Apple's Weather app won't tell you when it's 69 degrees.
As reported by The Verge, Apple's Weather app seems to have a curious problem where it will not show you when it is legimately 69 degrees out. Instead, the app will say it is 70 degrees outside, even if that is not the case.
It's currently unclear as to why the Weather app does this. While some suspect it is Apple's attempt to curb any 69-related humor, a more plausible explanation has surfaced on Twiiter. According to some, it could be that Apple is converting temperatures from Celsius to Fahrenheit which would explain the discrepancy.
The report goes on to note that phones running older versions of iOS, as well as the upcoming iOS 15, do not appear to have this issue.
The Verge says that they have reached out for comment from Apple but have yet to receive a response.
