Journalist Roland Quandt appears to have debunked his own leaks pertaining to the apparent colors of the iPhone 12, just days ahead of the official reveal from Apple.

As has become a fairly common occurrence in the tech world, insiders and journalists are gearing up for the reveal of Apple’s latest iPhone, as the tech giants prepare to show what they have been working on.

The iPhone 12 is the latest in Apple’s insanely popular phone line, revolutionizing the world of touch screen mobiles. What they have up their sleeves remains to be seen, but the apparent colors were leaked on October 8 by Berlin-based journalist Roland Quandt.

Quandt’s leaks focused on the colors of the upcoming iPhone 12, which is set to be revealed at Apple’s October 13 event. He reported that sources indicated the iPhone 12 and its mini cousin would be available in green, blue, gold, grey and silver.

The iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max were reported to be slightly more limited though, only available in grey, gold and silver.

However, just a couple of days after leaking those details, Quandt has deleted his tweets and retracted them. In an October 10 post, he said: “Useless and wrong iPhone tweets deleted. No need to spread retail employees fantasy info.”

Some had pointed out that his information was slightly different to previous leaks, which claimed that the Pro and Pro Max would both be available in a dark blue color.

It seems that Quandt has now retracted the information he shared, describing it as “retail employees fantasy info”. Perhaps he is having doubts about the veracity of his sources. Whatever the reasons, it appears that Apple fans will have to wait for the official event to see just how the iPhone 12 will take shape.

Call of Duty streamer and YouTuber Swagg has given fans a look at his $15,000 gaming setup which he uses to dominate in Verdansk, and it looks like any gamer’s dream.

Swagg has had a slow but sure rise to success in Call of Duty content creation, and Warzone has helped him absolutely explode. Having joined FaZe Clan early in 2020, he’s since seen tumultuous growth on both his YouTube and Twitch channels.

As such, he’s managed to build out his gaming setup to near-perfection, and he’s now decided to show it off to his fans.

In his gaming room, Swagg has two PCs (one for streaming, one for gaming) as well as a multitude of equipment to get both his content and his gameplay in top shape.

Swagg joined FaZe Clan in April, shortly after the launch of Warzone in Modern Warfare.

Obviously, there are two key features to Swagg’s setup: his streaming PC and his gaming PC. These will be the most expensive but also the most integral parts of his setup.

Here are the specs for his two PCs, which even include a brand new, highly sought after MSI GeForce RTX 3090 GPU.

Obviously, the PCs are just the base of what Swagg uses. He also shows off a fair few SCUF Gaming controllers that he uses, a small selection of his complete collection, that will often cost in excess of $200 each.

He also shows off his streaming equipment which includes Elgato keylights, a Blue Yeti microphone, a camera and lens worth well over $1000, and a 240Hz MSI gaming monitor. Here’s some of the bigger equipment that Swagg specifies he uses:

  • SCUF controllers (~$200 each)
  • MSI Oculux-NXG251R 240hz 1ms G-Sync gaming monitor (approx. $400)
  • Sony A6400 camera ($750+)
  • Sony SEL28F20 FE 28mm Lens ($448)

All in all, this setup is what any gamer would absolutely love to have in their home, but it definitely comes at a cost.
