    Very..Very dumb question indeed. However, I noticed that when I use the stock Weather App (both widget and app itself), I no longer see the little Location Services symbol in the status bar at the top anymore. I used to see this everytime I'd swipe down to view the widget...after it refreshed, the symbol would then go away.

    Can anyone else confirm this?

    I know, it's's just something I've noticed.

    Sorry - can't confirm here. I'm getting the icon in the status bar as expected. :(

    Have you checked if anything has changed in your settings in Settings > Privacy > Location services > Weather > Never/Always.
    Maybe it's now set to Never instead of Always.

    In the case of the original Apple Weather app there are only these two options. Which i still find odd because there is that great option to choose 'When in use' if the App supports that feature. Other 3rd party weather apps i use have that option.
