The iPhone 5 includes on its bottom side a lightning port, thanks to which you are able to charge your device, as well as connect it to your PC and use various accessories.
What exactly is the Lightning port on the iPhone 5;
The Lightning interface is specifically designed by Apple for the 5th iPhone generation and the respective apple range of devices, in order to replace the old 30-pin dock interface, providing a unified charging and data transmission interface.
The big advantage is its size, since it includes only 8 pins instead of 30, the top quality of materials which allow high transfer rates and make it more resilient, and last but not least the ability to interface with any side facing up or down. Thus, the compact, small connector snaps just right every time on your iPhone 5, and saves experimentation and accidents!
