It's so annoying when designers change a design that was working perfectly well.

So i woke up this morning to find my iPhone had updated itself to iOS 15 (which i don’t recall approving!) One thing that’s different is the Weather app. They made a bunch of changes; some are obvious and some are cryptic.
The first thing i notice is that instead of showing high temp/low temp, they’ve switched it to low/high. Which is strange, because literally EVERY OTHER WEATHER APP IN THE WORLD DOES HI/LOW. Not to mention every single weatherman.
There’s also a line between the temps. What does that indicate?
Some of the lines are short, some are long. What does that indicate?
Does the placement of the color on the line mean anything?
What does the line color mean? Is it temp? It might be air quality, but who knows?
