Dark Sky weather app has been acquired by Apple

The makers of Dark Sky say the app has been acquired by Apple, though there’s no info about the purchase price or details. It’s a source of hyperlocal weather info with down-to-the-minute forecasts.

Here’s what Apple’s acquisition means:

° There will be no changes to Dark Sky for iOS at this time. It will continue to be available for purchase in the App Store.

° Android and Wear OS versions 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.

° Online weather forecasts, maps, and embeds will continue until July 1, 2020. The Dark Sky website will remain active beyond that time in support of API and iOS App customers.
