iOS devices have a microphone at the top of the device on the left-hand side of the headphone jack. This is where you will find the mic if your device does not have a FaceTime camera.

The built-in mic on an iPad is located near the top, tucked rather discreetly into a corner that’s formed by the edge of the device itself and the casing at roughly a 45 degree angle from your right ear when looking down on it. The mic is near the middle of this side, about 2 inches in from the right edge of the top border.
