    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.

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

    I think this is self explanatory...

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