People are just realizing what the bite out of Apple logo means – true iPhone fans will get it right | The Sun

APPLE'S logo adorns billions of gadgets around the world – but why does it have a bite missing?

It's a question that may have plagued Apple fans for years, but thankfully there's a definitive answer.

Apple logo meaning theories

There are lots of theories about the Apple logo on the back of your iPhone.

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

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

Others think it may be linked to British mathematician and codebreaker Alan Turing.

Turing worked for the allied war effort, cracking the German enigma code to decrypt Nazi communications.

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

He was found dead in 1954, aged 41, from cyanide poisoning – with his body laying next to a half-eaten apple.

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

Apple logo true meaning revealed

The logo is in fact inspired by Sir Isaac Newton.

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

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

Importantly, the apple has a bite taken out of it.

Rob Janoff, who designed the logo, said that it was designed with a bite so that it wouldn't be confused with a cherry.

The rainbow colour scheme was chosen to "humanise" the company, at Apple founder Steve Jobs' request.

There was no link to Alan Turing, and any depictions of Sir Isaac Newton have since been abandoned by Apple.

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