Accessing the 6-day forecast in Notification Center

After installing iOS 5 on our devices, the Weather widget in Notifications Center quickly became one of our most often-used, if not favorite, features of the new OS. But did you know it does more than just show you the temperature? Simply swipe to the left or right on the widget to access a six-day forecast, and repeat the motion to return to the temperature view. It’s not the most complex tip, but as with many things Apple-related, sometimes it really is that simple.

Strangely enough, my take on this story is the exact opposite.  Mine always showed the 6 day forecast.  I never knew there was just local weather on it.  Odd

And I didn’t know there was any weather available from the notification screen because my only iOS 5 device is an iPad, and people with tablets don’t care about the weather, right, Apple?

I’ll be darned. Never even tried that till now. I owe the folks at iLounge a thanks!

Oh, and 2) Amen. They don’t think we need alarm clocks, either. Always found that intensely annoying.

It’s pretty cool, but I wish Apple added more first party “interactive” widgets into Notification Center like the Weather Widget or at least enable third-party apps.
