Checking the Weather in the Maps app in iOS 10.3

If you’re a frequent Apple Maps user, you might appreciate a new little trick that Apple snuck into iOS 10.3. The iOS 10 Maps app redesign added a small indicator showing the current weather, but now in iOS 10.3 if you have a 3D Touch capable device you can view a weather forecast simply by pressing down firmly on the weather icon. A light press will let you “peek” at the current weather forecast, and if you press a bit harder it will take you over to the iOS Weather app.

What’s particularly useful about this is that the weather information will pertain to whatever area you’re viewing on the map, so while it’s only slightly faster for your home city than opening the Weather app or widget, it’s a particularly useful shortcut when you’re looking at a map view of another city.
