Question: Weather app issues: iPhone 4S iOS 7

I no longer seem to be able to add locations to the built in weather app, since updating to iOS 7.

Any location i type, i get the "validating city..." message, then the "no results found".

I have tried rebooting iPhone, cycling wifi and mobile data, closing app etc. nothing seems to work.

This happens whether i use a city name, a post code, or an airport.

Any help would be much appreciated.



iPhone 4S, iOS 7, Black 16GB

@James_0807. No you will not lose any content. This type of reset just resets the settings on the phone back to Factory Defaults. You will have to reset everything you have turned on or off in settings, but this generally clears up this kind of problem.

Done the reset and it seems to have worked.

Still buggy as anything though: If i search for turin for example, i still get no results. But if i search for Torino (Turin in Italian), it shows up, but offers Turin as an alternative. I mean what on earth?

And as a side note, weather no longer shows up in the notification centre. grrrrr

But thanks.

DON'T DO THIS if you have your phone tethered via a USB cable to your machine. At the least be sure to backup your laptop's keychain (which I did NOT do). I followed this advice and it wiped out all of the WiFi passwords I had on my iPHone and THEN reached over to my 2013 Macbook Pro laptop and quietly DELETED those same WiFi passwords from my Keychain!!

It does not seem to have done this with my iPad fortunately which was NOT tethered to my laptop at the time. I was worried that iCould keychain sync might have wiped this info from ALL my sync'd devices. Apple should at LEAST warn the user doing this on their tethered device that this will affect their mac keychain.
