League of Legends: Wild Rift wins 2021 Innovative Apple Design Award

There were a total of 32 finalists

Apple, the world-known multinational technology company, has revealed League of Legends: Wild Rift as a winner of the 2021 Apple Design Award under the Innovative category. The Apple Design Award is an annual event with the purpose to recognize the best and most innovative Macintosh and iOS software and hardware produced by independent developers, as well as the best and most creative uses of Apple’s products.

Unlike last year, the company incorporated the announcement of this year’s Apple Design Award winners into its virtual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) online event instead of waiting until the event had finished.

“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,”

Susan Prescott, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations

Ahead of the WWDC, Apple previewed the finalists whose apps and games showcased a combination of technical achievement, design, and ingenuity. This evening, Apple announced the winners across six new award categories which include League of Legends: Wild Rift.
