iPhone default weather app : I can't delete cities.
I'm using iPhone 4S with latest updates of iOS.
In the default weahter app, I added several cities (Detroit, Seoul, Shanghai, etc) for the weather conditions but recently, I changed my mind that I need only the weather in my local city wherever I am.
So I decided to delete the cities I already registered, but checking after several hours after delete, the cities I deleted were shown up again automatically, I don't know why.
This is very annoying and this kind of weather app should work flawlessly because it's very simple.
I don't see iCloud backup this cities in the weather app, so I don't think this is synced, and if I delete cities, that is locally affected for my iPhone only, not other iPhone or iPad I have.
One potential problem I think is.. I found that the default weather app uses yahoo's weather service. When I clicked the trademark on the app, it directed me to Yahoo Korea site (yes, I live in South Korea), but Yahoo Korea's service discontinued 12/31/2012. Maybe, this is the issue, Yahoo Korea's service discontinue is causing this issue?
The only way I know of is to open the app tap on the "i", tap on the "-" or the name of the city you want to delete, the minus spins around , then tap delete
Thanks and yes, that's what I exactly did to delete cities. But after several hours, the cities I deleted show up again.
As you know, this is the default app and can't be deleted from the Home Screen, so I can't uninstall this app and re-install.
Yes it is a native app and can't be deleted I know that
I have exactly the same problem and am based in Ireland (so not a Korea server problem)
Did you ever get an answer ?
No, I haven't got an answer. I'm still deleting cities.
And they keep popping up and re-appearing?
Yes, it's correct. Whenever I deleted the cities, after several hours, they are re-apprearing.
I'm actually having the same issue. The apps keep restoring the cities that I deleted. I have no idea what is going on. Has anyone find a solution?
