    Just wondering, can one use the USB power adapter that came with the iPhone 6 to be used on a iPhone 5S?

    Yes. In fact, you could even use the iPad's adaptor.

    Another question while were on the topic on this.

    Does anyone else experience issues removing the lighting cable from the USB Power Adaptor?
    Most of the time, I have to force it out.
    I read in most articles that this is by design.
    Here is even a video about it on how to force it off with a plastic tool.

    Most of the time, I just need to wiggle it with some force in order to remove it from the USB Power Adaptor.

    Is the adaptor that this occurs with from Apple? I have a genuine apple 2m lightning cable (with the deep retention holes like in the video) and it slides easily in and out of: an ipod charger that is what must be over 5 years old, an iphone 4S charger, a sony xperia charger and a samsung GS3 charger. These are all genuine chargers. No issues either with the 11" MBA I'm using right now.

    I don't really feel like going through usb spec sheets, but you'd think that the hole depth shouldn't matter, and that the receptacle spring clips are designed in such a way that they are unable to lock up the plug. Could be wrong about that though.
