I can not import HEVC and HEIF files from my iPhone X.
When will I be able to do it?

I've imported my Phone X photos into Lightroom CC (I don't Classic) and they import without incident although they do convert from HEIC (the HEIF standard) to JPEG. I also noticed that when I export a photo saved in HEIC in Photos the impact is converted to JPEG or you have the option of TIFF or PNG but not HEIC. I've done on iPhone, iPad and Mac. I don't know if Lightroom just doesn't support HEIC yet or if Apple is assuming a lack of support for the HEIF standard at this time and so only stores the images in that format and during export converts to more compatible JPEG.

yes, the problem is that converting video files is very slow and imports become a problem
