Apple seems to be getting used to rolling out small but useful upgrades. Hot on the virtual heels of the iPhone OS 3.1.2 release, Apple on Friday announced some improvements to the MobileMe service.

If this MobileMe upgrade came without much fanfare, that’s likely because the improvements themselves just aren’t that fanfarish. Highlights include new settings for public iDisk files, a revamped Web interface, and more granular privacy controls for what others can and can’t do with files stored in the online repository.

The occasionally-indispensible Find My iPhone feature also received some token upgrades—more prominence in the me.com toolbar, and its own shiny new URL.

Saving the best for last, Apple also included one real live bug fix in the MobileMe upgrades: an issue where exporting multiple contacts at once would fail is reportedly corrected.

So, MobileMe enthusiasts who like upgrades and hate major changes, this one’s for you.
