Apple announces December 2nd event to honour apps and games

“The tagline on the invite reads “Loved by millions. Created by the best”

Apple has scheduled a special event on December 2nd where it would be ‘honouring the best apps and games of 2019’. The tagline on the invite reads “Loved by millions. Created by the best.” Though Apple awarded the best apps and games annually in the past, too, this time, it seems to be a particular case as the Cupertino giant is hosting a press event. According to CNBC, Apple isn’t expected to announce new products at the event. However, the event is currently not listed on Apple’s event website.
