Apple's Weather App Oddly Stops Displaying 69 Degrees

Not nice.

The Weather app on several Apple iOS versions is reportedly refusing to display the number 69 despite the fact that it marks the real temperature of a location.

According to The Verge, it’s unclear if the odd ban of 69 degrees is simply a bug or an intentional move by Apple. The Weather app supposedly rounds 69 degrees up to 70 or down to 68, but the widget on the Apple home screen and the information from Weather.com — where Apple sources its data — can both still display 69 degrees.

A possible reason behind the lack of 69 degrees could be the temperature conversion; Apple receives its Weather data in Celsius, and the conversion to Fahrenheit will leave it with an extra number after the decimal point. For example, 20 degrees Celsius is 68 degrees Fahrenheit, but 20 degrees Celsius is 69.8 degrees in Fahrenheit — which can be rounded up to 70. The Verge also notes that the Weather app has comparable problems with temperatures like 65 degrees (18 degrees Celsius is 64.4 degrees Fahrenheit, and 19 degrees Celsius is 66.2 degrees Fahrenheit).

Elsewhere in tech, Apple dropped a $99 USD MagSafe Battery Pack for the iPhone 12.
