    I don't know what has happened but for the last few days all of a sudden the default Apple weather app is showing the wrong city. It's set on local and I have Wi-Fi-enabled. I've replicated it on LTE too. There's nothing wrong with the geolocation of my home ISP IP address because it shows as my exact town.

    On my windows 8 laptop the default weather app shows the correct town, which is odd. I tried going to settings and I reset the location/privacy settings, I also reset the network settings. I also tried holding down the power button and home button. The issue persists. The strange thing is when I'm outside my city, the local weather updates to the accurate town.

    The town I'm getting when home is in actuality an hour away from me. Any ideas?

    Started last week running 7.1.1. I updated today to 7.1.2. Issue still there. Not jail broken.

    That doesn't help me though. I have no problem with the weather app. I've used it for a long time and it does the job. It has a gorgeous interface and it's simple. This is the first time I've had such an issue with the app.

    Use another app on your phone that asks for and displays your location, and see if that is correct.

    I've had this happen to me as well. I go out of town and when I get back home and check the weather it still shows I'm in another city. Closing the weather app seems to fix it. I'm on 7.0.6 btw.

    Apple's weather app gets it's weather data from Yahoo, Yahoo gets it's weather data from Weather Underground. Weather Underground is now owned by Weather Channel. In iOS 8, Apple's weather app gets it's weather data from Weather Channel.

    Then shouldn't apples weather app display the same information as the weather channel app? :confused:

    Currently on my iPhone for my town.

    iOS weather reporting 77, forecast high tomorrow 88

    Weather channel app reporting 75, forecast high tomorrow 89

    No. It's an app. Isn't that up to Apple to decide or even Weather Channel?
