IPAD Mini Identify the cable I broke, Please help see pictures

Block Image

I am looking for a confirmation on what cable I broke when opening Ipad Mini.

I broke a ribbon cable this is identified in the Rear Camera guide, Page 62, picture attached.

This cable goes over the rear camera and is removed during camera replacement.

I think it is to the Right Antenna and is this part repairable ?

Thanks for the response and information.

I will go ahead and replace as part is only 6.95 and I have the patient open on the operating table.

Primary antenna proximity sensor connector.

The sensor is only used by the device to tune down TX power when your hand is over the antenna to pass RF safety regulation. There will be no performance impact with this connector broken.
