    I opened up my iPad Pro to replace my smashed screen/LCD and accidentally scraped the antenna beside the camera (see pic). Does anyone know what this antenna is?

    I’m thinking it’s the wifi/Bluetooth antenna, but when I check online shops, they don’t seem to match up with that particular antenna/cord. [​IMG]

    The ifixit.com site shows a tear down of the 9.7” iPad Pro, but does not make note of the antennas (though they are shown). Their parts supply doesn’t show one either. However, they do have a place to ask questions. If you don’t get an answer here, you could give them a try.

    Thanks, I'll ask on ifixit. I'm thinking it's the cellular antenna, which I don't need... However, if it's the bluetooth antenna, I definitely need that.

    It's strange that the antenna is not in ifixit's parts supply. Thinking it might not be a vital piece of hardware?

    No idea. Might just be really hard to get outside of Apple’s supply chain. Or rarely requested.

    Please let us know what happens.
