Apple’s New iOS 5 Weather App Delivers ‘Here You Are’ Weather



Apple’s new iOS 5 Weather app now delivers the local weather for your current location by default. Therefore you’ll always have a “here you are” weather report each time you open the app.

You’ll know that you are viewing your local weather when you are viewing the page in the app that displays the compass arrow as shown in the above image.

If you tap the screen you’ll see the weather by the hour for your location or other locations you’ve configured in the Weather apps settings.

Tapping the screen reveals the hourly local weather report for the current location you are in.

    Should I know what the Icon next to the battery percentage is, or is that something that has yet to be discussed due to NDA?

  2. c_cooper88 says:

    I’m intrigued.
    In the last screenshot, what is the icon in the menu bar between the bluetooth and battery percentage representing?

  3. Freak6767 says:

    Just the bluetooth headset icon

  4. KillianBell says:

    Unless I’m very much mistaken, I think it represents a Bluetooth headset is connected?

  5. cmsj says:

    Presumably the battery indicator for the official apple headset

    Its looking more and more like the GPS is going to be switched on much more in iOS 5.   Although the weather app.  obviously just needs to-do a quick location lookup as it is activated.  The Reminders app with its notifications on arriving or leaving a location need location services running the whole time.   I wonder what this will do to average battery life and temperature of device.

  7. Eric Handler says:

    People still have those things?  Didn’t they stop selling them?  Also, teach me to not care about wires and just use a wired headset…

    It’s the battery charge left in a bluetooth headset, such as the apple one, or a jawbone.

    More likely is that it’ll use the cached cell-tower triangulation data to provide your location… The app doesn’t need to be GPS precise to make this local weather feature work. I doubt the reminder app will need GPS accuracy for it’s alerts either.

    I hope ist will run on iPad as well. Still waiting for Stocks on iPad…

    This still seemed a little buggy in the beta, like the hourly temps are sometimes wonky, but local weather is something that should have been in there long time ago.  I signed up for a dev account and have a few UDID registration spots still open if anyone is interested. $8 iosdevaccess at gmail dot com

    This application would be markedly improved if it also showed the time of the location you were interested in. So, of I am in California and checking the weather in London I should also see what time it is in London. This would save time flipping back and forth between the clock. If this could simulaneously show temperature in centigrade – though in smaller – font – that would be even better.

    I hope other weather apps include this. I don’t like Apple’s weather app but I’d like this feature. I have a few different locations and I’ve looked at the wrong city while planning before.

    It’s the icon for the Jawbone Icon headset. The Icon sends battery data stats to the iphone which then displays it in the form of that icon.
