Dark Sky App Ends for iPhone

Dark Sky
Dark Sky, the ground-breaking weather app for Apple iPhone, comes to an end on December 31, 2022.

Dark Sky became famous for its micro weather forecasting.  Users would receive an alert that weather conditions changed based on the user's exact location. Usually much faster and more accurate than any other weather service.

This sad news is not new.  Apple bought Dark Sky in 2020 for its technology and integrated it into the core operating system.  And Apple removed the app from the App Store several months ago.

But fear not, Dark Sky continues to live on -- as part of the iPhone's improved built-in weather app.

But it's still a sad day that the app will no longer work on January 1, 2023.

How to Edit a Sent Text on an iPhone


Apple now allows iPhone users the ability to edit text messages sent on the iPhone.

Using the latest IOS 16 for iPhone, users can edit iMessages even after the message has been sent.

Here's how to do it:

  • While in an iMessage conversation, press and hold the message you want to edit.
  • Press Edit and make your text changes.
  • Press the checkmark when you are done.

A few things to remember:

  • After you send a message, you have 15 (fifteen) minutes to edit the message.
  • You can edit a message no more than 5 times.
  • Recipients can read the message before you edit it.
  • Recipients can view the message's edit history.
  • Recipients on earlier versions of IOS and Android users will see all versions of the messages.

Remove Apple QuickTime To Prevent Hacker Attack

United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team
US-CERT, the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team has issued a warning this week for Windows PC users to remove Apple's QuickTime software from their computers.

Apple has announced that it is ending support for the software.  While the software will continue to work, it is vulnerable to malicious exploitation by hackers.

Apple has detailed instructions HERE on how to remove QuickTime.

QuickTime was Apple's proprietary multimedia software and they aggressively promoted its use for years.  Often, it was a required download with other Apple software such as iTunes software.

So you may have it installed and not even know it.

It's a quick thing to do on my Windows machines.

Uninstall at your first opportunity.

Your PC will thank you.
