It has also been confirmed that Apple has plans in place to clearly distinguish native iOS apps from HTML5 products.
The app's creator Adam Grossman said the partnership would allow Dark Sky to reach "far more people".
Apple has bought the popular weather app Dark Sky with a clear initiative to improve its own weather app for iPhone, iPad and Mac. However, the company's help center says older versions will no longer work on iOS and tells users to update to the latest version.
It's nice that rebates are offered for existing subscribers the moment the app closes, but it will still slightly affect Dark Sky fans on Android who have been using the app for years. Receiving widespread acclaim, the app quickly amassed over 1 million Android users, establishing itself as a formidable force in the weather service market. Subscribers will receive a refund, Grossman said. The service is no longer accepting new signups for its API, and it will continue to function through the end of 2021. Weather forecasts, maps, and embeds will end after 1 July 2020. But definitely expect some changes to the stock weather app in the future.
Exactly what Apple wants with Dark Sky right now is unknown. It will continue to be available for purchase in the App Store. After that, the Dark Sky API will stop working completely. United States technology giant Apple has bought the popular weather forecast Dark Sky.
Apple, in other words, could being making some interesting Dark Sky moves.
