Weather widget on Honor phone screen

In the user interface used in Huawei / Honor and is called EMUI, the stock weather widget first appeared in version 5.0. With its appearance, it became much easier to find out the current meteorological data on Honor 6, 6a, 7a, 7c, 8, 8x, 9, 10 and other models.

The Weather application itself is located on the desktop or in the Tools folder. It provides the user with detailed information about temperature, humidity, wind direction and speed, and also indicates the phase of the moon, sunrise and sunset times. To instantly update information, you need to swipe the screen down for a couple of seconds.

You can configure the application to receive a forecast not only for your city, but in addition to this, specify several (up to ten) other cities. The transition to the screen with the weather for the selected cities is carried out by swiping right-left.

In order to open the option for selecting cities, you need to click on the corresponding icon, which is located in the upper left corner of the application window. At the top right is a gear-shaped icon. these are settings. Here the user selects the unit of temperature measurement (Auto (° C), ° C, ° F), turns on the automatic update of the forecast (every hour, every 2 hours, every 6 hours, every 12 hours, or every 24 hours).

By the way, Google Play has a huge selection of alternative weather widgets. The best ones are Weather & Clock Widget for Android, Transparent Clock & Weather (Ad-free), Zooper Widgets, etc.

Problems with weather updates

It happens that the weather information is not updated on the widget. What could be the reason, and what to do in such a situation?

Reason 1. Failure after updating the firmware version.

Sometimes after installing a new firmware version (EMUI and Android), the weather widget that is displayed on the lock screen “freezes”. In order for the information to start updating again, just go to the lock screen settings and turn off the weather display function. After a few minutes, you can activate it again, and after that there should be no problems.

You can remove the widget from Honor’s home screen, and then, as described under the heading above, add it back to the screen. If, along with this widget, after the firmware update, some applications stop working correctly, freezes and other problems begin, you will have to act more radically and reset the system to factory settings.

Reason 2. Out of memory resources

Here we are talking about a lack of RAM, as a result of which the information ceases to be updated automatically. How to solve a problem:

  • Go to “Settings” of the device.
  • Find the section “Apps and notifications”.
  • Open “Applications”.
  • In the list of applications that opens, select “Weather”.
  • Click “Stop” to stop the application.
  • Clear cache on your phone.

After clearing the cache, you need to restart your smartphone, open the “Weather” application, click the settings icon in the upper right corner of the screen and enable the option to automatically update data. In the same settings, check and set the information update interval. Don’t forget to enable your device’s location feature as well.

Reason 3. Power saving option is enabled

The weather widget will stop showing updated data if the power saving option is automatically or manually enabled on your smartphone. Of course, you don’t need to give up the energy-saving mode. You just need to properly configure the operation of the “Weather” application:

  • Go to “Settings”.
  • Next, open sequentially the sections “Battery and performance.” Energy saving “-” Select applications “.
  • On the “System” tab, find the “Weather” application, open it.
  • We select the “No restrictions” mode.

Now even if your Honor is switched to energy-saving mode, the information will not stop updating.

Work screen

A variety of information is displayed on the working screen of the mobile device. On the phone, we can communicate with friends, watch photos, movies, exchange messages and files. The capabilities of modern smartphones are very large, and there are also a lot of processes that a smartphone SIMultaneously operates with. Therefore, so that the owner of a modern phone does not get confused and can control his device, the necessary information for the convenience of its perception is displayed on the screen in the form of icons and icons. They are also called pictograms.

Icons and icons on the home screen of the HUAWEI (honor) smartphone. What does the Home screen look like and what do the icons and icons on the screen of a Huawei (Honor) cell phone mean??

As you know, Android OS from version 4.4 began to be equipped with an application for displaying the weather “AccuWeather”. This application has a weather widget in its functionality, which can be conveniently placed on the main screen of the phone.

With the development of the Android OS, the availability of a weather widget in the functionality of the system remained unchanged. Even the most modern phones based on Android OS 9 and 10 have in their functionality a pre-installed weather application with weather widgets of various shapes and fillings.

In addition to the pre-installed Weather application, you can easily add any of the external weather applications to the system. Each of these applications has a variety of functional widgets, customizable for user preferences.

Let’s figure out how to set the weather on your mobile phone.

How to set the weather on your phone‘s home screen

They say the weather doesn’t have bad weather. But sometimes we can be convinced of the opposite, by an unfortunate accident, falling under a heavy downpour, or shivering during severe frosts. In an effort to avoid such troubles, we often pay attention to the weather forecast, trying to dress “for the weather” and planning our day accordingly. A convenient tool for displaying forecasts is a special widget for a smartphone. Below we will analyze how to set weather information on the home screen of your phone, and what we need for this.

How to Set Weather Data on iPhone

By default, the weather widget is available in your phone’s Notification Center. If it’s not there, then you probably turned off location tracking for the Weather app for your iPhone.

To enable location, go to Settings. Privacy. Location Services and activate them. Then scroll down the same screen and tap on “Weather”. Here select either “Always” (preferably) or “When using the application”. Now check if you can see the weather widget in your iPhone’s Notification Center.

Set the value to “Always”

If the weather isn’t showing, open the Weather app. If prompted, allow the app to track your location (when using the app or always).

Another reason for the lack of a notification widget is related to the disabling of the weather display on the iPhone.

To fix, do the following:

  • Swipe from left to right on the screen of your iPhone to open the widgets section of the Action Center on your gadget;
  • On the main screen, scroll down and tap on the “Change” option;
  • Enter the lock code when prompted;
  • On the Add Widgets screen, scroll down to the Add Widgets section, click the “” button next to the Weather widget. Then click on “Finish”;

Click on “Plus” next to the weather

  • Now open the Action Center section on your phone. You will be able to see the current weather information on the screen.
  • If it still does not appear, turn off the device completely, wait 30 seconds, and turn it back on.
