Often in our busy lives, we end up underappreciating the beautiful details of everyday things simply because of how often we see them. For instance, did you know there’s a tiny hole near the iPhone camera? No? Well, fret not, because we’ve got you.
Here are the minute yet astonishing details in everyday things that you failed to notice until now.

What’s that strange thing on your laptop’s charging cable?
Most laptop charger cables come with a “bump” near their end, but have you ever wondered what is it and why did the manufacturer put it there?
Well, here’s why!
These “bumps” are known as ferrite chokes. Their main purpose is to drastically reduce electromagnetic interference (a.k.a EMI) and radio-frequency interference ( a.k.a RFI). Some manufacturers also put up a little fuse in these bumps to protect you and your laptop from an unwarranted electric shock.
Ever wondered why is there a hole on all the windows of a plane?
Even if you’re a frequent flyer we bet you don’t know this one.
That little hole you see on the window of your plane has actually saved your life! This hole helps stable air pressure between the air inside the cabin and the outer atmosphere. This cute little hole makes sure that the cabin pressure during flight is applied only to the outer pane.
Every iPhone has this tiny hole, but have you ever wondered what is it?
You must’ve seen countless iPhones until now, probably even owned a few, but have you ever noticed that there’s a small hole on the back just beside the camera?
That hole isn’t a manufacturing defect! It actually serves a very important purpose.
That tiny hole is actually a microphone. Thanks to its three-microphone setup (the third one being this hole), the iPhone can pick up sound from any direction, no matter how you’re holding your phone. Pretty neat, no?
Why do converse shoes have two holes in them?
These holes aren’t there just for show, they actually serve a pretty important purpose.
Thanks to these holes, you can lace up your shoes in the way that is shown above to avoid showing extra lace. This also helps a lot if the shoes are larger for your feet. And in case your shoe is just the perfect size or you’re contempt with the amount of lace that is showing, these holes can be left as it is allowing them to act as ventilation for your toes.
