Weather widget not working on iPhone since last update

expand collapsive

Hi, is it just me or has the weather widget been acting weird since the last few updates. I was hoping it would be fixed with the latest 16.5 update, but no.

    Hello people, not here to give an authoritative solution, but from the little experience I have dealing with iPhones, these are a few things that could work:

    • Force close and open the Weather app – It works in most cases to just force the app to close and re-open it. Minor issues can be resolved this way.
    • Restart your device – restarting the device can go a long way, it can fix issues that may not make much sense.
    • Remove and re-add the weather widget – Try removing the widget and adding it back to see if it starts working properly.
    • Update the weather app – Go to the App Store and make sure that the app is on its latest version.
    • Check the permissions granted to the Weather app – Go to Settings -> Privacy & Security -> Location Services and scroll down to find the Weather app. Make sure it is set to ‘While Using the App or Widgets’ or ‘Always’. Try turning on Precise Location too.
    • Check internet connectivity – Very basic, but you never know, something as small as this could be the issue.

    If your weather widget is not working on your iPhone since the last update, there are a few troubleshooting steps you can try to resolve the issue:

    1. Restart your iPhone: Sometimes, a simple restart can fix minor software glitches. Press and hold the power button until the “Slide to power off” option appears, then slide to power off. After a few seconds, press and hold the power button again to turn your iPhone back on.

    2. Check your internet connection: Ensure that your iPhone is connected to a stable internet connection, as the weather widget relies on internet connectivity to fetch the latest weather data. If you’re on Wi-Fi, try switching to cellular data or vice versa to see if that resolves the issue.
