    Now I thought I’ve heard that putting your phone up for a long time (like 2 years) can insta kill the battery if left on. Is this true? I’m buying an iPhone 6 off someone and they said that they never turned it off and it’s put up for quite some time. How bad will the damage be?

    You would be storing a fully depleted battery. That can/will kill it for sure.

    Battery should have been stored at about 50% charge for best results.

    Apple has posted standby battery life for the iPhone 6 and it isn’t 2 years. The phone runs down and then turns off; there is no extended storage with the phone on. Buy the phone and get Apple’s $30 battery replacement.

    IMO, you should buy the 6S over the 6.

    What exactly do you mean by "put up" in the context of never turning off the phone?

    How about:

    1. Ask them to turn on the device
    2. Ask them to install 11.3 and snapshot the battery health.

    Damaged? like blow up, or start leaking? I think that's more O.C.D. on your part.

    Replacement these days not expensive.
