With iOS 16, Apple has revised the lock screen, among other things, and allows displaying widgets. Apple Home also offers some widgets, including a climate sensor widget. However, the value displayed there causes confusion again and again and we would like to bring some light into the darkness.

The climate sensor widget, which Apple itself offers via the Home app, can display either temperature, air quality, humidity, or smoke or carbon monoxide sensors. But no specific sensor can be selected.

Instead, Apple displays the average value of all sensors that are included in the Home app’s summary. If you want to exclude certain sensors from the calculation in the widget, you can do this in the settings of the device under “Status” by deactivating the toggle “Include in Home Summaries”.
