The ‘Artists’ icon on an iPhone or iPod touch is a silhouette of Bono, the lead singer for U2.

Back in 2004, Bono and the other Irish rockers had a very close-knit relationship with Apple. The band filmed an iPod commercial, had their entire 400-song discography featured in the first iTunes ‘Digital Box Set,’ and even were featured on their very own limited-edition ‘U2 iPod’! The band has since moved on to form a partnership with rival company Blackberry, but you can still see Bono’s likeness on your iGadgets! 

Another bit of iPhone trivia: The red pin on the Maps logo is located at the address of Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, California. Click here for more of the secrets behind the Apple icons.
