Apple Repair program:
None. Apple has always charged for repair or replacement if this issue affected a phone and to this day has not publicly acknowledged the issue. They have of course changed their phone design after the 6+ because they were aware of the problem.
The iPhone 6 and 6+ bend very easily. This causes a chip to disconnect from the board (also due to a lack of underfill) which in turn causes the display to no longer respond to touch or display artifacts.
As the exposed pads under the Touch IC chip can oxidize after they became separated, the chip needs to be replaced. This allows a repair shop proper access and a proper way to repair. Due to the small size of the components this should not be attempted without a microscope and proper microsoldering equipment. You can contact a company that offers board repair services.
