As per Apple, its “designers brought meticulous craftsmanship to create the first-ever physical App Store Best of 2020 award.”
“Inspired by the signature blue App Store icon, each award reveals the App Store logo set into 100 percent recycled aluminum, with the name of the winner engraved on the other side,” it added.
It is expected that Apple will now continue with the trend of giving physical awards to developers.
“This year, more than ever before, some of our most creative and connected moments happened in apps. This was thanks to the amazing work of developers who introduced fresh, helpful app experiences throughout the year,” said Phil Schiller, Apple Fellow.
“Around the world, we saw remarkable efforts from so many developers, and these Best of 2020 winners are 15 outstanding examples of that innovation. From helping us stay fit and mindful, to keeping our children’s education on track, to helping fight hunger, their impact was meaningful to so many of us,” he added.
The winners of the award took to social media to showcase the trophy they got from Apple.
