But, this logo was short lived. Very soon in 1977, it converted into a ‘Bitten Apple’, which shows seven ‘Rainbow Colors’. Logo refurbish has been a subject of several speculations. Some people think that the shift to the apple design was to make it more appropriate for the company name. Others think of it as a more fitting tribute to Newton and his discovery of the colors and gravity. The rainbow colored apple may has been an advertisement for the color capabilities of the second computer produced by the company, Apple II. There are also people who think that the ‘Bitten Apple’ symbolizes Alan Turning – the father of modern computing – who took a bite out of an apple poisoned with cyanide that ultimately took his life.  This was in use until 1998. Then, the rainbow colored apple has been phased out and changed. The logo still features the familiar outline of the “bitten apple” but with a different color-light blue. It remained unchanged until 2007. In 2007, color was changed again and it was grey.
g) Salient Findings:
The bitten apple logo may have had quite a history, a history whose parts remain unknown to people (Apple did it intentionally and let others think about it). However, it has not stopped the logo from being recognized all over the world. Most important findings is that the company, unlike many others multinational company, does not even have to print its name alongside the logo. The logo itself already tells it all.
