Dark Sky has been removed from the iOS App Store ahead of the upcoming shutdown

Apple’s proprietary weather app Dark Sky is no longer available for download on the US app store, suggesting it was prematurely removed.

Dark Sky app introduced
Apple acquired Dark Sky back in March 2020 and has since integrated elements of the app into the Weather app, available on iPhone (and soon iPad).

Dark Sky remained available for purchase as a standalone weather app after the acquisition, but the app’s developers said earlier this year that the Dark Sky iOS app would no longer be available after December 31, 2022.

The Dark Sky blog hinted that versions already purchased would stop providing weather data when the app goes offline in late 2022, but as of now the app will still work. It’s not entirely clear if Dark Sky’s removal is actually some sort of glitch or if Apple simply pulled it prematurely.

While the Dark Sky app will officially shut down at the end of December, the Dark Sky API and website will function until March 21, 2023. Developers using the Dark Sky API can switch to Apple’s WeatherKit API .
