I honestly don't know off hand. Guessing you're talking about the rear camera. If you have the parts on hand, I would say try it. The cables may look similar, but they may have different connector sockets. So it's very likely it won't work, but I don't for certain off hand

I suppose, that, if it have different connector sockets it can damage mainboard or camera module. But maybe someone tried it, or know answer on this question. And i don't know anything will it work in iOS for iPhone 5, drivers can affect on it.

Rear camera connector is inverted, one model plugs under logic board and one above.

For front camera the earpiece connector part is different 2 connections vs 4.

Do not try it. I've seen ribbon cables and / or FPC connectors to the part get burnt / melted / damaged by doing so.

For example plugging a 5s charging port into a iPhone 5c. I ended up melting the charging cable at the plug lol.

Funnily enough the charging port still worked when I tried it on iPhone 5s.
