The first thing you will surely notice is its Smile( yellow swoosh ) which represents that it has the best customer satisfaction.

However, that yellow swoosh that connects the characters "a" and "z" is brilliantly meant to sell almost anything from a to z. Brilliant!

One of the biggest companies and ever loved by more people. The Apple logo comes from the Story of Adam and Eve in the Bible which symbolizes the "Tree of Knowledge" or "Fruit of Knowledge."


How about that bitten part?

In the story, Adam and Eve-bit part of the Apple thus gained knowledge and realized they were both naked. Also, it may depict to similarly sound BITE with BYTE.

Toblerone(Swiss chocolate company): Its name came from its creator Theodor Tobler in Bern, Switzerland in 1908. Combining the name with Italian word Torrone ( a type of Nougat).
