Apple’s weather app now available on Mac and iPad ›jojo Reviews

With the release of iPadOS 16.1 and macOS Ventura, Apple has not only brought its weather app to the iPad, but the application is now installed by default in the Applications folder on the Mac. The appearance of the app corresponds to the display already known from the iPhone, only the layout is adapted to the respective screens.

In principle, the content of Apple’s weather app should also be synced between the different platforms via iCloud. So if you’ve already added your own places on the iPhone, this list will also show up on the iPad and Mac. Conversely, irregularities can still occur here in the beginning and the iPhone sometimes overwrites previously changed favorites lists, for example on the Mac – it is recommended that you open the weather app again on all iCloud devices before changing the settings of one from the new devices changed from.

Bigger screen contains more information

In any case, on the Mac and the iPad you benefit equally from the larger screens available here and the associated better overview. The application shows a forecast for the next ten days and provides corresponding hourly forecasts for temperature and precipitation values.

Other tiles contain values ​​such as air quality, humidity, air pressure, UV index, visibility, wind, and sunrise or sunset. Additional information can be added to these compact views with a click of the mouse or a tap of the finger. Animated maps with a 12-hour forecast for precipitation, temperature and air quality are also available.

A little excursion into the app’s settings is equally recommended on the Mac and iPad. Here you can still choose whether you want to receive extreme weather warnings for all or individual locations you have specified.

Current location to be released

If your current location isn’t automatically displayed on your Mac, it’s probably because of the lack of permissions. You must enable access to the location data in the system settings in the Data protection area.

Apple should probably make some improvements here too, because if you completely remove the current location from your location list, the weather app always starts with a window for Berlin by default – even if you don’t have the capital in your location list at all.
