Not true. You can use the car charger for your iPhone without causing any damage to it. The car charger built for your MacBook Pro is designed to carry a heavier load of current that is required by the larger battery. Your new iPhone will draw a much lighter load from the charger but will charge OK. The USB output voltage is the same, so no worry there either.
