The Weather app on the iPhone 5 is one of the most frequently used apps, and it is part of the default app set that is included with your phone. In iOS 7 it will provide information about the weather in your current location, as well as any other cities that you have added since you had your device. But having too many cities in the app can make it difficult to find the correct city, so you may find yourself wanting to remove a city from the iOS 7 Weather app. Fortunately this can be done from directly within the app by following the steps below.
If you have a Netflix, Hulu Plus or Amazon Prime account, then you probably would like to be able to watch those videos on your TV. The Roku 1 is a simple, affordable way to do this, plus it provides access to hundreds of other video-streaming sources as well. Click here to learn more about the Roku 1.
Deleting a City from the Weather App in iOS 7
It’s important to note that you will not be able to delete the location-based weather page (the one with the arrow next to the name of the city). You will only be able to delete the other cities that are listed on the page in Step 4. If you want to remove the location-based page, you will need to remove the Weather app from the Location Services menu. This option can be found at Settings -> Privacy -> Location Services -> Weather. We are going to assume that the Weather app is located in the News folder that iOS 7 creates. If your Weather app is no longer in this folder, simply skip the first step.
Step 1: Touch the News folder.
Step 2: Touch the Weather icon.
Step 3: Touch the icon at the bottom-right corner of the screen with the three horizontal lines. It is highlighted in the image below.
Step 4: Swipe from right to left on the name of the city that you want to delete, then touch the red Delete button.
Note that you can also add new cities to the iOS 7 Weather app by navigating to the screen in Step 4 above, then touching the + icon at the bottom-right corner of the screen.
