Why The MacBook's Glowing Apple Logo Was Removed

Back in 2015, Apple introduced the 12-inch MacBook. The first model ever to feature an Apple logo that didn’t light up. And since then, the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air have also received the same treatment. This caused some controversy, since the glowing Apple logo has been around for over two decades and has become an iconic design element of Apple’s notebooks. So why was the illuminated Apple logo removed? Well, that’s exactly what I’ll explain in this video.

I gotta admit it, the apple logo glowing was pretty nice, but if people are actually complaining about a minor detail changing that you cant even look at when your using the laptop, i dont know what to say

If I buy a product I like, I would want their logo on my product. Come on Apple! Get with with it
Remove it while selling it at the same price. It means a promotion.

Steve Jobs would have never have let his happen - RIP. Apple's quality and innovation have disappeared since the Jobs era. There was a time Apple was the best, I still use my 2013 era MBP, with the battery indicator on the side, for creative work. The 2015's and up are total junk hardware, I have a 2015, 2016, and 2019 as well, with the 2019 being the best of the bunch, not just because it's new, either. The butterfly keyboard is something Jobs would have never settled for, and the 2015's have a unacknowledged bluetooth problem at the hardware level. My 2006 MBP still runs fine! Also with a push button battery indicator, this one on the battery itself. I'll get an M processor MBP when they start making 16" screens. We'll see them lose marketshare again, to Linux and other Open Source projects. Apple has become just another soul less, style less, corporation now. I use Macs for work, but Linux personally, for almost everything except proprietary software, like Final Cut, or Photoshop.

I only wanted a MacBook for the glowing Apple because I liked it so much years back but now I’ve accepted I probably wouldn’t get it anymore and due to the MacBooks being outdated now, it wouldn’t be good to handle my games.

Worrying about this when people should be concerned with Authorized Apple repair leaking customer information and videos even Genius staff doing so, Whilst Apple and others Rally against the people they rip off and refuse to repair items ontop of their wonderful recycling scheme which sees devices that could be reused destroyed and other devices sold with a premium tag to customers who get screwed out of a warranty because Apple are greedy.

No, they removed It so that Louis Rossmann can't identify a dead backlight by shining a flashlight at the logo! :D

The explanation made sense for the 12 inch MacBook but not the other ones. I agree it’s subtle but if the apple logo is still there they should bring back the glowing logo. Apple has made too many mistakes after jobs and they keep having to revisit these issues

I always thought that macbooks would last longer than the common laptop but lo and behold, it didn’t even last two years. It’s motherboard suddenly burned out. I was so dissapointed considering it’s way expensive than a windows laptop. From then on, I’d rather stick to the common ones.

removing the glowing apple logo makes the macbook cheaper to build when the customer pays the same amount of money to buy it, more profit for the company. the removed the chargers from new iphones for the same reason. money is sweet.

The glowing logo could also crack easily and leave the screen open to water damage. Only way apple would fix it was to replace the whole screen.

I'm still using my MacBook Pro 13" early 2015 model with the glowing Apple logo. I bought this model over the new at the time MacBook because of the C connections. Mine has USB, Lightning, HDMI, SD card, and even a headphone jack. I'm not a fan of the direction Apple is going. All of their products are getting so boring.

Thinness is more significant than glowing logo? Sorry, I don't think I go with that idea. I still use MBP 2013 with the glowing logo as well as the MAGSAFE. So far I feel comfortable with that. It looks elegant, and SAFE...
