iPhone 4, dead home button. No more software updates.(3 years)
iPhone 5c, battery died, not worth replacing (2 years). In-laws took it, replaced battery, got another year out of it. Died again.
iPhone 6s, battery died, bulged nearly nuked screen (3 1/2 years)
1st Xs, 2 1/2 years, battery died, bulged nuked screen. Apple replaced.
2nd Xs 2 months… we’ll see how long it lasts
Yikes. That’s a lot of crazy, bad stuff. All I’ve ever dealt with is a depleted battery life/performance after about two years of solid use. And that’s easily addressed if I choose to.
