Not Updated Weather On Huawei
In the user interface, which is used in Huawei / Honor and is called EMUI, a regular weather widget first appeared in version 5.0. With its advent, it became much easier to find out the current meteorological data on Honor 6, 6a, 7a, 7c, 8, 8x, 9, 10 and other models.
The Weather application itself is located on the desktop or in the Tools folder. It provides the user with detailed information about temperature, humidity, direction and wind speed, also indicates the phase of the moon, the time of sunrise and sunset. To instantly update the information, you need to swipe the screen down for a couple of seconds.
You can configure the application to receive a forecast not only for your city, but in addition to this, specify several (up to ten) other cities. Switching to the weather screen for selected cities is done by swiping left and right.
In order to open the option of choosing cities, you need to click on the corresponding icon, which is located in the upper left corner of the application window. At the top right is a gear icon. these are settings. Here the user selects the unit of temperature (Auto (° C), ° C, ° F), enables automatic update of the forecast (every hour, every 2 hours, every 6 hours, every 12 hours or every 24 hours).
By the way, Google Play has a huge selection of alternative weather widgets. The best of them are “Weather and clock widget for Android”, “Transparent clock and weather (Ad-free), Zooper Widgets, etc.

Weather Update Issues
It happens that the weather information is not updated on the widget. What could be the reason, and what to do in such a situation?
Reason 1. Failure after updating the firmware version.
Sometimes after installing a new firmware version (EMUI and Android), the weather widget that appears on the lock screen “freezes”. In order for the information to start updating again, just go to the settings of the lock screen and turn off the weather display function. After a few minutes, you can activate it again, and after that there should be no problems.
You can remove the widget from Honor’s home screen, and then, as described under the heading above, add it again to the screen. If, along with this widget, after updating the firmware, some applications stop working correctly, freezes and other problems begin, you will have to act more radically and perform a system reset to factory settings.
Reason 2. Out of memory resources
Here we are talking about a lack of RAM, as a result of this information ceases to be updated automatically. How to solve a problem:
- Go to the “Settings” of the device.
- Find the section “Applications and notifications.”
- Open “Applications”.
- In the list of applications that opens, select “Weather.”
- Click “Stop” to stop the application.
- Clear cache in phone.
After clearing the cache, you need to restart the smartphone, open the Weather application, click the settings icon in the upper right corner of the screen and enable the option to automatically update data. There, in the settings, check and set the interval for updating information. Remember to also enable the location function of your device.
Reason 3. The power saving option is turned on.
The weather widget will stop showing updated data if the energy saving option is automatically or manually enabled on your smartphone. Refuse from the energy-saving mode, of course, is not necessary. You just need to properly configure the operation of the Weather application:
- Go to the “Settings”.
- Next, open the sections “Battery and Performance.“ Energy Saving ”-“ Select Applications ”sequentially.
- On the tab “System” we find the application “Weather”, open it.
- We select the “No restrictions” mode.
Now, even if your Honor is switched to an energy-saving mode, the information will not stop being updated.
