Where is the little hole?

Apple has steadily packed its iPhones with more and more interesting features over the years.

But there are tons of improvements you might never have noticed, including a small hole right next to the camera.

It was first introduced on the iPhone 5S in 2013.

On older iPhones, the hole was located to the right of the camera lens on the back of the device.

As of the iPhone 11 series, it is located on the lower right side of the square three-camera module.

What is it for?

So what is this tiny indentation for?

It’s actually just a small microphone designed to pick up sound coming from the direction the lens is facing.

The iPhone now has this microphone as well as the top and bottom microphones.

This means it can capture audio no matter how the iPhone owner is holding their device.

When Apple first announced the three microphones, Apple’s Phil Schiller said, “We now have not two, but three.
