A new concept shows the Weather app of iOS-style Dark Sky
With a move really unexpected, Apple announced that it has acquired the popular weather app Dark Sky. Even if the company says that there will be changes to Dark Sky for iOS at this time, we can expect that Apple will integrate the app with Weather for iOS.
Based this information, the designer Parker Ortolani has created a concept that imagines how would be the Weather app of Apple ridisegnandola on the basis of a Dark Sky.
Dark Sky is known for providing detailed information on the forecasts of the time, with data updated to the minute, map, advanced, real-time notifications and more. The idea is to show how Apple can benefit from all these data with a new app in Meteor for iOS, and also adopting the guidelines of the company.
Ortolani imagine a clean design without the colored backgrounds and animated introduced by Apple in 2013 with iOS 7. On the contrary, the Weather app will automatically adapt according to the theme light and dark system. The main page would show a weather forecast more detailed with a projection of precipitation in the graph, as well as a radar map with the data of temperature, precipitation and wind speed.
Another interesting feature that the concept of the show is the notification system of the forecast of the time of Dark Sky, so that users do not have to open the app continuously.
One thing to note is that the current Weather app is native to Apple is only available for the iPhone and the Apple Watch, while Dark Sky is also available for iPad. Could be the opportunity to bring the Weather app the official on multiple platforms such as iPadOS and even macOS with the technology of Catalyst.
Because Apple has just acquired Dark Sky, we don’t know if they’re planning to integrate its functionality into iOS 14, that should be announced in June.
