Using Siri, you can find out what the weather is like outside when you wake up in the morning, without even looking out the window. You can also ask for the forecast for the rest of the day and week.

Using Siri to get the current weather conditions

Checking the current weather forecast is very simple.

Activate Siri on an iPhone by using one of these options:

  1. Say “Hey Siri” followed by your request.
  2. Press and hold the Side button (iPhone X and newer) or Home button (iPhone 8 and older) on your iPhone.

(If this doesn't work, learn how to set up Siri on an iPhone).
