    Is this app made by Apple with data provided by The Weather Channel? If so, does Apple share the location data with The Weather Channel? Is the app considered a third party app? We only grant access to Apple apps for location services: Reminders, Maps, Weather, Camera, and Siri & Dictation. Only Apple has my location information for these apps?
    Side note. We have been using iPhones for 5 years now and are jumping the Windows ship after the release of Windows 10 and the privacy issues. My girlfriend just bought a MacBook Air and now it's my turn. F microsoft.

    It's a native iOS Apple app. The weather data is provided by The Weather Channel, I'm not quite sure if some location information is sent to them to obtain the data or if it's done some other way.
