Change Apple Logo In The Login Screen

, , Leave a comment

I am someone who likes to stick to what the OS has to offer. But I found out this pretty neat trick on the Internet which allows us to change the Apple Logo which pops up in the login screen of your Mac OS X.


  1. Open Finder and go to your home folder
  2. Then go to the status bar and click on Go. Then click on Go to Folder.
  3. Type the following location, specified below and click on Ok
  4. /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/LoginUIKit.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/LoginUICore.framework/Resources/

  5. We need to replace four files apple.png, apple@2x.png, apple_s1.png and apple_s1@2x.png! Make sure you create a backup of these original files. There are 2 resolutions i.e. 80×95 and 160×190 for non-retina and retina display respectively. Make sure you have the same resolution images to avoid image from being stretched.
  6. Once you have replaced the image files, just boot your Mac and see the new image in the login screen. Have fun!
  7. The New Login OS X Image

Speaking about the logo, I switched back to the original Apple Logo. Do share your login screens in the comment section below.
