Help to identify small rubber part on iPhone 5s


I am just re-assembling an iPhone 5s after replacing screen, and I appear to have what looks like a small rubber mount that has got separated from one of the main parts.

Just wondering if anyone might be able to identify what it is and where belongs.

Many thanks,

That looks like a rubber piece from the camera assembly. The piece is probably already included on the screen you have put in

Yep. Used for the ambient light sensor auto brightness. It should be put back on or you may notice that the auto brightness is too sensitive in the dark.
