4> Weather and other info
Weather, stock prices and sports fixtures and results are key categories that have been added to Spotlight’s search results. Just enter ‘weather’ to get a ten-day local forecast for your local area, or specify a location, such as ‘weather in Glasgow’. Spotlight isn’t so flexible here as it is for file searches; deviate too much and it won’t understand. It returns sports fixtures and match results when you type a team name, but only for American and Premier League football, basketball, ice hockey and baseball. To look up stock market information, enter the word ‘stock’ followed by a company name or its stock symbol – AAPL, BT or TSCO, for example.
