IPhone weather: how to put it on the locked screen
There is no doubt that most people like to have some weather forecast app on their smartphone. This is especially true for apps that have widgets that are easy to place on the home screen so you always know more about the weather of the day. Only those who have a smartphone with iOS 12 or higher, can put the weather forecast on the iPhone even on the locked screen.
This is possible with the “Do Not Disturb” mode, which has received some interesting updates since the arrival of iOS 12 a few years ago. With this function, you can already see the weather forecast on the iPhone as soon as you wake up and without even having to unlock the device. To find out how you can do this, just check out our guide below.
As we mentioned earlier, to put the weather forecast on the iPhone on your locked screen, you need to have at least iOS 12 installed. Of course, devices with iOS 13, iOS 14 or higher also work this way.
For those who are not sure which iPhones are compatible with iOS 12, we separate them below:
- iPhone 5s
- iPhone 6
- iPhone 6 Plus
- iPhone 6s
- iPhone 6s Plus
- iPhone SE
- iPhone 7
- iPhone 7 Plus
- iPhone 8
- iPhone 8 Plus
- iPhone X
- iPhone XR
- iPhone XS
- iPhone XS Max
- iPhone 12
- iPhone 12 Mini
- iPhone 12 Pro
- iPhone 12 Pro Max
Of course, any iPhone released after these is also compatible with this functionality. If your device is on that list and you still don't have iOS 12, just update it in the device's settings.
Putting the weather forecast on the iPhone
Knowing that your iPhone is compatible with the functionality, it's time to put this weather forecast on your lock screen. The process is very simple and should not take more than a few minutes.
Step 1: to get started, open your iPhone settings in the “Settings” app. Once this is done, click on the “Do Not Disturb” option at the beginning of the screen.
Step 2: instead of simply activating the feature, activate the “Scheduled” option. Now, select the time you want the mode to be active, which is basically the time you usually sleep and wake up.
Basically, this is the time the iPhone is idle and you don't want to be disturbed by calls and messages.
Step 3: In the next step, return to the initial menu of the settings screen. Then, select the "Privacy" option.
Step 4: among the new options available, choose and click on “Services and Location” to proceed.
Step 5: the next screen will show you dozens of apps that you have installed on your iPhone. Among them, look for and click on the “Weather” app.
Step 6: to finish, simply choose the option "Always" on this screen. In this way, the weather app will always have access to your location and give more accurate weather forecasts on the iPhone.
Okay, now whenever you wake up, you will be informed of the weather forecast on the iPhone before you even unlock the screen. Much more practical, isn't it ?!
This is especially true for those who already have to get up and get ready in a hurry or without time to check the smartphone. Before you go, be sure to check out our guide on what to do when your iPhone won't turn on!
