Can I use a USB to Lightning adapter to plug the Apple Keyboard with Numeric Key Pad into a Lightning port on the back of my 2015 iMac/27 inch screen?

I have a new 2015 iMac. I just ordered the Apple keyboard with numeric key pad, as the wireless keyboard that came with the computer is limited for my needs. I am out of USB ports on the back of the computer but I do have two open Lightning ports available. Can I use a USB to Lightning adapter to plug the keyboard into one of my available Lightning ports?

  • I meant to say that I have two Thunderbolt ports on the back of my iMac. Is there an adapter that will let me use Apple's USB2 Keyboard with numeric key pad and one of my available Thunderbolt ports?
