Your iPhone can reveal EXACTLY where it will rain on hidden map | The Sun

EVERY iPhone comes with a hidden weather map that reveals exactly where it's going to rain.

The handy trick is baked into the weather app – if you know where to look.

It's even possible to scrub along a timeline for the day.

That lets you see exactly when the rain will be at its worst in your local area.

Apple's Weather app wasn't always great: in fact, it used to be widely mocked.

But it was massively revamped in last year's iOS 15 update, introducing a new design and some slick features.

Millions of iPhone owners warned over HUGE danger – you’re making a big mistake

Facebook is blocking people from popular feature on iPhone – is yours affected?

This is partly linked to the fact that Apple bought beloved weather app Dark Sky, bundling in some of its tech into Weather.

There are loads of changes to Weather in the latest update, but one of the best features is the rain map.

First, make sure you've updated to the latest version of iOS.

Go to Settings > General > Software Update and check that you're running iOS 15. If you're not then update.

Next, launch the Weather app – it's installed on your iPhone by default.

Then tap the map icon in the bottom-left corner of the app.

Now tap the three squares stacked on top of each other in the top right.

Choose Precipitation and you'll be able to see a rolling forecast of rain as it moves around you.

You can zoom in and out to get a better view.

Closer to bright blue means very little rain, while purple into yellow into white signifies heavier precipitation.

You can use the bar along the bottom of the screen to move through time.

And if that's disappeared, just tap the screen to bring it back.

You can use the bar at the bottom of the screen to scroll along through the time of day.

This will show the precipitation moving across cities, countries and the world at large.

So you can see exactly where and when the rain will arrive – and when it'll be at its worst.

Of course, this is all predictive so the map might not be exactly right – but that's always the case with the weather.

There are some other maps you can also take advantage of in the iPhone Weather app.

A similar map in the same section reveals temperature using a heat map.
