HEIC files, such as those produced by iPhones, are supported in Lightroom Classic CC 8.0 for Windows, however Auto-import ignores *.heic files in the watched directory. The files import correctly if I import them manually.

The addition of HEIC appears to have been a bit half-baked.

Your problem isn't exactly the same, but all the import/synchronize/watched folder issues are most likely related - https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/synchronize-folder-doesnt-recognize-heic-file...
