Re: What happened with my iPad 4th gen ,, pls help :(

I have this sort of thing happen with my iPhone 5. It's 21 months old and I'm a heavy user timewise. I think it's a waning battery issue. As it gets old and worn, it starts having these odd symptoms. I can be at 26% and my Wife calls me via FaceTime and after 10 seconds it goes black with the spinning wheel. When I plug it in, it's back up to 25% or so. How old is your iPad? Have you used it a lot? Maybe it needs a new battery. My phone does.
