I updated to MIUI 9.5.4.0 in Redmi 4A and when try to use the weather app, it ask me for gallery and phone permissions, if I don't grant it, it won't let me see weather, why is that?

Hi dear
The weather app needs to find your most visited locations and it can provide the weather details easily when you are there.By accessing Gallery, it can find out location (latitude and longitude) of the most visited area.
The weather app in MIUI is powered by AccuWeather, so that we have no more info about this.

Thanks

Excuse me, your answer is not logical for me.. I am seing no reason for permanent permitions weather app to phone.. Its bug and big privacy invasion.. the same with gallery.. other application, there are using AccuWeather as source too, don't ask for these permitions, because is easy possible to set location, where I wish know weather info (location permition I can, but don't must grant)..
Unfortunally Weather app is not only one application, that will more permition, as is logical..
This Xiaomi Redmi 4x is my first, but unfortunally last Xiaomi phone.. I will not accept so big privaci invasion..
Regards..
