Weather app Apple News section integration: More details
Apple’s Weather app for iPhone currently doesn’t let users customise the data tiles that are presented by the service. Moreover, the new beta version of iOS 16.2 also doesn’t offer any settings for users to disable the News integration on the app.
Even after deleting the News app, the Weather app in the current beta version will still show links that say: “Open in News”. Tapping these links will take you to the Apple News URL for that story on the web.
Apart from the Weather app, the company has cross-integrated another app with specific topics from Apple News. The Stocks app on iPhone also offers related business stories from Apple News depending on the companies you follow.
The report adds that Apple might allow users to hide these stories in the coming days. Apple’s News app has started showing ads (including News+ subscribers) and the Weather app integration can become another gateway for the Cupertino giant to push ads in its apps.
