This is how I start my day: I once sleep the alarm clock on my iPhone (OK, well – twice), roll me out of bed, go to the bathroom and brush my teeth while I check e-mails and the weather. With a hidden tidbit of iOS 12, I now get a quick but detailed weather forecast right on my iPhone lock screen to streamline my morning routine. Here's how to set it up.
Lock Screen Weather Forecast
You need three ingredients to get a lock screen weather forecast for your iPhone: iOS 12, the stick weather app that always knows your location and the bedtime alarm.
I use the; I love it because it keeps me from sounding an alarm every night, and a gentle alarm slowly increasing in volume is a more civilized way to wake up than a simple alarm. It's even better with the secret lock screen weather forecast that iOS 12 adds.
To stop the bedtime alarm, open the clock app, tap Bedtime and set your bedtime and alarm time. Next, tap on options and turn on Do not disturb during bedtime . This setting fades out the display and mutes all calls, text, and alerts during your bedtime. What is unsaid is that this setting also displays the weather forecast on your lock screen.
Once you unlock your phone, the forecast disappears and does not return until the next morning when your alarm rings. Also, the forecast does not appear while you doze your alarm. If you turn off the alarm, it will be displayed until you unlock your iPhone or tap the discard button below to get rid of it.
With your Bedtime Alert, you need to make sure the Weather app is configured to always know your location or not send the prediction to the lock screen. Go to Settings> Privacy> Location Services and check that the app Weather is set to Always to allow the location.
