According to the originator of the above schematics, it looks like Apple has indeed chosen to go the SiP route, with the A9 SoC integrating the power management and the baseband chip. Overall, it is being said that other chips as well are integrated into “packages”, with the motherboard’s components looking somewhat simplified.
In addition, it's said that the A9 chipset takes 15% less space than the A8 SoC and that the iPhone 6s will be offered in 16, 64, and 128GB versions.
Apple used a SiP design for the Apple Watch and rumors have previously suggested that it would do the same for the iPhone 6s.
The ChinaTimes said, "Apple's new iPhone 6S / 6S Plus will be launched by the end of September or early October, a comprehensive production chain in June to move.
