You can type the Apple logo on Windows or Mac notebooks and computers in several different ways: by locating the logo in Windows’ character map, using a Windows shortcut (typing “F000” and then pressing Alt + X), via a quick stroke of a few keys on Mac (holding down down  Option +  Shift + K) or with a replacement shortcut on Mac. This tutorial will cover each of the four methods in detail, thereby equipping you to type the logo in Windows and iOS operating systems alike. Interested in inserting an  into your text?
