iOS 18 will reportedly introduce two improvements to the built-in Weather app


Apple unveiled iOS 18 at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2024 last month. During the event, the Cupertino-based tech giant showcased several new features that will come with the next major update to the iPhone operating system. However, some of the features that were not mentioned at the event are now being discovered. A report has now spotted two new features in the Weather app. One of these features is said to offer a slight change in the design and brings a ‘feel like’ temperature where users can easily recognize it.

iOS 18 Weather App Improvements

9to5Mac has identified two new updates to the Weather app on iOS 18 that could improve its usability. According to images shared by the publication, the ‘Feels Like’ temperature will now be shown more prominently below the actual temperature at the top of the app’s interface. This will be a notable improvement from its current state as users have to scroll down to see this metric. ‘Feels Like’ will reportedly be shown in a different size and font style to make it easier to distinguish.

The ‘feels’ temperature is a measure of how hot or cold the weather actually feels, as opposed to the objective air temperature recorded by weather stations. It takes into account a number of factors such as relative humidity, wind speed and the effect of air temperature to determine how hot a person will actually feel the temperature. With this upgrade to the Weather app, users can see both values ​​at the same time.

The publication states that the ‘feels like’ temperature will only appear if there is a significant difference between it and the actual value of the air temperature. If the difference is marginal or there is no difference at all, users will only be able to see the former.

The second feature will reportedly allow users to check the weather in both their home and work locations. The iOS 18 update will allow the Weather app to integrate with Contacts and pull in home and work addresses. According to the report, in the app, users will see these as new locations in their list of tracked weather locations for the feature. Previously, users had to manually add these locations to check their weather updates.
