    Makes sense. Parts of the stabilizer are metal, magnets reacting to the metal pulling it back and forth. I have used my Magnet car mount over a year and my 6 camera worked perfectly until the day I sold it. The magnet being right at the lens seems to be the issue.

    Correct, if you have a magnet attached near the top of the phone by the cameras you'll have issues. If you have a car mounted magnet that is in the center of your device.. unless you are taking a picture while driving you shouldn't have any issues or damage. I've had a car mount in my car for 2 phone generations and have had no issues with my 6+ or 6s+ cameras.. well other then my 6+ not focusing but that's part of their recall, not magnet related.
