- 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, 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!
