Apple Acquires Powerful and Popular Weather App Dark Sky

March 31, 2020

The forecast is sunny skies for popular weather app Dark Sky. The company has just announced that it has been acquired by Apple.

Here’s more from the company’s blog post:

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.

The popular Dark Sky app will continue to be available on the App Store. But the Android and Wear OS app are no longer available to download. The popular API used by many other weather apps will be active until the end of 2021, but no new signups will be accepted.

It will definitely be interesting to see how Apple integrates Dark Sky into iOS and more. But definitely expect some changes to the stock weather app in the future.
