Add a New City to the iPhone 5 Weather App

Your iPhone 5 comes pre-loaded with some apps and utilities that Apple thinks are important for any iPhone 5 owner to have. Whether you choose to use or ignore these apps is up to you, but one particular one of note is the Weather app. It stands out among many other apps because of the appearance of the app icon, and you may find yourself opening it with some frequency. But it does not include a lot of helpful locations by default and, depending upon how you initially configured the device, may not even include your home city. Fortunately you can add and delete cities at will from the iPhone 5 weather app.

Do you have a case yet for your iPhone 5? Amazon has a great selection of interesting and affordable cases that can suit any need.

 

Add or Delete a City from the iPhone 5 Weather App

Unfortunately that information is not very helpful for many people, so you can delete the Cupertino entry and add your own information if you so choose. We are going to show you how to add a city first, then how to delete one.
