Apple has announced the annual winners of Apple Design Awards. It is celebrating 12 best-in-class apps and games from developers around the globe. Apple Design Award winners bring bold, creative, and distinctive ideas to life, says the company.
“This year’s Apple Design Award winners have redefined what we’ve come to expect from a great app experience, and we congratulate them on a well-deserved win,” said Susan Prescott, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations. “The work of these developers embodies the essential role apps and games play in our everyday lives, and serve as perfect examples of our six new award categories.” Here are the 2021 Apple Design Award winners:
