The very first Apple Computer logo, drawn by Ronald Wayne, depicts Isaac Newton under an apple tree. The border reads "Newton...A Mind Forever Voyaging Through Strange Seas of Thought...Alone."
Created by Rob Janoff in 1977, the Apple logo with the rainbow scheme was used from April of that year until August 26, 1999, but remained in use as an apple menu icon until the release of Mac OS X in 2001. Steve Jobs has asserted the apple logo was inspired by the story of his childhood.
The logo references Alan Turing’s apple he ate before his death.
The current logo was introduced in 1998 along with the iMac before being taken down in 2000 and re-established in 2014. Since its introduction, the design itself has remained unchanged.
