Apple Touch Icon is a icon used in Safari 8 favourite new page on OS X,or web clip in Home screen on iOS. https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/documentation/AppleApplications/Reference/SafariWebContent/ConfiguringWebApplications/ConfiguringWebApplications.html there is two way to set it,one is using rel="shortcut icon",another is using rel="apple-touch-icon" like http://apple.stackexchange.com do.So I can find icon URL http://cdn.sstatic.net/apple/img/apple-touch-icon.png?v=2a2c3caaec7f However apple.com doesn't use those two method.How can I find apple.com's apple touch icon URL?


Is it not just http://www.apple.com/apple-touch-icon.png?

From the iOS Developer Library article you pointed to above...

To specify an icon for the entire website (every page on the website), place an icon file in PNG format in the root document folder called apple-touch-icon.png

  • But I add to my website www.cuthead.tk/apple-touch-icon.png,add www.cuthead.tk to my favourite,why I still not see the icon show out? – cuthead Feb 17 '15 at 4:50
  • It works for me when I try to create a bookmark (favorite is the term used by Internet Explorer) or web clip in iOS 8 Safari on an iPhone 5S. – Alistair McMillan Feb 18 '15 at 23:24

I found Safari use mobile UA to get mobile HTML to get mobile Apple Touch Icon to set Desktop Safari favorite bar.
