Apple Maps app was once a disaster with bugs and glitches as it made its debut in iOS 6. However, Apple Maps has changed a lot since then and has quickly become one of the most used apps in iOS. With the release of iOS 10, Apple brings huge improvements to its mapping service that challenge the ubiquitous Google Maps.
If you have just updated to the latest version of iOS (iOS 10.3), you will be happy to know that you now can see your weather forecast for the location you are viewing even if you have not added that location to Apple Maps. The feature is pretty useful if you are planning a family trip to unfamiliar location.
In this step-by-step guide, we will walk you through the steps to see the hourly weather forecast on Apple Maps for iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
Before we begin, note that the feature is now available on 3D Touch-enabled iPhone models running iOS 10.3 or later.
Steps to see the hourly weather forecast on Apple Maps for iPhone or iPad
- Step one: First off, you need to launch the Apple Maps from your home screen
- Step two: Next up, you now have to zoom in until you will see a weather icon located at the bottom-right corner of the screen. That weather icon displays the current weather conditions of the location you are viewing
- Step three: Once you are done, you simply need to perform a 3D Touch gesture on that weather icon. This will show you the hourly weather forecast for the next ten hours in the location you are viewing
If you perform a deeper 3D Touch gesture, you will have access to the Weather app where you will see the full ten-day weather forecast. From here, you can swipe left or right to browse the current hourly forecast.
Note that you can switch between Celsius and Fahrenheit. To do this, all you need to do is to tap the menu icon at the bottom right corner of the app and select °F or °C.
