Well, nearly four years on, documents released related to the iPhone "touch disease" class-action lawsuit that's now making its way through the courts suggest that Apple knew the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus were susceptible to such damage. When reports started surfacing that iPhone 6 and 6 Plus were complaining that their devices bending out of shape, Apple responded with a PR stunt, inviting The Verge into its testing facilities to show how robust its processes were.
We may now all be focused on what comes after the iPhone X, but things are heating up in court over the iPhone 6, a smartphone that's now nearly four years old.
An internal review at Apple conducted prior to the phones' launch showed the company knew that the iPhone 6 was 3.3 times more likely to bend than the iPhone 5S, while the larger 6 Plus was 7.2 times more likely to bend. This tends to be less secure than NFC due to issues like unintended range.

Apple first introduced NFC with the release of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in 2014.
"Touch disease" saw thousands of touchscreens fail as a result of bending caused by normal use, according to some experts. According to independent fix professionals that Motherboard spoke with, the bending of the devices in normal use would cause the welding of this component to breakdown over time. Although not mentioned in the Motherboard article, Apple subsequently upgraded the aluminum chassis in the iPhone 6s to a new 7000-series alloy, which is substantially stronger than the 6000 series alloy used in the iPhone 6.
Apple always denied that there were engineering issues with the iPhone 6. Apple moved the touchscreen controlling-chips in question from the logic board to the display construction with the release of the iPhone 6S. In November 2016, Apple in a "Multi-Touch Repair Program" for the iPhone 6 Plus, offered a replacement program to replace affected phones for $149 instead of the usual charge of $349.
With regards to touch disease, Apple claimed there was no fault with the touchscreen IC and that the display flickering and touchscreen fault is caused by the iPhone "being dropped multiple times on a hard surface and then incurring further stress on the device".
