My 6's battery is shocking these days. Struggle to make 5pm. With my usage it used to last all day (10pm) no problem. 

I'm probably making this up but I'm sure I read a few years back that iPhone batteries do start to tale off after a few years in line with 2 phone upgrades (iphone7,iPhone 8) so punters trade up. It was probably an anti Apple conspiracy.

My 6S hasn't bent. 

But then I haven't sat on it. 

Never sat on mine either and it's always lived in a case with a screen protector, hopefully they fixed the issue on the 6s but my 6 is almost Z shaped, it's been bent back so many times now, tend to notice it when I put it down on a flat surface and it wobbles like a chair with one short leg!

Still works fine though, except for the battery, not sure about the conspiracy thing as batteries do degrade after time/ number of charging cycles, never noticed it in anything else but then nothing else I own gets used quite as much.

Thinking back, did they strengthen the shell for the 6S? Not sure. May have done. I do remember various complaints about bending when the 6 first came out, especially with the Plus. Always assumed this was mainly people (mainly girls?) who put their phones in their back pocket. I've never worked out why that could ever be a good idea.

I never put anything in my back pockets so that's not the cause, just normal day to day use, rarely even in my front pocket, only if I'm going out drinking and even then they aren't skinny jeans so the pockets aren't tight, I really wouldn't suit skinny jeans!!

 

As I mentioned, the side actually has a kink in it now that bends out from the phone slightly right by the volume buttons, I've tapped it back in flat before with a small piece of wood and lightly tapping with a hammer, but it pops back out again after a day or two of bending!
