Inexpeirenced Person looking for advice on how to combine circuit boards to provide power through a lightning adapter instead of USB

I am looking to deconstruct a circuit board which uses a USB to provide power and instead pair it with a lightning charger used in iPhones. Can anyone point me in the right direction or connect me with someone who might be able to. I know this is broad, but any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I would be inclined to just purchase something like this....

    If I were going to make something I'd look at this site

    It implies that you can get the 5V  by tapping into pins 1 and 5 but the data connections are more complex. Actually, after reading the explanation of how lightning works, I'm much more inclined to buy something that does the job.
