The iconic rainbow Apple logo that originated in 1977 could make an appearance on Apple products this year.
Apple stopped using the rainbow logo in 1999 in favour of a monochrome 3D Apple logo, but a new rumour claims the company is considering bringing it back.
MacRumors shared the rainbow logo comeback rumor this morning citing a “well-connected tipster, who in turn cites a corporate Apple employee in Cupertino.”
Details on which Apple products might get the new old logo weren’t given. Apple could bring it back to the Mac. Adding it to some special edition or (PRODUCT)RED iPhones could make sense too.
In 2014 we punished and article titles: Is The Old Apple Logo Coming Back to Life? in which we look at some Apple adverts which displayed the rainbow logo and since that day Apple has been subtly using the logo in a number of adverts and has been using the colour pallet for other purposes including decorating hallways and stairs at Apple Park along with the rainbow decorated stage for a Lady Gaga concert at Apple Park.
There have been some clues earlier this year that Apple might be ready to embrace its old logo again. Apple renewed it’s trademark on the logo last year. Jony Ive also meticulously created a rainbow stage at Apple Park that used the rainbow Apple logo’s design. Although Ive was a fan of minimalist design, even he seemed to want to bring the rainbow Apple logo back.
