FFind My iPhone gets updated, glitching out for some iOS 6 users

Find My iPhone has just been updated to version 2.0.3 and all Apple's saying is that it contains bug fixes and stability improvements.I haven't seen anything particularly of interest but I know I was experiencing crashes periodically while using it so we'll see if those issues are corrected over time.

We've had a few users reporting issues when attempting to sign into the updated version. One user said he was prompted to update to an iOS 7 beta before he could use the app. May be a one off issue and none of us were able to duplicate it. If any of you have any issues, make sure you let us know in the comments!

It's not working for me. it says "Developer Account Required", "You must be a registered iOS developer and have iCloud configured on iOS7 Beta to use this version of Find my iPhone".

Seems to be an iOS problem. I have no problem using the App with iOS 7 Beta 6.

frischa says:

I had this problem and turned Find My IPhone off in iCloud settings and turned it right back on and then I was able to log in.

markm says:

Same problem here on the first login attempt. I then tried again right from the same screen and was able to login. Still l not right, but at least it's working. Subsequent sign out and login went normally with no further error message.

The icon is quite obviously iOS 7, but the graphics on the inside are not, which is confusing me.

Mario Jad says:

I am not a developer and running iOS 6.1.3 on a 4S. Downloaded and works as expected for me.

Looks like just the icon is new. Everything else looks like the old version.
