What you need to know
- Weather Radar Widget puts weather data on your Home screen.
The arrival of iOS 14 Home screen widgets means we've been seeing some great apps take advantage of the new space. Now we can put important information at our fingertips at all times. Weather is a great example of that, with Weather Radar Widget putting radar images where you'll see them.
Because Apple won't allow widgets to update with live data, the app has to automatically refresh its widgets every ten minutes to make sure users have the most recent radar data available to them. It's a limitation Apple put in place, but it doesn't get in the way too much here.
Weather Radar Widget is available for iPhone and iPad and can be downloaded from the App Store (opens in new tab), for free, right now.
It's also notable that, according to Apple's new App Store privacy labels, this app doesn't collect any data about you – good to know!

At iMore, Oliver is involved in daily news coverage and, not being short of opinions, has been known to 'explain' those thoughts in more detail, too.
Having grown up using PCs and spending far too much money on graphics card and flashy RAM, Oliver switched to the Mac with a G5 iMac and hasn't looked back. Since then he's seen the growth of the smartphone world, backed by iPhone, and new product categories come and go. Current expertise includes iOS, macOS, streaming services, and pretty much anything that has a battery or plugs into a wall. Oliver also covers mobile gaming for iMore, with Apple Arcade a particular focus. He's been gaming since the Atari 2600 days and still struggles to comprehend the fact he can play console quality titles on his pocket computer.
Downloaded app and for now it's crap! Read a couple of reviews that said the same thing. You should review these apps before publishing such a rosy review. Very disappointing iMore
