When Apple announced in mid-2020 that it would buy the popular Dark Sky weather app, developers knew it was only a matter of time before they had to find a new source for weather data. Shortly thereafter, Apple announced that API deleted at the end of 2021. The removal date will now be postponed to the end of 2022.
Last week Dark Sky blog was updated with a short and concise summary stating that:
“Support for the Dark Sky API for existing customers will continue until the end of 2022. The iOS app and the Dark Sky site will also be available until the end of 2022.”
As the announcement makes clear, the company will not offer new API keys to the service, but will continue to support developers who are already leveraging the technology in third-party applications.
