Apple’s Original Logo Featured Which Famous Inventor?
Alexander Graham Bell
Nikola Tesla
Thomas Edison
Sir Isaac Newton


Answer: Sir Isaac Newton

While 21st century Apple fans are most familiar with Apple’s minimalist logo, a monochromatic apple in silver silhouette, the very first Apple logo looked quite different. Designed by early Apple employee Ronald Wayne, the logo depicts Sir Isaac Newton sitting under an apple tree reading with that infamous apple dangling over his head.

That bookplate-style logo was in use for less than a year, in early 1976, before the rainbow apple seen on early Macintosh computers was introduced. The rainbow logo was in use from the end of 1976 to 1998, where it was finally replaced by Apple’s current monochromatic silver logo.
