How to use Weather for iPhone: The ultimate guide

The Weather app for iPhone is elegant but bare-bones. There are subtle, beautiful animations but nothing like radar maps to keep the really weather geeks happy. Still, you can check the temperature in celsius or fahrenheit, see hourly forecasts for the current day and daily forecasts for the next five days. You can also get humidity, chance of precipitation, and wind data for your current location or any major location, anywhere in the world. You can even access an overview in Notification Center or use Siri to access any and all of it. Also, if you have an iPad, there's no reason to feel left out — the App Store has you covered with plenty of great App Store alternatives. So, here's everything you need to know!

How to get humidity, chance of rain, wind, and more info from Weather for iPhone

The Weather app for iPhone provides easy to see temperature and precipitation information for one or more locations, all at a glance. But what about humidity level? Chance of rain? Wind direction and speed? And what the temperature actually feels like when you go out? Luckily, Apple's built-in Weather app provides all of that information as well. It's hidden behind a gesture, but once you know it, you can get to all of it with just a simple tap.

How to switch between celsius and fahrenheit in Weather for iPhone

The Weather App for iPhone can show you temperatures on the celsius scale used by most countries in the world. For those in the Bahamas, Belize, the Cayman Islands, and the United States, however, Weather can also show you temperatures on the fahrenheit scale. While you can't set each location independently, you can quickly and easily toggle between celsius and fahrenheit, and back again, for all locations.

How to add, remove, and reorder locations in Weather for iPhone

The Weather app for iPhone can show you a list of cities along with local times and temperatures. That makes it incredibly easy to glance at wide range of information. In addition to the weather for your current location, you can also add additional locations based on city name, area or zip code, or airport code. You can arrange all the cities in just exactly the order you want, and you can even remove ones you no longer want.

The Weather Channel swept in and blew Yahoo out of iOS 8's Weather app

When iOS 8 rolls around, one of the more subtle changes will come in the Apple-coded Weather app: Yahoo will be out as the source for weather data, replace instead by The Weather Channel. Yahoo's been the data and visuals provider for the Weather app for some time, so what brought the change? That'd be The Weather Channel amping up their game in the past year to offer better information for companies like Apple.

Comparing iPad weather apps at a glance

Earlier in the week I compared the current weather screens of 27 popular iPhone weather apps, and in the spirit of equal time for expansive interfaces, here's the same thing for 18 popular iPad weather apps. The reason for the lower number is that not all of the iPhone apps had iPad versions -- Apple's own iOS weather app included! While some of the iPad versions are just bigger, others take advantage of the larger screen and broader aspect ratio to show not just bigger but more.

Living Earth for iPad review: The best weather app for the iPad

I'm not going to lie, settling on one single app to label as "the best" weather app for iPad wasn't easy. On one hand I had a collection of feature-packed apps that provided every little detail about the weather, including videos and interactive forecasts. On the other hand, I had a group of apps that didn't necessarily have as many features, but were beautiful, easy to use, and fit the needs of most people. Reminding myself that I was looking for best, not most feature-filled, it was easy for me to give Living Earth for iPad the title.
