Whether you are someone that is very interested in the weather that is occurring in different locations, or you have friends and family or a second residence in a different city, it’s possible that you will want to know the weather in places other than your current location. You may have already discovered how to search for weather in other cities, but it’s also possible to add new cities that you can check on a regular basis.
The Weather app on your iPhone is capable of remembering several cities that you add to it. You are then able to tap on one of those cities to view the current or forecast weather in that location.
But you may have a city in that list that you no longer need to know the weather for, or there may be a city that is in that list that is no longer relevant to your interests. Luckily you can delete (almost) any city that is currently listed in that Weather app. Our tutorial below will walk you through the process of removing one of those cities.

All of the steps above were performed in the default weather app on iPhone. If you have another app for weather conditions then the method for adding cities, removing cities, or even to rearrange cities may be different.
As mentioned earlier, there is likely a city listed that is your current location. You will be unable to swipe left on it to remove that city. If you do not have location services enabled for the weather app then you can turn it on by going to Settings > Privacy > Location Services > Weather and choosing one of the options that turn location services on for the app.
You can always re-add or delete the cities that you manually add in the Weather app. once you have multiple cities in the app then a new city that you add will appear at the end of the list.
To navigate between different cities in the Weather app you only need to swipe to the left or to the right. Your current location should be the leftmost city in the app.
If you don’t see the Weather app on your Home screen, you can find it by swiping down on the Home screen to open Spotlight Search, then you can type “weather” into the search bar. You can also swipe all the way to the rightmost Home screen to find the App Library where you can locate the Weather app.
