Apple today at WWDC revealed a new iOS weather app with additional features, like full-screen maps and live weather notifications. The new app includes many features similar to Dark Sky, which Apple acquired last year.

Apple said that the redesigned app includes more graphical displays of weather data, full-screen maps, and dynamic layouts that change based on conditions.

There's also new animated backgrounds that more accurately reflect the sun's position and precipitation, and notifications highlight when rain or snow starts and stops.

Apple said that the new graphics were created to make it easier to understand conditions like wind, UNV, and barometric pressure. In total, there are thousands of variations of backgrounds to reflect sun positions, clouds, rain, snow, and more.

Please tell me that they've improved Siri's Cupertino-elitist attitude towards the weather. Living in Western PA, when I asked her what the weather is going to be she says, "Some not-so-good weather tomorrow. Down to 68 and mostly cloudy". In Pittsburgh, that's beach weather.

Lol, in Texas we have the same thing. It will be 70 outside and only 60% humidity she says it is bad weather... Siri, any humidity under 90% and temps under 84 is great in summer.

Really would like to see a radar map integrated at some point. It's a pretty standard feature, and Dark Sky had a very good one—that was my #1 favorite feature of the app.

In the watchos summary page it shows "Next-hour precipitation" notifications in the weather app. So many we can ditch dark sky once and for all!

Edit:

Next-hour precipitation notifications​

Get a notification when rain, snow, hail, or sleet is about to start or stop.

No Weather app to iPadOS? This would have been a great opportunity as they're revamping the design.

I don't use the Weather app on iOS as long as it doesn't show the "felt" temperature (I'm not sure what it is in English). In Montreal, where I live, 10 Celcius in the fall is not the same as 10 Celcius in the spring, and humidity and wind can change significantly how it feels to go outside. (As in anywhere I guess.)

I lived in Pittsburgh for years.

It is always overcast there. It is sad.
