2024 Apple Design Award Winners Announced Ahead of WWDC

Ahead of WWDC next week, Apple has announced the winners of its annual Apple Design Awards, honoring 14 best-in-class apps and games.

2024 Apple Design Awards
Here are this year's winners, with one app and one game chosen per category:

Apple says this year's winning apps and games were selected based on "stellar design, technical achievement, and innovation." More details about each app and the developers behind them can be found on Apple's website.

In past years, Apple Design Award winners have been revealed at a presentation during WWDC, so Apple pre-announcing the list is a notable change.

WWDC begins with Apple's keynote on June 10 at 10 a.m. Pacific Time, with the company expected to unveil iOS 18 and other major software updates.

Somehow these awards seem to have become irrelevant. Not too many years ago I’d go out of my way to check the apps out. Now I’m barely motivated to read the list.

No wonder, half of the categories seem to be woke-agenda-politics driven.

Remember when we had categories like „Best Mac OS X Scientific Computing Solution“?
Which categories and winners seem to be "woke-agenda-politics driven" to you?

Absolutely this. After the number one album fiasco, it’s near impossible to trust anything ranked by Apple employees or agents. No exaggeration, if it’s on one of these political lists, it’s a reason to not purchase.
