How to find the precipitation map hidden in the iOS 15 Weather app – Post World

Apple built a few little things into iOS 15 that are not advertised but can be of use. iOS 15, for example, has a special rain function that is available via the iOS weather app (more on this later). For those of you who have never used it, the iOS weather app has an icon that shows a white cloud and yellow sun on a blue background.

Sure, there are plenty of weather apps on the App Store, including some developed by big names in the field, including AccuWeather and The Weather Channel. As is customary, Apple made a small acquisition last year to improve its weather app. It bought the hyper-local weather app Dark Sky, which uses crowdsourcing data from users to deliver up-to-the-minute precipitation forecasts to over 1 million Android users.

Now we are ready to tell you about this hidden map first mentioned by BGR. It shows you where and how much precipitation fell in your area at a certain point in time and what precipitation you can expect in the next hour. To access this hidden feature, open the iOS Weather app and tap the folded map icon in the lower left. Tap the box on the right that looks like a stack of papers.

You should now see a list of three options: temperature, precipitation, and air quality. Tap Precipitation. Use the slider at the bottom of the screen to select the time to view rain data from approximately one hour and forty-five minutes in the past to forty-five minutes in the future. The map shows you where the precipitation was, where it will be and how heavy the precipitation is.

You can also find the temperatures and air quality in the area near you by tapping one of these additional options after tapping the “Pile of Paper” icon.

Another hidden and not-so-known feature in iOS 15 allows you to know if your name has been mentioned in an active group chat that you don’t have the effort or the ambition to follow up. If you go to Settings> Messages and then turn on the “Notify Me” switch, you will be notified when someone in the group mentions your name.

These little features won’t change the quality of your life, but they can help you deal with a downpour that you were prepared for because you knew where to find such information. And with the group chat function, you don’t have to follow a chat so closely to find out what your friends or colleagues are saying about you.
