Here's What's New in the iOS 17 Weather App

Apple in iOS 17 has introduced a number of changes across its stock apps, including the Weather app. With the update, there are some minor changes to the functionality and design of the app.

Previous Day's Weather

The biggest update is an option to see yesterday's weather in the 10-day forecast. In iOS 16, you can only view the current day and the next 10 days, but in ‌iOS 17‌, you can view current day, the next 10 days, and the weather from the previous day.

10-day forecasts show the chance of rain each day and offer a "daily summary" instead of a forecast.

Interface Tweaks

The main Weather interface has been updated with large "My Location" text for the weather forecast in at your current location, with the city underneath. In iOS 16, it simply said the city, which could be confusing when navigating through multiple saved cities.

Module Changes

Some of the weather modules have been relocated, with rain and hourly forecasts shown first. News and alerts are shown lower in the app, and there is a new "Averages" weather module that displays how the current temperature deviates from the historical average on that day. Apple has also increased the size of the wind speed module, showing information on gust speed, a daily comparison, and a wind scale.

Moon Module

Apple has added a moon module that shows the current status of the moon, the time until the next full moon, moonset and moonrise times, and a moon calendar.

Daily Comparisons

Daily comparisons are included for UV index, humidity, the "Feels Like" index, and visibility, and there are options to change units for wind speed, precipitation, pressure, and distance.

Data Updates

Apple does not appear to have made any changes to the data that is used for the Weather app, despite complaints of its inaccuracy following the incorporation of the Dark Sky app.

As a person affected by seasonal allergies, I'd find it really useful if Apple would add pollen-count data, forecasts, allergen 'season' info etc. to Weather.
Could also integrate with Health for symptoms.

I know that moon was new, too bad they didn’t update the radar.

really? for those who sleep all day and missed out on an entire day? I fail to understand the benefit of that so please educate me
I would find that useful TBH. It would better see or help predict specific trends for surfing or kitesurfing. Wind prediction can be very off so being able to see what they predicted yesterday and what actually occurred would be nice.

Understanding how the over, or under predicted wind, from a low pressure or thermals due to temps would be welcome.

As of now Accuweather over predicts southerly winds and Weather Channel under predicts them. Both are widely off when it comes to north or west wind gusts behind a front. Matching that to the low that moved through or the air temp vs water temp for thermal behavior would be a big help.

Being able to see the pressure differential in a low that moved through and how the wind reacted would go a long way in prediction models.

Would this mean anything for most people. Probably not, but it would for me and anyone who likes to surf, kitesurf etc and actually does their own data analysis vs looking at Surfline.

The best thing Apple could do to improve the weather app would be to just dust off the old DarkSky .ipa and change the name.

Hopefully they improve its actual function and accuracy. It has been horrendous for say the last 2 months in my area. Example: 0% chance of rain and it’s pouring outside
