iOS 14 weather widget not working

Some of the iPhone user the weather widget is not showing it at all, and even after multiple restarts the weather widget is not shown. In IOS 14 the weather widget is gone and doesn’t show in the widget menu when creating widgets.

 Same is the case with Clock widget Clock out of sync and weather either blank or just wrong. When changing clock widget to local time, the clock does not keep time. Slowly becomes inaccurate overtime.

The issue is not only with the clock widget with also with the weather visit in the iOS 14, weather widget is is stuck on last night forecast and The clock is working but will not update time. Surely Apple should give a good round of testing to its new feature before releasing it to its customer and confusing them very badly.
