Unlike Android, the iPhone doesn’t show the weather forecast on its lock screen. Fortunately, there’s a hidden feature that will show you the day’s weather report when you use your Apple smartphone in the morning. Here’s how to enable it.
This feature is more like a side effect of Do Not Disturb’s Scheduled feature available in iOS 12 and later. Once you enabled it, and you give the Weather app access to your location, you’ll see a forecast report for the day when you first tap the lock screen after the Do Not Disturb period is over.
Open the “Settings” app on your iPhone and go to the “Do Not Disturb” section.
Next, tap the toggle next to the “Scheduled” option. As we’re setting up a schedule, we don’t need to turn on the Do Not Disturb toggle right now.
Set the starting and ending time for Do Not Disturb. You should set the end time to be around 10 to 15 minutes before you wake up.
Finally, tap the toggle next to the Dim Lock Screen option. This feature will dim the lock screen and ensure that the screen won’t light up when you get new notifications. New notifications will now directly go to the Notification Center and won’t appear on the lock screen until the Do Not Disturb schedule is over.
Now, go back to the Settings app’s main screen and tap the “Privacy” option.
Select the “Location Services” option.
Here, choose the “Weather” app.
Now, tap the “While Using the App” button to give the Weather app permission to see your location, so it can show you the local forecast.
Now, you’re all set. The next morning, when you wake up, and the Do Not Disturb time ends, you’ll see the day’s weather report on your Lock screen. You’ll see the current temperature, the high for the day, and if it’s going to rain.
Now that you’re starting to use the Do Not Disturb feature, take a look at our guide on mastering iPhone notifications.
