Apple logo means theories

There are many theories about that Apple Logo.

One is that it is linked to Sir Isaac Newton and that it was he who took the bite out of the logo.

Newton was a famous English physicist who told the famous story of the origin of the theory of gravity after watching an apple fall from a tree.

Others believe it may be linked to British mathematician and code-breaker Alan Turing.

Turing worked for the Allied war effort and cracked the German Enigma code to decipher Nazi communications.

Unfortunately, Turing was convicted of gross lewdness for his relationship with another man at a time when homosexuality was illegal in Britain.

He was found dead of cyanide poisoning in 1954 at the age of 41, his body lying next to a half-eaten apple.

Some believe the Apple logo was inspired by Turing, who is hailed as the founder of computer science.

The true meaning of the Apple logo has been revealed

The logo is actually inspired by Sir Isaac Newton.

And the first version of the logo, designed by Apple co-founder Ron Wayne, featured Newton sitting under a tree.

However, it was very quickly replaced by the Apple logo we know today, albeit covered in a rainbow pattern.

It is important that the apple has been bitten.

Rob Janoff, who designed the logo, said it was designed with a bite so it wouldn’t be mistaken for a cherry.

The rainbow color scheme was chosen at the request of Apple founder Steve Jobs to “humanize” the company.

There was no connection to Alan Turing, and all depictions of Sir Isaac Newton have since been dropped by Apple.

The rainbow color scheme was eventually dropped in 1999, followed by aqua and then glass logos.

And the current logo is now generally either plain white or black.

Steve Jobs originally chose the Apple name for the company after visiting an orchard while on a fruit diet.
