3D modeler Martin Utrecht is back with his latest render, and it's of the iPhone 7, which is reportedly already in production, with Samsung already beginning to mass produce the A9 chip that will power the mobile device. Industry sources claim that Apple may hold two press events next year, to showcase the iPhone 6S in spring, and in September, to unveil the iPhone 7. Utrecht says: "Based on an idea from tech editor Steven Tweedie from Business insider I visualized what an iPhone 6 would look like with the display pushed to the edges.
