The ZIF connector next to the camera is actually the proximity sensor connector. The top right antenna assembly is the primary TX/RX antenna for cellular services(connecting to the top right coax connector) and doubles as a proximity sensor(the ZIF connector next to the main camera). The top left antenna(coax connector under the front camera) is for cellular diversity RX and GPS.

The prox sensor is not used for any user activity, it's just for RF compliance. Leaving it damaged does affect you using it in any way. The parts for cellular iPads are hard to source so I would say just leave it there.

sashen141 since your iPad is a A1490 it is not a LTE. It is a mini 2 WiFi&cellular. Here is the part and you can find the guides for the repair on here

@oldturkey03 - Thanks, I missed the fact that sashen had selected the wrong machine icon.

I thought they are the same. iPad mini 2 only has one cellular variant, working on all cellular technologies.

There is a "A1491" variant but that's only sold in China, adding TD-LTE but cuts CDMA.

A1489 on the iPad mini 2 Wi-Fi

A1490 on the iPad mini 2 Wi-Fi + Cellular

A1491 on the iPad mini 2 Wi-Fi + Cellular (TD-LTE)–released early 2014

The "wifi + cellular" is the "wifi + LTE" model, Apple changed the name only because when iPad 3 was released with "LTE" in the model name, an Australian customer sued Apple because the device did not support Australian LTE bands but Apple still calls them "LTE". Apple then changed the names to avoid confusion.
