Why Is There A Tiny Black Hole Between Your iPhone Camera and Flash??


Did you know there is a tiny black hole between your iPhone camera and flash?

Millions and millions of people around the world have iPhones but so few people are aware of what their phones are even capable of. In fact, many people consider themselves to be pros at navigating their phones but how many know what the little tiny black hole between the actual camera and flash is?

This is what it's for

Basically every phone has had this tiny black hole since the iPhone 5 and what it is, is a microphone. However, technically it is not actually a microphone that would listen to your voice but rather one for noise cancellation. This microphone has been designed to eliminate background noises that interfere with your phone conversation so the person on the other end of the phone can hear your voice clearly.

iPhone actually has 3 microphones

Most people don't realize that the iPhone has three microphones; One at the bottom, one on the back and one at the front usually hidden under the same grill for the phone speaker.

The reason for using two microphones is stereo audio recording while filming videos. This gives a better quality of audio while playing it on a sound system.

Some believe it's more complex than what we are told

Some people believe that these features are really just extra add-ons for the government to spy on us since Apple and the NSA have been working together for years. Considering the governments appalling record they may very well be correct.
