    If you remove the front-facing camera at this point (and replace it with a new one when you re-assemble), you will also almost certainly have removed the ambient light sensor (which allows automatic adjustment of the screen’s brightness according to ambient light. The sensor is the module attached above the camera, and has its own tiny hole in the iPad’s glass, just above the one for the camera’s lens.

    The module appears to be removable from the camera, but this author’s attempts were unsuccessful. It is held on securely by adhesive, and given the small cost of replacing the camera itself (which is virtually always sold with this module attached) it seems more expedient to just remove and replace the whole camera/module assembly. I have confirmed that doing so restores ambient light sensor function to an iPad 4 (WiFi) that lacked it. I haven’t tested this on an iPad 3, but since the module appears identical, I surmise that its function is the same.
