Snippet: Apple Acquires Dark Sky ☇

Shared on March 31, 2020

Dark Sky’s Adam Grossman:

There is no better place to accomplish these goals than at Apple. We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to reach far more people, with far more impact, than we ever could alone. […]

Our API service for existing customers is not changing today, but we will no longer accept new signups. The API will continue to function through the end of 2021.

As part of this transition, use of Dark Sky by Apple is subject to the Apple Privacy Policy, which can be found at

Besides the important API changes that are affecting many iOS weather apps, the Dark Sky iOS app is being left alone, the Android app is being discontinued July 1, and the web site maps/data will eventually shut down.
