Anyone experience this yet?

Apparently there are users speaking out regarding apps such as Instagram and TikTok which use the camera causing an oscillation in the camera's OIS coils. I've seen videos of this and the noise sounds destructive!

My advice if this happens discontinue using those apps immediately until there is a fix (either update or device exchange) as the assembly is delicate and that runaway hysteresis could do permanent damage to the camera!

Halide is saying OIS could be broken if people are having this issue: https://twitter.com/halidecamera/status/1571949735027830785?s=20&t=oBbLtc_f6bQXxr39egPaGA
