Apple has acquired the Dark Sky weather app and shut down it’s Android and Wear OS version

0

Apple’s ecosystem has always been growing and improving except for its Weather app since it’s release 7 years ago in 2013. Now it has bought the Dark Sky weather app under its umbrella of ecosystem apps.

Dark Sky for iOS is the most popular weather app which the tech giant, Apple, noticed and acquired officially. This weather app has been known for having the most accurate and precise detail as per the user’s actual location.

The announcement was made in a blogpost by Dark Sky co-founder Adam Grossman who is thrilled about the opportunity. Apple has rebranded the Dark Sky app as “Dark Sky by Apple”.

With immediate effects, the Dark Sky app would not be available for the Android and Wear OS users. It will be removed from Google Play as well. The existing non-Apple device users will continue to use the app until July 1st and then it will get discontinued. If you had bought its subscription then you will be refunded after the discontinuation. The iOS users are still able to purchase the app through the App Store and will continue to be able to use the same.

For their API, it will be phased out as well but later on though until 2021 and by 2022 it will be completely killed. Dark Sky served as a weather provider for numerous apps such as Microsoft, Carrot Weather and so on which will affect these apps so the phase-out will be gradual rather than sudden.
