The app warns you if it’s raining, hailing or snowing in your location.

You have the option to take cover, backtrack on your walk, or grab your umbrella.

It’s related to the major overhaul of the new iPhone weather app that launched with iOS 15 in September.

Apple’s weather app hasn’t always been brilliant — and has been ridiculed before.

But the new version is significantly better and might keep you from getting soaked.

It only takes a few seconds to activate them iPhone warnings.

How to turn on weather alerts on your iPhone

First, make sure you’re updated to iOS 15 – Go to Settings > General > Software Update.

Then give the weather app your location information or it won’t work.

Go to Settings > Privacy > Location Services > Weather and select Always.

You’ll get even better notifications if you allow access to precise location.

Next, make sure the weather app can send notifications.

Navigate to Settings > Notifications > Weather > Allow Notifications, then select the type of notification you want.

Finally, you then need to turn on weather alerts.

Go into the Weather app and select the list icon at the bottom right.

At the top you will see an option called Stay Dry.

If you don’t see that, tap the three dots in the top right, then go to Notifications.

Tap Turn on notifications, then turn on the My location switch.

Then tap Done in the top right and it should work.

Now you will get a warning from Apple just before it starts raining where you are.
