    I think that fits over the edge of the central metal sheet of the frame assembly to protect the display ribbon cables from chafing. I think you can just see it here, in a photo from ifixit.com

    I do not see anything like it from the image of the results of the ifixit teardown, you may want to ask on their site though.

    Looking through their images on the site, I can't see it either but, when I took an iPhone apart to replace the screen, I'm fairly sure that's where it was.
