Well, believe it or not, 2020 is almost done. December is the chance for people to spend holidays with their loved ones (under safe and proper health protocols, of course), and it’s also time for the annual ‘best of 2020’ lists. Just the other day, Spotify trended after its release of Spotify Wrapped, a list of a user’s most played tracks in a year. Apple also released its annual list of best apps and games. App Store editors selected the winners based on quality, design, usability, and Apple technology:

The “Best of 2020” winners this year include a number of apps that helped people transition to a life spent at home. For example, home workout app Wakeout! won iPhone App of the Year, while Zoom snagged the top spot as the iPad App of the Year.
Disney+, which helped families keep kids entertained during coronavirus lockdowns, won for Apple TV App of the Year. The streaming service had just won “best app” in Google Play’s User Choice category, announced on Tuesday alongside its other Play Store winners.
Top games of the year highlighted our collective need for escapism, often to fantasy worlds. This year, the list of game winners included Genshin Impact (also a Play Store “best game” winner) for iPhone Game of the Year; Legends of Runeterra as iPad Game of the Year; Disco Elysium as Mac Game of the Year; Dandara Trials of Fear as Apple TV Game of the Year; and Sneaky Sasquatch as the Apple Arcade Game of the Year.
