I'm new to Apple and Iphone and purchased an Iphone 5.  Has worked fairly well, but the weather app will not update the local weather.  I've turned it off and on and done a couple hard restarts, but nothing.  I've checked the web and it appears others are having the same problem and it may be hardware related.  Can someone tell me how to get this to work?  I have location services on and up until yesterday, it worked fine.  It brings up the town I'm in, but the weather never shows.

iPhone 5, iOS 6.0.1

    If the internet is working in general on your phone then it's not a hardware issue.  Maybe the feed from yahoo weather is down for the moment

    same as the op said, the weather app is not updaing. it says updating..., but nothing happens. the strange thing is, if i set my hometown it will show the weather, but not if i use the location service (gps)

    Ditto. All the other locations I set are showing fine but it is my hometown, local weather that is not showing, just keeps updating. Very strange. Just started this morning.

    I have the same issue when opeing the app, i'm in London.

     

    But the Notification Center Widget seems to be updating fine?

     

    Is this an Apple issue or a Yahoo Issue?

     

    **UPDATE**

     

    Just added and that works fine, seems that its jsut the local weather thats causing the issue. And unfortunatly thats all that I normally use!

    I have the exact same problem - it appears to be related to the fact that local weather is trying to use GPS.

     

    I've rebooted my phone several times, turned off LTE, connected to wifi - exact same behaviour. If I add my location it refreshes no problem.

     

     

    Local weather not updating

    Same problem here....

     

    Local weather does not update, any city i input manually will update without a problem.

     

    Tried resetting the phone, hard reset, restore....

     

    I think its a software issue, not hardware....as it affects someone i know running the weather app on their mac.
