    I've noticed that the stock EMUI weather widget doesn't update unless my phone is connected to WiFi. Has this happened to anyone else?

    Happens to me on my MediaPad M3 as well. I think it's EMUI.

    Well, that's unfortunate... it's a nice weather widget, but pretty useless if it won't update...

    Up until now, many people paid for mobile data by amount used, so they made the app only update on wifi. (It would have been nice to give the user a choice.) Now that more and more carriers are going to unlimited data, we'll probably see that sort of thing stop.

    True enough.

    I've always used weather widgets on Android and set them to update as frequently as possible, and they've always just worked. And they don't use much data compared to some other background-updating apps.
