As the weather becomes increasingly unpredictable, many heavily rely on their smartphones to provide accurate forecasts. Apple’s Weather app is the go-to source for iPhone users when it comes to checking the weather.

But in recent months we have been seeing reports (1,2,3,4) stating or showing the discrepancies in the app’s forecasts, leading to concerns about its reliability.

Is Apple Weather becoming too unreliable & inaccurate?

Apple users are actively discussing the mounting uncertainties related to the Weather app on Reddit. Sharing the two pictures, one of the users shows how the app is majorly flawed (click/tap to enlarge).

No doubt weather apps’ performance may change over time as a result of variables like data sources, algorithm changes, and regional variances.

But we have previously highlighted a number of issues specifically with Apple’s Weather app.

For instance, several users felt that the iOS 16 Weather app shows incorrect temperature. This is besides the regular outages the platform goes through.

And once again, users are unimpressed by the app’s recent trend in terms of dependability and accuracy of weather forecasts.

Why is apple weather so innacurate? I live in the Netherlands, yesterday the app said 0% chance of rain and no rain forecast. but when i look outside it came raininig with buckets of water… don’t get me wrong i love the app and it’s new UI but is there an alternative app that has better forecast?

Those who are frustrated are even looking for alternative weather apps (1,2). Sadly for some, the decision to look for other apps also stems from Apple Weather app’s interface being less user-friendly.

There’s also another user who took to Reddit to report that while it was raining wildly in their area, the app only forecasted the weather as ‘Cloudy’.

Therefore, such accounts point to the fact that Apple Weather is indeed becoming too inaccurate and unreliable considering the inconsistencies related to its forecast.

In light of this, it will be interesting to learn your perspective on this. Please let us know by voting in the poll below, with the results to be announced in a week.
