That tiny hole is the main reason why the person on the other side of the conversation can hear the iPhone user clearly. It is responsible in filtering the noise of the surroundings making it a hole dedicated for noise cancellation via the phone’s advanced audio system for optimum voice call experience.

In a presentation by Apple Inc.’s Senior VP of Worldwide Marketing – Phillip Schiller, it was explained that the iPhone 5 and above models are packed with three microphones. The ones on the front and the bottom are responsible for voice recording and the one in the back is for noise cancelling. He said, “We can use them for noise cancellation solutions and we can use them for beamforming, which is important on voice recognition in applications like Siri. So, big advancement on the microphones.”
