Apple Reveals Redesigned Weather iOS App With Dark Sky-Like Notifications and Full-Screen Maps
Apple today at WWDC revealed a new iOS weather app with additional features, like full-screen maps and live weather notifications. The new app includes many features similar to Dark Sky, which Apple acquired last year.
Apple said that the redesigned app includes more graphical displays of weather data, full-screen maps, and dynamic layouts that change based on conditions.
There's also new animated backgrounds that more accurately reflect the sun's position and precipitation, and notifications highlight when rain or snow starts and stops.
Apple said that the new graphics were created to make it easier to understand conditions like wind, UNV, and barometric pressure. In total, there are thousands of variations of backgrounds to reflect sun positions, clouds, rain, snow, and more.
