    With the Summer Olympics opening ceremony about to kick off in London in just a couple of hours, and the capital buzzing with Olympic excitement, MacRumors reports that Apple is getting into the spirit of the event and giving away four different types of lapel pins (or badges as we call them in the UK) in honour of the games, showing the British flag, in the shape of a white or black iPad and a white or black iPhone. It’s not yet know if the iPhone is an iPhone 5 or not, but if we manage to pick one up, we’ll let you know! Just kidding! As the MacRumor pictures shows, the pins are beautifully displayed on cards featuring five iPhones and iPads on a wire, with the actual real pin in the middle. MacRumors says it has not been able to find out yet where you can get the pins, or when, but it has heard that they will be available from select stores, and will be totally free, while stocks last. It is also not known whether or not these pins will be available in all UK Apple stores, or just the London ones. Might be a good time to pay a visit to your local Apple store if you’re in the UK, as if you need an excuse anyway!

      I wonder if it's worth driving 100 miles to London just for a badge lol maybe ;)
      I had a look online after reading this post and found a pic of the badges, looks real enough.
      Shame if it's only London stores though. Wonder if theres a date for when these will start to be given away. Thanks for posting.

      This badge is really very good as it is attractive. Olympics is a recent huge event which is held in London so we must support them. London Olympics is having great rush.

      I was at apple store Covent Garden and Regent Street on the first day of the Olympics and I didn't see any pins being given out. I'm disappointed.

      Did you ask if they had already run out of the pins?
