I was browsing thru my Privacy settings and noticed that YouTube has asked for permission to access my iPHone 5S microphone.

What reasoning would YouTube need access to my microphone?

I know Instagram wants it for when you post a video.

But why a microphone for a photo upload?

You mean Instagram? It uploads short 15 second videos as well.

I think this is self explanatory...

You were looking through the "Privacy" settings...

It's for the voice search.
