The straight one is for cellular diversity. Faulty one impacts cellular reception and download speed.

The one with 2 turns is GPS interconnect. Without this the navigation will not work

These two do not have anything to do with wifi at all

* The straight cable is related to cell signal strength. [Such as No SIM/No Service]

  • The angled cable is related to GPS signal strength. [For Map]'''

I broke straight cable's head when I tried to push it up. But after all wifi signal is working as well as cellular signal. At first, iPhone shuts down every minute. Then I decided to shut it off for few minutes and try back on. As I do, it works fine. I don't know what the problem is. There must be something else.

That's just for cellular diversity, you lose some reception and cellular download speed, that's all.
