I've just bought Mavic Platinum and have an Iphone 6s

Is that enough and reliable? Or should I buy something else solely dedicated for using Mavic? I am on a tight budget, since the purchase was quite expensive. Please, share your experiences.

I have an iPhone 6, and use it to fly MP and my other drones, without any issue.
I use this phone for everyday use also, but when I fly a drone set it in airplane mode.

I also use the iPhone 6. No problems with the touch screen controls. Most of the problems people run into are with the the DJI Go 4 app. The app can sometimes be wonky. That appears to be a bigger problem on Android phones, rather than the iPhones.

I'm still learning about my Mavic Pro, so my flights are generally about 15 minutes, which is not enough to run the battery down to where it's a problem.

You could certainly try it since you already own it. It'll run best with these settings. If you're not able to make it run well, then consider using one of the commonly used mobile devices listed here.

I try to check everything important, before flight, and never had some problem with my iPhone 6. Some time ago, I had an unresponsive screen issue, with my iPad mini (not iPhone 6), during initial checkup before takeoff, but after rebooting, it was ok.

But I also, never update if it's not ABSOLUTELY necessary, and fly (as already said) in airplane mode.

Also, iPhone's battery is more than enough, to fly 3 batteries of my MP. Of course we're talking about fully charged iPhone before flights.
