2. Front microphone

This microphone is used for video calls, Siri, voice recording with the Voice Memos app, and phone calls. It’s located at the top of your iPhone near where your ear would be if you’re holding it normally in portrait mode.

if you have a black iPhone 8 this camera might be almost invisible as it blends in with the body of the phone. However, it’s clearly visible in any other color.

3. Rear microphone

This microphone is used for video recording and photos with the rear camera. It’s located at the backside of your iPhone right next to the camera, so you can’t see it unless someone takes a picture of your phone from behind!

  1. I have an IPhone 8+ and all the sudden, it won’t let me talk text on messenger but it will type out my search on Google. Why is that and how do I fix this problem? Could I have damaged a microphone?

  2. My iphone 8 is working on the front and back microphone based on video recordings in both front and back camera mode. The phone call microphone works for phone calls.
    The following apps do not work, voice recording, facetime, and a piano tuner app that i have downloaded. Any ideas?
