There are a lot of things that make iOS great, but lock screen widgets are not among them. If you want more information on your lock screen other than the date, time, and notifications without having to swipe to a sidebar of widgets, you'd normally look toward Android. However, iOS 12 aims to shake that up a bit with a secret Weather widget for the lock screen — not for the Today view. This widget isn't something Apple publicized much during the keynote presentation at WWDC , but you can clearly see it on the screen of an iPhone X when Craig Federighi was talking about gently easing into notifications with Do Not Disturb.
If you're currently running iOS 12 and want this widget to show up on your iPhone pronto, there really isn't much to it. The only downside is that you won't be able to see this Weather widget all the time. As you could probably guess, it's a part of the Do Not Disturb feature, specifically its " Bedtime Mode. Once it's unlocked, the widget will disappear until the end of the next Do Not Disturb cycle. Because of how the Weather widget works, it requires that the Weather app be allowed to access your location at all times.
If you have it set to "While Using the App" or "Never," the Weather widget will never appear on the lock screen. The app is four bucks, but there is a free trial you can use to make the edits or you can use the completely free alternative iFunBox. Cydget folder, find config. Once the file is open, hit Edit in the top-left corner. Basically, changing true to false will hide that item. Fair warning though, much like expanded stats, the developer warns that these two features are not yet ready for prime time.
Samsung Galaxy Note 9: I watch baseball on an iPhone. At the same time the screen darkens so the game activity can barely be seen. If I touch the screen then it freezes the action, but the audio continues or it stops too. Close it out and wait for it to warm up again, then wait for the game I was watching to fully open, taking minutes.
Doing all this I miss the game action while I am trying to get back to the game. Then other times the video gets so blurred that I can barely make out the human figures.
That goes on for different amounts of time.
