This magnetic lapel “pin” features the Swift programming logo in bright red on a black metal background. Although it looks like a lapel pin, it uses a strong magnet, instead of a pin, to attach.
The pin measures 24x17mm and is on a 3-inch white cardboard square in a clear plastic pouch.
Apple describes Swift as “The powerful programming language that’s also easy to learn.” In addition, “Swift is a powerful and intuitive programming language for all Apple platforms. It’s easy to get started using Swift, with a concise-yet-expressive syntax and modern features you’ll love. Swift code is safe by design and produces software that runs lightning-fast.”
This pin was distributed at an Apple Education event that discussed different uses of Swift programming in K–12 school programs.
Apple sponsors challenges for their employees a few times each year. Employees who participate in company-sponsored events generally receive a printed card and a gift to celebrate the accomplishment of successfully completing the challenge.
This 2023 Eat Well Challenge included a card printed on heavy textured paper that reads:
“Savor the moment. Food, like life, is meant to be enjoyed. Sense, savor, and feel satisfied with all of life’s flavors and keep it fresh with this set of food storage containers. Seal in your healthy habits.”
The card measures 4.75 x 3.25 inches.
Employees who successfully completed the challenge received a set of food storage containers packed in this white logo box. I do not (yet) have the containers, but my collection includes the custom box and card.
This Apple lanyard is all black with a breakaway neck strap and an integrated clip. A white Apple logo is placed above the clip in circular plastic housing that allows the lanyard to be adjusted.
The breakaway strap bears the manufacturer name SnugZ-USA. As of 2023, the company still exists at snugzusa.com, and their website indicates that, “Since 1989, SnugZ has always been committed to providing an exceptional customer experience and producing high quality products for their customers.” Although they appear to have over 100 lanyard designs, this exact design no longer appears to be available.
This set of white notecards measures 4.25 x 6 inches and features a 3-inch tall embossed Apple logo on the front center. The front of the notecard is cut one-half inch shorter than the card and a solid black stripe detail is printed along the bottom of the card on the inside.
This bright green t-shirt features Apple’s environmental logo that has been featured in Apple Stores, often as a part of Earth Day recognitions. The logo features a white Apple logo with a green leaf. This t-shirt was given to Apple retail store employees in 2022.
In 2020 Apple reached a major environmental milestone when they reported that their facilities were carbon neutral—and they further state the goal that “By 2030, all our products will be too.” In 2022, Lisa Jackson, Vice President, Environment, Policy & Social Initiatives, wrote:
“In a year where the technology we make touched more lives than ever, teams across Apple never stopped innovating to protect the planet. Whether it’s using more recycled materials in our products, or transitioning our supply chain to 100 percent clean energy, there is no part of Apple this work does not reach.”
This t-shirt is size XL and is printed in the tag area with “100% Recycled Cotton” and “Made in Vietnam.” The shirt is in its original packaging.
This t-shirt is made from a dark gray fabric and features an Apple logo on the front in rose gold. The t-shirt has no other printed designs.
The shirt does not have a tag, but is printed in the tag area with a white Apple logo, the size XL, a horizontal line, and “Made in China.” The tag information is printed in Apple’s San Francisco font.
