Do the iPad 3 Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi + Celullar model share the same parts?

I have a broken iPad 3 Wi-Fi (A1416) and it’s difficult to find another broken iPad 3 which I could use for spare parts.

I’ve found one now which i could get for 10$, but it’s the Wi-Fi + Celullar (A1430) model.

I only need the flex cable that connects the logic board with the camera and the power button.

Is this possible?

Hi @visiblepanda ,

Don’t know the answer but the ifixit iPad 3 WiFi and 4G cable parts list shows the same Volume and Power button flex cable is used by both devices.

I realize that you said camera and power button cable but that cable is not shown in the list.
