    Tiny circular holes in upper left corner of Macbook Pro
    Just wondering, does anyone know what function the very tiny holes arranged in a circular pattern (located in the upper-left corner of the keyboard on aluminum unibody Macbook Pros) serve? I tried covering them to see if it was the keyboard light sensor, but that didn't seem to work. I checked around online, too, but couldn't find anything about them. Thanks!

    27" iMac i7 (2011) 10.11, Mac Mini i5 (2014), iPhone6s, Apple Watch, iPad Air 2, New AppleTV (4?)
    It's the microphone.

    The light sensor is built into the screen surround.
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .
