Impersonate Your Voice with Personal Voice Accessibility Feature
Thanks to Apple’s innovative Personal Voice accessibility feature, Carrot Weather can now mimic a user’s voice when providing weather updates. Originally designed to assist individuals at risk of losing their ability to speak, this feature proves to be a valuable tool for those users. Additionally, it adds a fun element for those who enjoy imitating celebrity voices, according to Brian Mueller, the creator of the Carrot apps.
This powerful voice impersonation tool not only enhances the weather experience but also promotes inclusivity and personalization for users with varying needs and preferences.

The StandBy mode provides a full-screen experience on iPhones, allowing users to view essential information at a glance. Carrot’s widgets not only display hilarious jokes but also offer hourly and daily forecast charts for added convenience.
The Apple Watch app has also received a significant overhaul for watchOS 10. The redesigned interface features a vertical tab view, enabling users to switch between different forecast sections effortlessly. Each section is interactive, providing additional details when tapped. Users can also enjoy animated weather maps and customize displayed data points, creating a personalized experience on their wrists.
International Support and Next-Hour Radar Feature
Carrot Weather now supports 14 additional languages, including Chinese, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, and Swedish. This allows even more users worldwide to enjoy the app in their native languages and access accurate and timely weather information.
One of the notable features in Carrot Weather 5.12 is the next-hour radar. This feature allows users to track the movement of storms up to 60 minutes into the future. Available in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia, Japan, and South Korea, the next-hour radar provides a valuable tool for planning outdoor activities and staying ahead of inclement weather.
