  3. 3
    Use a hard, protective case.
    Using a protective case for your device is highly suggested. It keeps your iPhone from being scratched or bent making your phone look on tip-top condition. Also, a shiny iPhone has a better resale value in case you need to sell it when iPhone 7 comes out.

    Know your phone's material.
    iPhone 6 is made of aluminum material. Aluminum materials are highly malleable. Knowing that will give you an idea how your phone should be taken care of.
