    I have always said they should have enabled the back apple logo to dimly glow for notifications if enabled. For Macs- it should have never been removed.

    I always liked the rainbow logo, but I agree with you. A blast from the past is good for occasional nostalgia (unless it's a web page with blinking text!), but the rainbow logo would be contrary to the sleek, cool, understated look that Apple products have these days.

    Fallout of the end of the Jony Ive era at Apple?

    Maybe we will also see a return of the colourful Macs.

    I do not see how a colorful Apple logo can work with any of the current designs. If they were to embrace matte surfaces and darker tones it could work. Despite the proclamation that the rainbow has not changed in meaning it still is tied to a political and social movement. As evidenced by major pretty much all corporations changing their logos to be Pride versions in June. These factors plus the reluctance of Cook era Apple to move beyond copying Steve Jobs makes the change unlikely and potentially a bad move.

    You may not see political connections to this, but are you equally certain that Apple would not be using this for political purposes? ... or that it wouldn't be co-opted for such?

    How about a glowing logo? That's a good idea!

    I can't see this looking as good with aluminum as it did with plastic.

    Sounds ridiculous. They should play We Are Apple (leading the way) at every keynote, though:

    If it looked like this, I would be fine with it. I would also like the Globar Menu Bar Apple logo in macOS to also restore the rainbow again, maybe similar to the above concept or like the life saver appearance of earlier versions.

    I am actually really happy they got rid of that. My partner and I put tin foil and stickers over ours so that we don't beam each other with spotlights when we use our computers in dark rooms as we often do.

    For $.99 I stuck a vinyl rainbow apple decal over my glowing MBP17 logo, and now it shines rainbow apples into the sky like the batsignal.

    Alright that’s overstating it but it definitely fits, as my favorite logo on my favorite Mac.

    It's like Ive is gone, and the old Apple comes back. Weird.

    That looks really nice on the black iPhone. I won’t be waiting another year if it’s true lol.

    Apple has been pushing hard to kill its ‘i’ branding in favor of its Apple branding instead.

    Maybe no one said it because it's not true. I'm sure you have no docs on this. As an old Apple II head I liked the old logo and still do. Calm down.

    So it was more expandable than some of the current Macs.
