The 2015 Apple Design Award Winners

Every year at WWDC, Apple celebrates excellence in mobile and desktop software with the Apple Design Awards. Apple recognizes apps that demonstrate technical excellence, innovation and outstanding design to provide an immersive, fun, and compelling experience.

These apps raise the bar in design, technology and innovation with rich functionality and high performance, taking advantage of the latest features in iOS and OS X to provide unique experiences that enrich the App Store and customers’ lives. This year, Apple is recognizing “state of the art iOS, OS X, and Apple Watch apps that reflect excellence in design and innovation”.

After evaluating the broadest set of apps possible from the App Store and Mac App Store, Apple has picked this year’s winners with a dedicated event at Moscone West on WWDC 2015 opening day. We have compiled the full list of 2015 Apple Design Award Winners below.
