Apple Theme Screen Wallpapers and Backgrounds for all but especially for Apple and Mac Users. Apple are now an enormous company. Their logo is instantly recognised around the world. It was designed by Rob Janoff in 1977. There has been a lot of speculation about why an apple. Steve Jobs said in 1981 at a press conference that he I love apples and like to eat them. There is more to it than that though. the design was also inspired by the concept of an apple falling on Isaac Newton’s head. Also the design was simple. It may also relate to Adam and Eve and the biting of the forbidden fruit in the garden of Eden. Steve Jobs was frugivore and consumed a lot of apples. He also liked the music of the Beatles but in 1978, the Beatles-founded holding company Apple Corps and owner of their record label, Apple Records, filed a lawsuit against Apple Computer for trademark infringement. This long running dispute was eventually settled. The Apple logo had rainbow stripes from 1977 to 1998 when it was changed to a monochromatic design.
