Its the wifi version. I did find the part on Amazon, expect to get it in a day or two and will install and test out my repair.

I have this problem as well, but mine is the LTE model. Do I still need to get the GPS Antenna Flex? Or is the right antenna a different part on the LTE model?

Is you model the LTE or WiFi?

What is the extent of the damage? Have you completely severed the cable? Post pictures if you can.

As to whither or not it will still function, it might, the iPad has two combi WiFi/Bluetooth antenna, but it might not have the range it had.
