OK We all know about the Macintosh, and the Newton. And I’m aware of the various Apple subsidiaries that are named after apple varieties (Gravenstein, Braeburn etc al)
But how many products had as either an internal codename or as a public name a variety of apple?
Just curious, the topic came up in dinner conversation last night. I had no idea, figured MPU folks were my best chance of finding the answer.
This sounds like a job for @ismh.
Some food for thought (not much fruit for thought):
I think the apple is “McIntosh”, btw.
Yes and no,The most common is McIntosh but there are sources that use both spellings for different clones. Plus with over 7000 varieties there are a lot of names to choose from.
My understanding is Jobs wanted to use McIntosh, but it was already in use for McIntosh amplifiers, so they went with the other spelling.
Without going through the list @anon41602260 posted, the one that popped into my head is the Pippin.
