    I reported this bug to Apple back in 2015.

    They responded once and then nothing, just left the ticket open.

    In the Weather app it sometime displays daytime variants of the weather icons during nighttime as you can see in the screenshot.

    I know it's a little thing but it still annoys me everytime I see it.

    I don't get it -- the cloud icons? If it showed suns, I'd understand...

    The arrow on the left shows the darker cloud icon - the nighttime variant. The arrow pointing to the right shows the lighter cloud icon - the daytime variant. It shouldn't be showing the daytime variant at nighttime. It obviously happens for other weather icons that have both daytime and nighttime versions too.

    Apple acknowledged it as a bug to me, they just seemingly aren't going to fix it.

    FWIW, I'm not seeing this in iOS 10 on either of our iPhones. The night time weather icon variants are correctly displayed from sunset till sunrise. I tried numerous cities in Canada and the US. Maybe this issue is location-specific?

    Thanks for the explanation. I've noticed this bug in other weather apps, but not the stock app (not to discount your experience, of course). Just checked -- it's nighttime here, skies are clear -- and I see only "moons" each hour until sunrise.

    I always thought a darker cloud means a slight chance of rain. *Shrug*

    I've had a look at some other locations and I've seen it happening in some other countries, here's Miami (I'm in the UK):

    Yeah, it's a weird one. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes it shows a combination of the right and wrong icons.


    Here's a reference sheet of some of weather icons:

    However, going off this post in the beta 5 thread (https://forums.macrumors.com/thread...enhancements-etc.2060496/page-5#post-24873614) it looks like they might have redone the icons completely? That nighttime icon looks the same colour as the rest.

    Can some of you post some more nighttime iOS 11 screenshots?

    Yeah, I think it's better this way.

    Otherwise, darker clouds could indicated worse weather, darker clouds. For example at 5, before the sunrise.
