Apple Design Awards 2017 Winners Announced

Apple has traditionally held its annual awards for app developers – the Apple Design Awards – in a public ceremony on the first night of WWDC, where all developers are typically encouraged to attend. But this year there was no public award show, and instead Apple recognized standout developers in a smaller, private forum according to Rene Ritchie of iMore. Ritchie also notes that Apple won’t say whether future ADAs will follow this year’s new approach, revert to the patterns of past tradition, or do something else entirely.

The Apple Design Awards are Apple’s way of showcasing the very best apps across all of its software platforms – iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS. And with this year’s batch of winners, that certainly stands true.

Below is the full list of award winners, each of which you can learn more about at the dedicated Apple Design Awards page on Apple’s website.
