Guo Ming-qi stated that the next-generation iPhones — presumably an iPhone 7 and 7 Plus production will begin in the third quarter next year.

The new architecture could allow Apple to switch to a system-in-package arrangement, similar to the S1 manufactured for the Apple Watch. This could improve efficiency and take up less space in the device.
