The mobile operating system has ditched the Yahoo Weather App and replaced it with The Weather Channel’s data. The Yahoo Weather App also got its data from The Weather Channel so it looks like Apple has decided to cut the middle man in its iOS 8 operations.

Both Yahoo and The Weather Channel provide users with the same data but it might be presented differently as the two use different technologies. The new Apple iOS 8 Weather App will also go from showing a five-day weather forecast to displaying a nine-day forecast.

AAPL stock is up about 1.4% Wednesday afternoon. YHOO stock is up about 0.25%.
