AirPods are definitely connected, they're in the Battery widget.
I was an Apple technician until recently, and I can tell you that the 6S definitely had a battery issue. However, the 6's did not. I rarely ever saw any battery related issues with the 6 or 6 Plus. I think the only one was a few months ago. Display issues, I saw plenty and was surprised it took so long for a Program to start for those. And when it comes to the difference between 6's and 6S's, the 6's are a breeze to open and takes just seconds for a tech. However, the 6S has an adhesive around the entire internal enclosure, which make it a massive pain for a repair. A battery replacement on a 6 takes maybe 10-15 minutes at the longest (processing and paperwork aside). But a 6S can take quite a bit more time. Plus Apple has to keep them stocked with new adhesive strips that we have to put back in the device. Once the 6S came out, I was not looking forward to any in-store repairs as it is a huge pain. In almost every scenario it had to be sent to an Apple Depot Facility. I feel for the techs at the Apple Stores.

I myself used to work for an Apple Specialist, and I had seen this issue since the 6 Plus came out. I actually rarely saw this issue on iPhone 6's, if ever, however I saw them constantly on 6 Plus's. Any of the technician's knew that when you say "iPhone 6 Plus Flickering Display" this was exactly the issue stated above. They see at least 10 a week, if not more. However at this point, when they fail, people are just looking at an upgrade so that's what most do. Other than that they are required to send these phones in for an Out of Warranty Display Replacement where they will replace the display for about $135 plus tax. If the display replacement doesn't solve the issue, which happened a lot, they would replace the device for the same cost. However that is only if there is absolutely no damage. Other than that, you can replace the device completely for $329 plus tax. I am honestly surprised this is just now becoming news.
