In this version of Apple iPhone, Knowles succeeds in integrating two MEMS microphones out of the three present in the phone. The third microphone is from AAC Technologies which was also already present inthe previous iPhone 5.

Apple thus uses the same MEMS microphones suppliers for the iPhone 5S,but each of them modified the design and the manufacturing process of their components to improve them by making them more robust. Compared to the microphone used in the iPhone 5, Knowles major changes include the number of transducers of the MEMS die (impacting directly the die size) and the thickness of the backplate.
