The iPhone 3G S makes finding a lost iPhone a little bit easier. A new Find My iPhone feature lets you locate a lost phone on a map within MobileMe, then send a special message that'll appear on the device's display.

You can remotely sound an alarm to help find the phone, too, even if it's set to silent. Find My iPhone also includes a Remote Wipe option that can remotely clear all of your content.

Watching movies gets simpler with the new iPhone 3.0 update included with the 3G S phone. The OS now allows you to purchase or rent movies directly from your device, then download them wirelessly via iTunes.

Apple has also included parental controls to let mums and dads restrict what kids can download.
