Lock Screen
Thanks to watch face complications, many Apple Watch owners are used to being able to glance at their wrist to check the weather forecast. With the advent of ‌iOS 16‌ and Lock Screen widgets, you can view the weather information right on your ‌iPhone‌ without even having to unlock the device.

The weather Lock Screen widget comes in several flavors. If you insert a widget alongside the date above the digital clock, you can opt to display moon events, sun events, conditions, location, rain, air quality, UV index, or wind.

Directly below the digital clock there is a larger oblong space where you can place widgets horizontally next to each other. Eight optional weather widgets are available here to see moon events, sun events, conditions, location, rain, air quality, UV index, or wind. Note that only the current weather conditions and moon events come in the larger widget format.
