    What are the small hole-looking things above the speaker? I didn't see them on the black model, and have never found out what are those. Maybe that's why it is "more difficult to manufacture".

    I think someone said they were light sensors or something.

    Light sensors I believe. You just don't see them on the black iPhone. They're still there though.

    The proximity and ambient light sensors are bigger and look more like a camera unlike these things which look like cooling holes to me.

    The holes allow the light through.

    if you shine a torch on the black model at that area you can clearly see this, although its not a series of small holes as in the white model but rather one bigger one.
