Default sediment

I have had this cider in wine bottles (still) and the amount of sediment has inceased...is that natural, or is my brew infected with something??

Cider can take a long time to settle out. I have a batch in the kegger that took 6 months to clear.

Even cider that appears to be clear will still have some bits floating in it that will eventually settle out. Carefully decant it into a glass so you don't get any sediment in there when you do decide to serve it.

Often a 'crystal clear' brew when you bottle a little too early can throw more sediment. Aging it in bulk before bottling will help to polish it.
As far as this brew goes follow OdinOneEye's advice and pour carefully to leave most of the sediment behind, it may slightly affect the taste of your cider over the longer term but i wouldn't worry too much, It doesn't sound like your brew has an infection.
