And the 2012 Apple Design Award Winners Are …

It’s that time of year again: Apple has released the names of the 2012 Apple Design Award winners. This year’s winners include a few surprises and a couple captain obvious selections, but all in all it’s hard to argue with the selections Apple made.

The awards go back to 1997 when Apple first announced its Human Interface Design Excellence awards, but was immediately renamed the following year. Anywho, here’s the list of all the 2012 Apple Design Award Winners.
