Like you, I suspect, I am still digesting today’s biggest announcements. But one little one that may have slipped between the cracks is a new API called WeatherKit. It is a privacy-friendly way of displaying local weather information built around Apple’s acquisition of Dark Sky, which Apple announced today will completely shut down on March 31, 2023; it has made available transition instructions.

Apple previously announced Dark Sky would be shut down at the end of this year, so it is giving developers a few more months to complete their work. I want my points for being right about WeatherKit last June; I think I was the first to write about the existence of that private framework.
