Premium Front Console docked iPhone during takeoff?

Any possible damage to docked iPhones with Tesla's Premium Front Console during launches? It looks like it might bend the connector a bit.
My iPhone 6+ would fly backwards with an 85D. I asked for and got the plastic plug (apparently part of the kit that is not normally given to buyers when the console is installed) to replace the lightening connector and just use an Apple cable for occasional charging now.
