Apple and Microsoft have been rivals for decades, and lately that's been demonstrated by Apple's introduction of the iPad Pro, a decidedly Surface Pro-esque two-in-one tablet/laptop, and Microsoft taking on the MacBook Pro with its new Surface Book laptop. At the same time, the two tech behemoths have had to play nice while integrating software like Microsoft's Office into Apple's ecosystem.

Microsoft executives were even onstage at Apple's rollout of the new iPhone 6s in September. So exactly how cozy are the two companies getting these days?

Apple just updated its support article about getting help using iCloud Calendar, and created its own Windows logo to link to the information for Windows users. This is what it looks like:

And, for reference, here's the actual Windows logo:

We think the real deal is a much better design. Apple's version of the Windows logo doesn't look like anything Apple Chief Design Officer Jony Ive would have created. What do you think? Let us know in the comment section below.
