What you need to know
- Apple announced iPadOS 16 earlier today.
- The company revealed that the Weather app is finally coming to the iPad.
- The app has been on the iPhone since it was originally released.
Earlier today, Apple announced iPadOS 16 during its WWDC 2022 keynote and with it an overdue app for the iPad.
The latest version of iPadOS features Stage Manager to better organize your windows like the Mac and the Freeform app to easily collaborate with your friends and coworkers on a limitless canvas.
In addition Freeform, there is another app that is making its triumphant and long-overdue debut on iPad: Weather. With iPadOS 16, the Weather app is finally making the jump from the iPhone, which it has been on since the iPhone was invented, to the iPad.
The Weather app on the iPad, besides taking advantage of the larger display, will feature the same experience and features as users enjoy on the iPhone.
We have all been waiting for this day. A day when the Weather app is accessible on more than a widget on the iPad. And today is that day! Or July. Or in the fall. You know, whenever you install iPadOS 16 on your iPad.

About time. Now how about the health app on iPadOS, and even MacOS. Not asking those platforms to collect health data, but how about letting me view it, manage it, on a bigger device. I get that would require syncing the data via iCloud or something, but I'm good with that.
