    I asked earlier about my phone having the Development mode open after tapping the build number 7 times, now that the new settings icon is there for Development mode, I slid it to off on the top right corner but my question is, will having this new Development mode in my settings do anything to damage my phone or mess up my games or apps in any way?

    Welcome to AC.

    No. The Developer Options are actually there for developers to use, but there's no harm in having enabled them. Very occasionally an ordinary user may need to go into Developer Options to correct something, so it's useful to have them enabled, but if they are enabled but switched to Off as you describe you have nothing to worry about.
