https://safirsoft.com iOS, web versions of Dark Sky weather app will shut down in 2022

Apple already shut down the Android version after acquiring the app last year.

A new blog post from the developers of Apple-owned, hyperlocal weather app Dark Sky has announced that the iOS and web versions of the app, as well as the Dark Sky API, will sunset at the end of 2022.

Here's the exact wording from the blog post:

Support for the Dark Sky API service for existing customers will continue until the end of 2022. The iOS app and Dark Sky website will also be available until the end of 2022.

Dark Sky's developers initially said the API would shut down at the end of 2021, but this new end-of-2022 target obviously moves things back a bit. This is the first time we've heard about an end date for the iOS app, though.

Further ReadingApple announces iOS 15 and iPadOS 15When news first broke that Apple acquired Dark Sky early last year, a blog post from the Dark Sky team stated that the iOS app would not see any changes "at this time," while also warning that the Android version would be shuttered.

Apple went on shut down the Android version of the app last August, but the iOS and web experiences (as well as the API) continued.

Apple's iOS 14 added some Dark Sky-like features last year, and even more are coming in iOS 15 later this year. New Weather features planned for iOS 15 include hour-by-hour precipitation notifications, an overhaul of the animated backgrounds, and various other design changes.

Before its acquisition by Apple for an undisclosed sum, Dark Sky was a widely beloved third-party weather app for both iOS and Android. It offered more granular and local data than the baked-in solutions on those two platforms.
