    Has anyone else had issues in iOS 11 (beta or official versions) with the stock weather widget?

    I just cannot get it to update properly. Location services are set to “on”, I’ve done the reboot and the reinstall things with no success.

    Any solutions? Thanks.

    So, location services is on, but in Settings / Privacy / Location Services - is Weather set to "Always"?

    Yes, I forgot to mention that. In theory, it should work. It only occasionally updates instead of every time I slide over to the notification screen. The app itself works properly, as does my  Watch.

    Yep. It’s been broken in every iOS 11 version, betas and official. I’ve given up reporting this issue to Apple now as they just seem to ignore it.

    It's probably a push issue. Use a 3rd party weather app with a good widget. BeWeather 2 has a nice widget.

    Yes I’ve kind of given up on it too. I’ve been using CARROT⁵ recently. It’s too bad that Apple just doesn’t seem to care.

    Perhaps I'm one of the lucky ones, but I've not had any issues with the stock weather app. I run it and BeWeather 2 widgets and they're both fairly close if not identical in readings most of the time. Been on beta 11 since day 1 first on a 6s, and now on 8 Plus. I also run both on my 2017 9.7" iPad and on my watch.

    What settings do you have set for the weather app?

    The only setting I've ever been able to find for it is Celsius, Fahrenheit, and adding cities. It doesn't exist in my phone Settings. When I search it only finds BeWeather.

    Actually, I meant what location and other access settings did you use so your weather app updates properly.

    With a few exceptions (like Notifications) just about all of my settings are default. I looked in Locations and it's set to Always, which I believe is the default setting.

    Like Sherry_B, every time I look at my weather widget, it is updated. (I don't look at widgets all that often.) However, I get updated weather on my Apple Watch all of the time, too.

    I suppose another thing to check is settings / general / background app refresh, make sure that i is turned on for WiFi and cellular data, and also that the Weather app is turned on for background app refresh.

    Everything is set to “on”. Still no success. My  Watch is fine, it’s just the widget that doesn’t work. I’ve filed 6 bug reports since being on 11.1 beta (even though it’s been happening since going from iOS 10. I guess it’s not a priority for Apple.

    Have you tried deleting the weather app, then reinstall it and set it up again?

    Yes I did with no overall change in performance.

    You most likely need to restore your iPhone as new, not from a back up. With iTunes on computer if possible. I can't think of any other remedy.

    I never had a problem with the weather widget not updating until the last couple of days. I removed the widget then added it back and it’s been fine.

    Yeah, the whole thing is just frustrating. I’ve never had an issue with apps before, especially Apple apps. Apart from reinstalling iOS, I’ve tried every remedy I can find online without success.

    I've had this problem since the iOS 11 beta cycle. I don't understand why it can't (or won't) be fixed. In the meantime I'm using the BeWeather widget. For an app that's been abandoned by its developer, it's still performing rather well and has the best looking customizable widget of all the 3rd party apps I've tried.

    I use both the Apple weather and Beweather widget. I might delete the Apple widget.

    I’ve been using CARROT⁵ and Apple’s apps.

    I think the issue could be related to the “when in use” or “always “ setting.
    I’m keeping it as “when in use” and it doesn’t update the widget

    It makes no difference which setting you use, it still doesn’t work as it should.
