Combining iPad 3 & 4: need advice

Hi, everyone!

I have an iPad 3 that works just fine but has begged me for retirement :)

I also have an iPad 4 with broken glass that has stopped working properly (at least it can't charge but in other cases has shown no faults so I suppose its logic board is ok and it might need just a connector unit or maybe battery replacement).

So I found that I can simply replace the screen from 3rd to 4th.

And the questions are

- what should I check to locate the flaw that prevents iPad 4 being charged?

- can I replace the battery from 3rd to 4th if it's the problem?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

The iPad 3 & 4 share the same battery...see here. If you want to confirm if the battery is causing the charging issues, you could try to run a utility such as coconutBattery (Mac) or 3uTools (Windows). These utilities will check the battery and report it's design capacity. Anything below 70 is ripe for replacement and anything lower than 60% will definitely need to be replaced.

IF the battery is not the issue, check with different cables and charging bricks. Apple original or high quality MFi accessories are strongly recommended. If none of this solves the problem, then you may have a damaged charge port in the device or a logic board issue
