How to Set the Location for Weather on an iPhone

The iPhone contains a built-in weather application allowing you to see weather conditions and forecasts on the go. When launching the iPhone weather application for the first time, the default location shown is Cupertino, the home of iPhone manufacturer Apple. Add your city to the iPhone weather application to set the location on your iPhone and begin viewing the weather for your own area.
