Dark Sky iOS app and website are expected shutting down during a finish of 2022

After Apple acquired Dark Sky in Mar of 2020, we all knew a super-granular continue app was substantially headed for shutdown. But while a association announced that a Android app would go dim in Jul of a same year, things were left a bit some-more open-ended for a iOS app. There would be “no changes” for Dark Sky on iOS, they said, “at this time.”

A year later, a tiny refurbish to a Dark Sky blog (as forked out by 9to5mac) seems to be putting a new death date on a Dark Sky iOS App, API and website. Writes co-founder Adam Grossman:

Support for a Dark Sky API use for existent business will continue until a finish of 2022. The iOS app and Dark Sky website will also be accessible until a finish of 2022.

It’s value observant that there’s a small room for interpretation there, in that they don’t categorically contend it will close down during a finish of 2022 — only that they’re committing to using it until a finish of 2022, maybe suggesting a predestine after that is in flux. We’ve reached out to Apple for construction on that indicate — though until we hear back, we’re holding this as a heads adult that shutdown is on a horizon.

On a upside, this is indeed an extension for a API and a Dark Sky website. The website was formerly scheduled to close down in Aug of 2020; a API, meanwhile, was scheduled to be shuttered during a finish of 2021.

This news comes only a few days after Apple announced an renovate to iOS’ built-in Weather app during WWDC.
