Apple today has rolled out version 6.8.7 of Dark Sky for iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch. This is the app’s second update in 2021, and the fourth since Apple’s acquisition was announced.

This update includes a fix for an issue that could cause weather information to appear blank. It also addresses an Apple Watch bug. Here are the full release notes from Apple:

• Fixes an issue that could cause weather information for current location to appear blank
• Addresses an issue on Apple Watch that could cause current location to be incorrect
