Enable Do Not Disturb at Bedtime

The hidden weather widget will appear only when Do Not Disturb at Bedtime is enabled. It basically hides the notifications and also dims the display. Only time and date are shown on the screen when it’s ON. Besides, it also shows the weather widget on the next morning. Head over here to turn on DND for bedtime.

Keep in mind, the widget will show up only at the end of the DND session. To check out whether it works or not, you can set a short session of a couple of minutes. And, as soon as it’s finished, the widget will appear on the screen. It will go away once the device has been unlocked.

That’s pretty much it!
