meaning of Apple Logo

Apple Logo meaning in Symbols Dictionary

Apple's first logo, designed by Ron Wayne, illustrates Sir Isaac Newton sitting under an apple tree. It had been virtually immediately changed by Rob Janoff's "rainbow Apple", the now-familiar rainbow-colored silhouette of an apple with a bite removed from it. Janoff presented Jobs with many different monochromatic motifs for "bitten" logo design, and Jobs straight away took a liking to it. While work liked the logo design, he insisted it be in shade to humanize the business. The logo had been made with a bite such that it wouldn't be mistaken for a cherry. The coloured stripes were conceived to help make the logo more obtainable, and express the fact the Apple II could produce pictures in color. This logo is normally mistakenly referred to as a tribute to Alan Turing, with the bite level a reference to his way of committing suicide. Both Janoff and Apple deny any homage to Turing into the design of this logo.
