The Apple to Decorate the Award Trees

The physical Apple Music Award is composed of a silicon wafer mimicking a speaker, snug between a sheet of glass and the classic Apple gold or silver aluminum body.

The greatest feature of the physical award is that it holds the same chips that power our music on Apple devices worldwide.

The Apple Music Awards celebration will be held in December 2020. It will be a week's worth of performances, live events, celebrity interviews, and more.

You can stream it anywhere from the world on Apple Music, Apple Music TV, and the Apple TV app.
