Can the USB-C to Lightning cable with an Apple 29W, 30W, 61W, or 87W USB-C Power Adapter be used for charging of an iPhone 5/5S?

I understand it will NOT be fast charging as the phone is an older model iPhone5/5S, however, I want to make sure it will not damage my phone.

  • Yes, but it won't support fast charge.

  • You can use this cable to charge any device with a Lightning connector, so yes. The fast charging feature (enabled by USB-C) is only available for 2017 and newer devices though, which is the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X or future devices. It also works for the 2017 or later iPad Pros.

    As for safety, Apple-certified Lightning cables (so obviously first-party cables like this one) have a chip in the Lightning end that works to ensure your device doesn't get damaged or become a safety hazard; safety issues with charging cables occur when you use a third-party cable that is not MFi (Made For iPhone) certified, or when your cable is frayed or otherwise compromised. This cable will work fine for the iPhone 5 and newer, provided you have something to plug the USB-C end into.

  • Yes this will work, although as you said it will not provide fast charging. It will charge as normal.
