This guide will explain where your iPhone’s microphones are located. There are many microphones built into your iPhone. It can be extremely helpful to locate the microphones on your iPhone for troubleshooting purposes. If the microphones stop working, you will need to locate them on the iPhone. This guide is important as microphone locations can differ from one device to the next.

The microphones on your device perform many important functions. They are used to record stereo audio and noise canceling. You won’t be able to make FaceTime or phone calls without functioning microphones. Siri will also not be capable of recognizing your voice.

The microphone is small, embedded in a pinhole. It is not easy to find because of this. You will often find integrated microphones, also known as built-in microphones, at the top and bottom of your iPhone.
