Apple Introduces New Feature on iOS 17 Weather App

Apple has made several adjustments to its stock apps, including the Weather app, in iOS 17. With the update, there are some minor modifications to the app’s functionality and aesthetic.

The most significant change is the ability to view yesterday’s weather in the 10-day forecast. In iOS 16, you can only view the current day and the next 10 days, but in iOS 17, you can also view the previous day’s weather.

Instead of a forecast, a 10-day forecast gives a “daily summary” of the weather and the chance of rain for each day.

The main Weather interface has been updated with a big “My Location” text for the weather forecast at your present location, with the city underneath. In iOS 16, it just said the city, which could be confusing if you had saved towns in more than one place.

Several weather modules have been rearranged, with rain and hourly forecasts now displayed first. News and alerts are now displayed lower in the app, and a new “Averages” weather module displays how the present temperature deviates from the daily average.

Apple has added a moon module that displays the current phase of the moon, the time until the next full moon, moonset and moonrise times, and a moon calendar, as well as a wind speed module that displays information on gust speed at a glimpse in a larger format. Additionally, the wind module presents a daily comparison and a wind scale.

There are daily comparisons for UV index, humidity, the “Feels Like” index, and visibility, and the units for wind speed, precipitation, pressure, and distance can be changed.

Despite complaints about the Weather app’s inaccuracy following the incorporation of the Dark Sky app, Apple does not appear to have altered the data used by the application.
