iOS 8 skips Yahoo as partner for Weather app
As of <a href=" ation.options/">iOS 8</a>, Apple has stopped using Yahoo as the data source for the iOS Weather app, users note. The app now lists The Weather Channel as a source instead. Yahoo was already pulling its own data from TWC, but Apple appears to have cut out Yahoo for business and/or technical reasons.<br /><br />There is a <a href="" rel='nofollow'>difference</a> in the way the iOS 8 app displays weather. It for instance uses a nine-day forecast, rather than just five days, and includes a brief summary paragraph describing current conditions along with the day's outlook.<br />
<br />
During the past year reports have hinted that Apple and Yahoo might go in the opposite direction and establish closer ties. Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer has argued that <a href=" ptional/" rel='nofollow'>Yahoo should be the default search engine in iOS and OS X</a>, something Apple might be amenable to as a way of excluding Google. Google is still a vastly more popular search engine than Yahoo though, and Apple might risk alienating its userbase.<br />
