Swift Student Challenge winners and their apps

Among the 50 Distinguished Winners, Apple announced three student developers who were inspired by their families. Susan Prescott, Apple's vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations said, “We're also incredibly proud to welcome more outstanding student developers than ever before to Apple Park to connect with our teams and each other as they continue to build apps that will no doubt transform our future for the better.”

  1. Care Capsule by Elena Galluzzo: The app is an all-in-one assistant designed for the elderly. The Care Capsule is developed on Apple's machine-learning framework which enables users to track medication, encourage communication, and more. Elena designed the app by gaining inspiration from her grandmother who is suffering from Alzheimer's.

2. MTB XTREME by Dezmond Blair: The app was created with Apple's coding language Swift which gives users a 360-degree view of the trails during mountain biking. His bonding inspires the app with his brother.

3. My Child by Jawaher Shaman: This app is built for people who struggle while speaking. It will help users slow down their breathing, enabling them to speak efficiently. The app utilises AVFAudio to add sounds. Shaman built the app by gaining inspiration from her father and grandfather who struggled with speech conditions.

According to Apple such challenges and programs by the company enable young minds and developers to build successful careers.
