“ have an iPhone 7 Plus. Since I updated to iOS 12, the weather widget doesn’t update at all. The Weather app doesn’t work fine, either. Am I the only one?”
Weather widget offers you a quick way to know about weather condition and get access to Weather application easily. However, many iPhone users complain that weather widget doesn’t work at all or functions abnormally after iOS 12/11 update, which causes so much inconvenience. Here are some tips on how to fix weather widget not working on iOS 12/11. Before that, you need to be clear that unlike the iOS 10, the weather widget updates only if you set your location service to “always”. If you only allow access while using the app, it will only be updated after you open the Weather app.
First, you need to make sure you have turned on the toggle for location service. If you switch it off, the weather widget won’t show you weather condition since it cannot get your location. That’s what we say “blank weather widget”. Tap on your Settings>Privacy>Location Services. Turn on it. Then go and find Weather, choose Always.
If weather widget doesn’t function well after you set the location service to “Always”, the problem may be caused by incompatibility of the Weather app. You can try to delete the Weather app, and reinstall it.
