The only thing more confusing than the fact that Apple decided to redesign the Windows logo is the fact that the design sucks. Next to the iCloud logo on Apple’s support page is a Windows logo, but it’s not the nice looking post-Windows 10 logo that Microsoft uses currently, it’s something that Apple apparently decided to create on its own for God knows what reason. That alone is weird, but considering how Apple is one of the most design-focused companies in Silicon Valley, you’d think that the redesigned Windows logo would at least be nice looking, but it’s not… at all.
Apple Inc. is known for its premium devices and sleek designs, and now the company has used its skills in redesigning the logo for its new friend Microsoft Corporation. It is interesting to note that Microsoft did not ask Apple for this help, but the iPhone maker did it of its own accord. Microsoft’s redesigned logo is not very impressive though. Why Apple chose to come up with its own variant of the Windows logo is inexplicable. Apple’s Windows logo is placed next to the iCloud.com logo on the support page. Szifon, a Hungarian tech blog, was the first to spot the Windows logo on Apple’s website. Szifon then shared that strange-looking logo on Facebook Inc, and allegedly, it’s been live since May 25. Apple and Microsoft have partnered for the Office apps, and considering this, it seems a bit strange that the Cupertino-based company would pull a fast one on Microsoft. Speculations are that Apple is trying to indicate that it does not want to display a competitor’s logo. There does exist a minuscule possibility that Microsoft has designed a logo for Apple-specific products to distinguish them from other current offerings but that this has not announced yet. Another possibility is that Apple is trying to troll Microsoft with its oddball logo. No comments have been made on this topic as yet by Apple and Microsoft.
