As I have 'donkey slow' upload speeds here in rural Ireland, I would like to be able to access my photos directly from LRCC mobile (iPhone) to my lap top (Lightroom Classic) When I currently click import I see my iphone in the import module but thats responds to 'apple photos'. How can Import manually from LRCC mobile thus bypassing the donkey?

Your only option would be to save the photos to the Camera Roll, and then physically connect the phone to the computer. That will save a derivative file (with edits) however, not the original.

It has -unfortunately- been resquested a thousand times, but they will never implement this as this would allow you not to use their “cloud” and thus maybe skip the 1To data plan.
They want you to upload your pictures and sync over the net, no matter how bad or expensive your connection might be...

No worries. I didn’t do much excepted pointing out the lack of solution for slow connections or big libraries
