The iPhone’s Status Bar has always been used as something of an always-visible information display for pertinent information. But while that may be true, one thing it seems to be missing is a weather display of some kind.
A multitude of jailbreak tweaks have brought weather displays to the Status Bar over the years, but a newly released add-on dubbed Status Weather by iOS developer Jax Roth is the latest of such attempts to offer a pleasant solution for pwned handset users.
It’s not uncommon for folks to make plans around the weather; this is especially the case when said plans involve outdoor activities. That said, wouldn’t it be more convenient if Apple’s stock Weather app made it just a little bit easier to see the upcoming dates next to each day in the weather forecast?
If you answered yes, then we have no doubt in our minds that a newly released and free jailbreak tweak called Weather Plus by iOS developer Hao Nguyen will appeal to you.
Almost everyone uses a weather app. You have weather apps on iPhone and iPad, and you can check the weather on your Apple Watch and Apple TV too. So why not on Mac?
Sure, you can easily ask Siri for the weather, but some people want a bit more than just the current conditions.
We’ve shown you handy ways to get the weather from your Mac menu bar, but here we’ll show you additional weather apps for Mac that use not just your menu bar, but your Dock and desktop too. Best of all, they’re free!
It was just a few months back that we showed you a particularly interesting jailbreak tweak called Carbonite by iOS developer Antique that could be used to enrich iOS’ typically boring Reachability interface with a useful suite of shortcuts and controls. It was pretty slick right out of the box, but with the help of add-ons, it could be made even slicker.
Fast-forward to now, and Antique has officially released a new extension for Carbonite dubbed WeatherModule. Just as its name implies, WeatherModule brings local weather information to the Reachability interface via Carbonite for fast and easy reference at your leisure.
Some of my favorite jailbreak tweaks of all time have been those that transform my iPhone’s weather reporting experience, and that’s one reason why I’m especially stoked to be sharing the news about a new free release dubbed WeatherGround by iOS developer Tr1Fecta.
In a nutshell, WeatherGround brings surreal weather-centric animations to the wallpaper of your Home screen and/or Lock screen. What’s more is that the effects can be displayed exactly how they’d appear in your iPhone’s native Weather app, or you can have the effects superimposed over your existing wallpaper image.
We’ve seen a lot of jailbreak tweaks over the years that could animate the Home screen’s Weather icon with the current weather information outside. But with the jailbreak community taking a hard shift toward iOS 13 in recent months, modern necessities call for modern solutions.
Meteorite is a free extension created by iOS developer qwertyuiop1379 that has been out for quite a while, but just recently picked up support for iOS 13. Like other tweaks in the past, Meteorite animates the Weather app icon with current weather conditions, but it also adds a new display to the Status Bar.
It was only last week that we showed you a neat and quirky extension for the BottomToolBar jailbreak tweak called Activity-BottomToolBar that, as the name implies, adds an Activity-based display to the BottomToolBar interface. But if you’re a BottomToolBar user who demands more from the parent tweak, then you just might be in luck.
Enter Weather-BottomToolBar, yet another extension for the BottomToolBar tweak to be released by iOS developer XCCiao. And as you might have inferred already by the name and the screenshot example above, this add-on integrates a Weather-centric display into the BottomToolBar interface.
Explore more than 50 meteorological layers with interactive 3D maps, as well as monitor climate changes above the poles, with the Ventusky app for iPhone and iPad. Aside from 3D maps, the new version also lets you monitor climate changes above the Earth's poles.
Like it or not, Weather is an important part of our lives. With that in mind, it makes sense for Weather information to be front-and-center on our smartphones’ Lock screens as we use our devices throughout the day. With that in mind, why isn’t this the case on Apple’s iPhone?
While you can definitely swipe over to see the Weather widget from the Lock screen, I’d prefer a much more integrated approach from Apple. Unfortunately, that seems about as likely as a USB-C port at this point, and if you’re tired of waiting, then you can always resort to using a new jailbreak tweak called Mot by iOS developer Don.
The iOS Lock screen has received a plethora of subtle design changes over the years, but they haven’t been quite as audacious as some users would like to see, and personally, I’d like to see more of my most pertinent information directly on my Lock screen every morning without having to swipe anywhere.
If you’re onboard with this train of thought, then I think you’ll enjoy a newly released jailbreak tweak called Kalm by iOS developer ubik. Kalm brings a beautiful new information-oriented display to your iOS device’s Lock screen, permitting you to see more of what’s going on at a glance with substantially less interaction on your part.
When Tomasz Schafernaker was presenting the weather during a live broadcast on BBC last Thursday and describing snowy conditions in parts of the U.S. Midwest, Siri on his Apple Watch hilariously chimed in to say that there was no snow in the forecast whatsoever.
With Today Weather for iPhone, a gorgeously designed weather app which features sharp design and an approachable interface that takes full advantage of your iPhone's beautiful OLED display, you get the world's most accurate local weather forecasts at no charge whatsoever.
