    Hi guys I don't remember where but I read there was a possibility they would bring back the Apple logo light (on the back of the LCD).

    1. Have you heard the same rumor?
    2. Rumors about the back of the logo light by earliest in 2019?

    I tried searching for that rumor, which I also read at one point about it returning, but I could not find any results. Once Apple usually removes certain features, they don’t usually likely return. I doubt the Apple logo light will return.

    I haven’t heard that rumour, though I think it would look cool if they kept the solid SS Apple logo, but allowed a small amount of backlight to show around the edges so you get the outline lighting up in the dark

    Maybe I'm in the minority, but I really like the new stainless steel logos. They're a little flashy without being too obnoxious, and seem a little bit more modern. The light up ones were great, but after 17 years it was nice to have a change.

    I feel the same, it was good but it was a bit too tacky.

    It's gone, and it's not coming back. The rumor was completely made up to begin with.

    Yes, I liked the lite-up Apple logo, but I think it is gone for good. Too bad. Understand that a change may be necessary, but some things that are good do not need to be changed.

    I highly doubt it's coming back and I really couldn't less about it as I can't recall the last time I looked at the back of the lid when using the machine anyways..

    I don't miss the logo light at all. I don't need to brag to others that I use Apple. I just want to get the work done.

    It's not coming back.

    Either logo is fine--but I wish they would ditch the touch bar, butterfly keys, and oversize trackpads. I"d even settle for them dropping the touch bar. Awful input devices, worse than even the 1998 hockey puck mouse.

    Agreed. I love the new size trackpad in illustrator.

    For those of you who miss the logo and boot chime:

    You can safely replace the charging audio file with a file of the boot chime audio, so every time you plug in your charger, it will chime. There is no risk and its easy.
