The only difference between 9.6.1-rc-1 and rc-2 was the removal of some 
no-longer-used references to an Ad SDK on Android. 9.6.1 was the same as 
9.6.1-rc-2 (except for version).

Apple update their review processes all the time, so it is possible they 
changed something between the two app submissions.

The most important question here is: Can you reproduce the request for 
microphone access which Apple observed?

If not, then you need to find out how they did and dispute the rejection 
- it could be human error on their side...

If you can, then it suggests that you might have some code buried 
somewhere setting the audio category - or use of the video camera is 
using a default category Apple doesn't like.

Make sure you aren't asking for a video camera with both audio and video 
- i.e. just audio only.

Failing that, there is mergAVAudioSessionSetCategory - you could try 
explicitly setting the category to "ambient" on startup.

Warmest Regards,
