I'm not the designer (and certainly won't speak for them), but it could be many reasons starting with Apple's logo from 1977. I actually hope it's many reasons - but does it even matter why?

    This is correct, it was a reference to the original Apple logo colors. To provide some historical context, it was added in 2011 when Steve Jobs died and it has remained since. Nov 6, 2015 at 6:46
