Appleinsider has one of the worst track records for getting information/rumors correct. One of the only sites that is slightly worse is Mac-Rumors.com.

As you can see, even with all of their "inside" sources, they are still oblivious to most things Apple actually does release. When they do speculate about what is coming, it is clear that their "inside" information is nothing more than an educated guess, as shown by their inability to actually get the information 100% accurate (even with their "credible, inside" sources).
