Apple issues a fix for its botched up update of Find My iPhone App which didn't let normal users use it

Apple issues a fix for its botched up update of Find My iPhone App which didn't let normal users use it

Apple committed a rare blunder while issuing a update for its 'Find My iPhone' App.  The update was meant only for developers only but due to some inadvertent mistake on Apples part it became available for all users and that caused a huge confusion.  The update had  brought about a iOS 7 style icon to the App but the user interface remained the same.  

As the non developers updated the App they were led to a login page which asked for their non existent developer credentials and would give the following error message if you tried to log in with your normal username and password :
“You must be a registered iOS developer and have iCloud configured on iOS 7.0 Beta to use this version of Find My iPhone,”

The bug thankfully had only affected the iOS App update and didn't appear to have hit the Apple's website iCloud.com.  Remember, iCloud.com is used to monitor or track your phone.   Today morning however, users were greeted with the icon but you could easily sign in with your credentials.  Which means that the Apple engineers worked overnight to fix the bug.  As of now all the Apple systems are normal as is reflected on the Apple's system status page.  Apple has listed the version No.2.0.3 and given a changelog as 
• Bug fixes and stability improvements

If you haven't already download this must have App, do visit Apple store and download it now.
