“iPad MobileMe integration has been announced with Apple revealing iPad versions of the Find My iPhone and Remote Wipe features that have recovered many a lost iPhone and deleted plenty of pictures the world was never meant to see,” Mic Wright reports for Electricpig.
“If you’ve got a MobileMe account (or plonk down £59 [US$99] a year to get one) you’ll be able to sync your email, calendars and other information between your iPad, iPhone and other computers,” Wright reports. MobileMe also gives your iPad access to iDisk and MobileMe email account which adds up to 20GB of storage in the cloud [or more, if you pay for it].
“Find My iPad will work best for the iPad 3G. The WiFi iPad doesn’t have GPS built-in so will need to be hooked up to a WiFi network for you to find it,” Wright reports. “If your iPad is permanently lost, you’ll be able to use Remote Wipe to remove all your files. Again, if you’ve opted for the WiFi-only iPad, it’ll need to be connected to do that.”
