Apple Releases iOS 7-style Find My iPhone App
Apple Thursday launched an update to the Find My iPhone application for iOS, bringing the application to version 2.0.3. The update adds the iOS 7-style flat application icon that was originally introduced
in the iCloud Beta Web site just last week, which received a flat interface makeover to make it look more like iOS 7.
Although many might want to jump the gun and download the update right now, we suggest waiting. Multiple reports Thursday afternoon tell us that the updated application will only let you sign in if youíre registered with an Apple Developer account. If youíre not, youíll get the pop-up message below:
Itís unknown exactly why Apple would make a developer-only application readily available in the App Store for all users. With that being said, Apple may actually fix this problem in the near future to prevent regular users from not being able to use the application. The issue is not expected to be present when iOS 7 is launched to the public this Fall.
Apart from the obvious, the update's change log also tells us that the update includes bug fixes and stability improvements. This is an ironic claim, considering that the latest public version of Find My iPhone can't really be used by non-developers right now.
UPDATE: The issue with the application allowing only developers to log in appears to be fixed now. Go ahead and download!
