The popular weather app ‘Dark Sky’ is officially shutting down today, January 1.
Dark Sky was pulled from the App Store in September after Apple announced it would no longer support it. As part of its campaign to encourage users to switch to the default Weather app, the Cupertino-based company said Weather has been updated with notable features, including severe weather alerts, high-resolution radar maps, hourly forecasts and hyperlocal forecasts. .
Apple will shut down Dark Sky’s API on March 31 and introduce a replacement, the WeatherKit API for third-party apps. Existing users will notice that the app has stopped working and could not be downloaded from the App Store.
However, the Weather app is available as a free download. To get the Dark Sky features, users are advised to update to the latest version and update their operating systems to iOS 16, macOS Ventura or iPadOS 16.
