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.
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.
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.
Want to catch the sunset tonight or curious what time the sun actually came up this morning? Lots of weather apps have this information readily available, but if you need it fast, you can also ask Siri for it when you're in a hurry.
Most of us want to know what the weather is going to be like when preparing for our day. Do we need to bring an umbrella or pack a sweatshirt in anticipation of a chilly evening? While there are lots of great weather apps, sometimes we just want quick weather information without having to dig through folders. So instead, just ask Siri about the weather!
If you want a weekly weather forecast you can always launch your favorite weather app and check out all the data you want. However, if you're in a hurry Siri can also give you forecasts for the entire week if you just ask.
Siri not only makes for a great digital assistant but a great weather forecaster as well. With a little help from Siri, you can make sure you're never caught without your umbrella, raincoat, snow shovel, or suntan lotion again.
