Popular Weather App Dark Sky Has Been Bought Out By Apple, Android App Discontinued

The popular weather app, Dark Sky, has been bought by Apple with the app’s developer taking to a blog post to announce the news.

While the post doesn’t explicitly state that a buyout has taken place, it does say that “Dark Sky has joined Apple” and it’s highly unlikely that money didn’t change hands to make it happen.

Dark Sky has been hugely popular over its eight-year life and has grown from an iPhone app to a multi-platform one. To that end, Dark Sky will be discontinued on Android completely following the move to Apple

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.

The same goes for the Dark Sky website, although developers making use of the Dark Sky API will continue to receive assistance – although it isn’t clear yet how long that will be the case.

As for the iPhone app, the blog post notes that it will remain available “at this time” although that is likely to change eventually.

It isn’t immediately obvious what Apple intends to do with Dark Sky, although rolling it into the iPhone Weather app makes tons of sense. Dark Sky – the app as well as the underlying technology – has long been a favorite among those who want up-to-the-minute forecasts. It will be super interesting to see what Apple does with it.
