very few, if any, will ever be able to hit.”

Another bonus that Apple announced is that the Find My iPhone service will now be made available for free for select iOS devices. Previously, the service required a MobileMe subscription from Apple. Find My iPhone allows users to track down a lost or stolen iOS device and locate it on a map using Me.com or an iOS app (which be available for free from the App Store).

Unfortunately, the service will only be made freely available for users of the iPhone 4, iPod touch 4G, and iPad.

The iOS 4.2.1 update is now live. It can be obtained using the "Check for Update" feature within iTunes.
