Every indication that I have gotten is that the logo (and the company name) came from a summer where Jobs we picking apple’s at an orchard. I don’t think it has anything to do with Turing since the very first Apple logo was a depiction of Issac Newton sitting under a tree.

According to Wikipedia:
This logo is often erroneously referred to as a tribute to Alan Turing, with the bite mark a reference to his method of suicide. Both the designer of the logo and the company deny that there is any homage to Turing in the design of the logo.
I simply don’t think Jobs would have confirmed something like this given the company officially denied the thing and given the first logo didn’t involve an Apple at all.
