The new update for the weather app in iOS 7 is confused as to day/night, the time for sunrise/sunset. To find sunset or sunrise, swipe left or right on the hourly overview that's in the middle under the temperature / detail tap target.

For example, Selah WA says sunrise is at 10:46 pm today (4 October) and that it's dark at 3 pm. Is there any way to fix this problem?

  • Have you tried manually setting the time & region. – abc905 Sep 30 '13 at 15:19
  • Time and region are correct. – Tanya Sep 30 '13 at 18:52
  • Mine is doing the same thing for one city. It's been placing sunset at around 1 pm here, while the other 4 or 5 cities I have saved are correct. – user58764 Oct 4 '13 at 15:37
  • Can someone name a city with faulty info, so we can try it and see if it is wrong for us as well? – GEdgar Oct 4 '13 at 15:51
  • Even more fundamental - what set of steps do you perform to obtain sunrise data using iOS 7's weather app? Editing that into the question might help greatly. – bmike Oct 4 '13 at 17:15

The clear error would be a city in another state or country.

The sunrise and sunset data for Minneapolis, KS is going to be different than Minneapolis, MN.

Once you have ruled that out, you might need to file a bug with Apple in the case that their app is either requesting the wrong data from the weather service provider or the data source needs to be corrected. In both cases, you can't really change what happens in code or upstream and could only try to find a location that's close enough for weather purposes that has correct (or close enough) sunrise and sunset data.

http://apple.com/feedback might also be workable rather than filing a bug if enough people have issues where the current data set is lacking or off by hours.


If foregoing does not solve it: in Settings->General-Date&Time disable "set automatic time zone".
