Are you experiencing a glitch on your iPhone weather app after installing the latest iOS 15 beta updates? This guide will help you to fix it up. First, let’s know the issue, though.

Many iPhone users check every day’s weather forecast to stay prepared for incoming rain or a really humid afternoon. With wrong information, people will not be able to know the correct weather forecast, which can affect their work for the day.

So, it is important to fix the issue of the weather app not showing the correct temperature or other data on your iPhone after updating to iOS 15.

Reasons Weather App on iPhone Showing Wrong Temperature

While the iOS 15 beta may have some bug causing the weather app to show the wrong temperature, there may be other reasons why this may happen.

  • The Location Services may be disabled, not letting the iOS or the Weather app know the user’s exact location.
  • Another option called the precise location may be disabled, which will confuse the weather app about pinpointing the weather info for your region.
  • VPN may be active. It will route the apps to remote servers based in other countries. if you are in India and you are using a VPN server in Germany, then your device and apps will understand that you are located in Germany.
  • A software bug in the iOS 15 beta is causing the iPhone weather app to show the wrong temperature and other climatic data.

Enable Precise Location on your iPhone

Normally the precise location is required by certain apps such as food delivery apps, e-commerce apps, or apps for booking cabs.

These apps need your location to serve you, and the precise location feature provides that info to them.

Additionally, if the weather app is showing the wrong temperature and other climatic data on your iPhone, then you can also enable the precise location and check if the weather app is displaying correct information after that.

When Precise Location is disabled, then the apps can only know your approximate location.

    tap on Privacy

  6. Tap on the switch beside the precise location to enable it.

Disable VPN on your iPhone

An active VPN will make it appear that your device is based in some other country. This will create confusion for the weather app, and it will show you the wrong data.

So you can try to fix the issue by disabling the VPN.

  1. Open the Settings app, then go to General.
    tap on General

Ask Siri for Latest Weather Information

Instead of depending upon the meeting weather app of the iPhone to get the climatic data, you can summon Siri and enquire about the weather information.

  2. Once Siri shows up, just ask something like “tell me the correct temperature” or “ tell me the current status of weather” or “ what is the weather forecast for today/tomorrow” that should do the job.

Check if  The Location Services Option on the iPhone is Enabled or Not.

If your Location services option is disabled on the iPhone, then no app will be able to know about your current location.

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Go to Privacy and tap on the option Location Services
    tap on Location Services
