Follow these steps to remove a city from the weather app on your Vivo device:

  1. Open the Weather App: Start by opening the weather app on your Vivo device.
  2. Access the City List: Look for an option or icon that allows you to view the list of added cities. This is often represented by a menu icon or a list icon.
  3. Edit the City List: Once you are in the city list, there should be an option to edit the list. This might be an ‘Edit’ button or a pencil icon.
  4. Select the City to Remove: In the edit mode, you should be able to select the city you want to remove. There might be a delete icon (trash can) next to each city or a checkbox to select the city.
  5. Confirm Deletion: After selecting the city, confirm the deletion by clicking on the delete icon or selecting a ‘Remove’ or ‘Delete’ button.
  6. Save Changes: Ensure that you save the changes if required. Some apps automatically save changes when you exit the edit mode.
