    Apple's iCloud is built in to iOS 6 and has a bit of a tracking feature, called "Find my iPhone". It works with iPhones, but also iPods, iPads and MacBooks. It does "track" your computer, but as I learned with a recent theft of my MacBook, the tracking is only approximate. You can configure your iCloud tracking feature in your Settings App.

    There are also third party tracking apps. I can't see how they could track any better, as the tracking is limited by the physical features of the devices, not software. However, they can offer extra features, such as taking photos automatically and sending them to you. "Prey" is one such service, I'm subscribed to it, but haven't really had to "test" it yet. Just search in the App store, you'll probably find others.
