Can anyone identify this little part from the iPhone?

can anyone identify this little metal piece from the iphone 5s?

It fell off while i was cleaning my logic board with isopropyl alcohol. (my phone had water damage)

By the way, My phone is not turning on nor charging and i am not sure if this little guy is causing that problem or not...

for anyone who is able to identify this piece, do you think that this has to do with my iphone not turning on/charging?

i probably screwed up somewhere along the way but thought it might be worth a shot to ask. Thanks!

It looks to me like a a piece from the headphone jack. If it is then it shouldn't effect your charging or really much of anything. At any rate it doesn't look like an electronic chip or anything of vital significance. As for your battery check and make sure it is plugged in, 83% of the problems I had when repairing my phone were ribbon related. Otherwise, there may be something damaged on you logic board or battery circuit. Ot's hard to tell. Hope this helps, best of luck repaoring your phone.

That has nothing to do with the charging port. I can't remember exactly where it goes but it's screwed in through the top. Don't worry it won't affect the phone whatsoever

It fits in to the left of the power button bracket under a black screw hole. If you use a magnifying glass you can see a space in between the screw hole and below it where it will fit. The longest flat edge with two dots faces the top and the other edge faces the right.
