– Rapid Battery Drain = Although Apple has had issues in the past with other previous versions of the iPhone cel losing battery life too quickly, the iPhone 6 sometimes goes through some real sudden battery drops in battery life or drain. This can be due to the fact that this phone has a higher and larger resolution display as well faster processors and many other added battery draining features.
Fix = There could be an app causing the battery to drain really fast.

at exactly what apps are using most of your battery and draining it. You can either
disable the app or try un-installing it. Also, you should lower the brightness on your screen display.
– No SIM card error Glitch = Although this problem is not as rampant as others, there are still a few people who have reported their iPhone 6 suddenly complaining that there s “No SIM card installed” or “Invalid SIM”
Fix = Try restarting your phone by turning it on and off again.
You can also try toggling the Airplane mode by switching it on and off a few times to see if that resolves the issue.
Try making sure that your current software is up to date as well.
Remove current SIM card and try it on another device similar to yours or you can also try a different SIM card on your phone also.
