It does affect that function for the iPad Mini if you use a "cheap" part.

It does not for the iPad Air unless you damage something during the repair.

However, make sure the bottom part of the digitizer is properly isolated with kapton tape (you can tell how it should be done by looking at the original digitizer once removed, to see how it is done).
