1. Weather alerts

Apple's default weather app received a sleek design overhaul in iOS 15, but the biggest upgrade is the new alerts. You can turn on alerts to be notified of rain or snow starting in the upcoming hour. You can also view live precipitation radar in the app.

To enable this, open the Weather app, access its settings and find the “Notifications” tab where you can toggle on alerts after being prompted to enable location services.
