iOS 5: Weather App Allows Location Update

One other new feature I like is that in the Weather app, there is a new feature called "current location".  It's able to figure out via Location Services where you are and provide you with the current location.  If you enable that, the location if where you're at appears in Notification Center.

A lot of times, I'm pretty much just around town but in different parts.  And where I live in the Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley area of Los Angeles, the weather can change pretty dramatically from one location to another.

And especially if you're traveling, you probably want to know if before you head out of the hotel what the weather is going to be like.  Local Weather helps.  Of course, if you have the iPhone 4S, you can simply ask Siri which is quicker.

But having Location Weather in the Notification Center is a nice touch.
