It looks a lot like the iPhone’s weather app

It only took 12 years.

Apple is finally bringing its first-party Weather app to iPad as part of iPadOS 16. Finally. The first iPad launched in 2010, and it hasn’t had the official Weather app that whole time.

The company shared a few screenshots at WWDC 2022, and if you’re familiar with the app on iPhone, it will look pretty familiar. The app’s background reflects the weather, and there’s a big dashboard of statistics. It’s basically the iPhone app but blown up to tablet size.

Here’s a screenshot of the weather in Seattle in the new iPadOS Weather app.

It’s unclear exactly why it took Apple 12 years to add a weather app to iPad, but we’ll take it. And it’s not just the iPad — as spotted by MacRumors, Apple is bringing its Weather app to the Mac with macOS Ventura as well.

Update June 6th, 4:08PM: Weather is coming to the Mac as well.
