The above answer is egregiously false. USB 3 cables and USB 2 cables are not the same. USB 3 used nine electrical connections instead of four. In order to use USB 3 speeds, the cable *and* the device on each end need to support it. If that's not the case, most devices will operate at USB 2 speeds.
None, Apple included makes any Lightning cable which support USB 3. To the best of my knowledge Apple has never manufactured any peripheral using USB 3, as until the new USB Type-C Macbook, they favored Thunderbolt for high-speed connections.
