This hidden iPhone feature alerts you before it rains or snows

Released alongside the iPhone 13 family, iOS 15 brought with it a bunch of cool new features and tricks, including one that could save you a lot of time.

Another one of these tricks is one that could prove invaluable if you live in a part of the world where the skies can open at any moment: an alert that lets you know before rain. As a Brit, I wholeheartedly support it.

This new feature is hidden in the Weather app and it also notifies you if there is snow. Enabling it is very easy and could prevent you from getting soaked on the way to work or school, as shown in the following video of our channel of Tik Tok, which contains even more iPhone tips.
