TransparentWeather makes your Home screen wallpaper visible in the Weather app

The background in your iPhone’s Weather app typically illustrates what the weather conditions are like outside, but if you’re looking for something a little different, check out a new free jailbreak tweak called TransparentWeather by CydiaGeek.

How to display hourly weather forecast for your destination on Apple Maps

The next time you’re planning a family trip, be sure to take advantage of the hourly weather forecast that’s available to you inside the Apple Maps app on iOS 10.3. I know what you’re thinking, we’ve always been able to see weather conditions on Apple’s Weather app. Yes, but that’s only for the cities you manually added within the Weather app.

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to see the hourly weather forecast on Apple Maps on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

Add a Moon phase indicator to the Status Bar with this tweak

One of the features that comes standard on the Apple Watch that doesn’t come on the iPhone is Moon phase tracking. This lets you keep track of the Moon, whether it’s getting a full or new Moon, or anything in between.

If you’ve always wished your iPhone could do this too, you can use a new jailbreak tweak called MoonPhase by rainwolf. This will add a new icon to the right of the time in the Status Bar that reflects upon the current Moon phase.

The best weather apps for iPad

Legend has it that weather apps are about as old as the App Store itself. Their popularity has always sprung from the simple fact that some people like their weather forecast to be scientific and precise to a T. Some like it punchy and condensed, while again others might just want it to be a visual treat. On iPad, it’s much more than a matter of taste though, because whatever Apple’s rationale, an in-house application for weather is still notably absent.

As a result of this choice, a number of third-party apps have become household names as weather surrogates on Apple’s tablet. Even in 2017, some of the old-timers remain too cogent to overlook, but newer arrivals are starting to give the traditional go-to apps a run for their money. Thusly on merits of capabilities and originality, here are some of the best weather apps for iPad you can choose from today.

DisplayWeather 10 puts weather info at the top of the Notification Center and Lock screen widget pages

While the Lock screen and Notification Center have each become much more functional and informative in some of the latest versions iOS, it’s still possible to improve on them, and jailbreak developers are taking note of this.

A new free jailbreak tweak called DisplayWeather 10 by pxcex puts your weather information to the left of the date information in each of these interfaces, letting you dedicate the space that would normally be taken up by the weather widget to other widgets instead.

Watch live video and experience weather in real time with Yahoo’s updated Weather app

Apple hasn’t been using Yahoo for weather data in its stock app since iOS 8, but I still keep Yahoo Weather on my iPhone. That’s because to me, Yahoo Weather is the most beautifully designed and most comprehensive piece of weather software I’ve used on mobile thus far. Today, the failed Internet pioneer has pushed a nice little update to Yahoo Weather for iPhone and iPad, which now provides real time weather data along with live video of current weather conditions for select cities.

Weather Live review: get beautiful weather forecasts on iOS and Apple TV

Weather apps are a personal thing. Some people want epic details of radar, Doppler, and real-time satellite views of the clouds rolling in. Others want a minimalist design with nothing but the current temperature.

For those that want something in-between, something that looks good and provides a lot of information, but doesn’t crowd the screen, Weather Live will make you happy. The app was recently updated with support for Apple TV and it looks gorgeous on the big screen. We’ve got a hands-on app review of Weather Live for you today.

Wild Weather: when a weather app meets beautiful illustrations

CARROT Weather makes its way to the Mac

In addition to the new Mac app, CARROT Weather for iOS has been updated with a bevy of new features such as notification forwarding from the Mac app to your iPhone or Apple Watch when you’re away from your desk, new radar and satellite maps and a Time Machine feature which lets you check out the weather for any location up to 70 years in the past, or ten years in the future.
