Where is Wifi antenna in new iPad (3rd generation, Wifi-only)?

Can anybody confirm the exact location of the Wifi antenna in the new third generation iPad (2012)? In the iPad 2, I think it ran from just behind the home button to the left side of the device (when holding it vertical with the home button at the bottom)? I read on another forum that it is behind the speaker (on the right side), which may be incorrect. It is a fairly simple question, but I can't tell just by looking at the photos on TR and fixit.

Is this a good question?

Hi there. The Wi-Fi antenna is located on top of the speaker assembly (to the right of the home button when held vertically). It connects to the socket located on the bottom left portion of the logic board (again held vertically). Hope this helps.

Yes it does help, and thanks for the easy-to-understand photo!

BTW, does this mean that the position of the Wifi antenna in the iPad 3 (as seen in your photo) is the same as in the iPad 2?
