I love the weather icon with the live temperature. I do wish it showed the current weather and temperature though like WeatherIcon does.

So...how do we know this is a live icon? Wasn't the old weather icon 73 and sunny too?

That's possibly true but I think it more goes to the fact that its very fluid so who knows what tweaks we'll see between beta 1 and release.

Yea I saw that too. I'm pretty sure these icons were designed DAYS before WWDC. Also in iOS 7b1 itself some .app folders have differnent icons then the final build; and in some places iOS 6 icons are used. These icons are definitely changing, I just hope that's live weather

what would be cool if the background colours of the icon also reflect real world conditions outside.

Considering this image is a fallback for the animation, it is most likely an out-of-date asset. Someone just forgot to update this image with the current icons before the page went live. If this is the case, it will probably be updated soon to match the rest of the preview.

If the clock is an active icon (and not like "iOS6 calendar active"), I can't imagine the weather icon WOULDN'T be.

Clock does not need to use location (GPS) to give you live information. But weather app needs to. Resulting on a battery consummation. At least this is what i think.

Not if they give you the option to set it to one of your favorite locations, not just the current one. They can also give you the option of how frequently you want to update the info.

At least this shows that they are working on them. (Hopefully they work on the Safari icon soon :p)

People keep saying that in previous years the design hasn't changed from beta to public release, but they have never done a 100% design overhaul of the OS. With that many design changes they are bound to be working out kinks and changing things before release. Other than some of the icons, I'm loving the new design.

There are apps in the AppStore that use push alerts and give you the weather in the icon as a badge, no battery drain

Or if it only updated every 30 minutes or even every hour. It's not like the weather jumps so dramatically you need an update ever 5 minutes.
