Apple has acquired the Dark Sky weather app, Dark Sky announced today.
There will be no changes to Dark Sky for iOS at this time. It will continue to be available for purchase in the App Store.
Today we have some important and exciting news to share: Dark Sky has joined Apple.
Our goal has always been to provide the world with the best weather information possible, to help as many people as we can stay dry and safe, and to do so in a way that respects your privacy.
There is no better place to accomplish these goals than at Apple. We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to reach far more people, with far more impact, than we ever could alone…
Android and Wear OS App: The app will no longer be available for download. Service to existing users and subscribers will continue until July 1, 2020, at which point the app will be shut down. Subscribers who are still active at that time will receive a refund.
Weather forecasts, maps, and embeds will continue until July 1, 2020. The website will remain active beyond that time in support of API and iOS App customers.
MacDailyNews Take: Our favorite weather app, one that has a coveted complication on all of our Apple Watches is Dark Sky, so this news that Apple has acquired Dark Sky is excellent! And, yet again, Android gets even worse. 🙂
