Hey there, Philip.

Sorry you're having issues. Can you list the steps that are causing the problem?

I do the same and haven’t noticed any difference since before the big update. I know there are more options than before, but i dont have anything working differently to how it was before. Load or take images on iPhone/ipad. Import in to LR CC on ipad/iPhone, and after a while the raw files appear in Classic on my Windows PC.

You don't need the new lightweight for that. Just sync your Lightroom Classic catalog and add your iPhone photos to Lightroom Mobile (or use the camera in LrM). Your photos will download to Lightroom Classic just as they did to Lightroom CC2015.

When I start the sync process in classic, it wants me to sign in.  form there I just chase my tail. It doesn't seem to matter how many times I sign in, I can't past that step in classic.
And I wouldn't mind if I never saw the "new" thing again!

OK!  I got it past that step.  This computer required an update.  Now I would like to selectively synch.  I have 2 years of photos on my iphone and I only want the ones that I have taken recently. (I work from two locations.)

In Lightroom mobile on your iPhone, then click the add from camera roll button:

Then swipe to select which images you add and sync back to Lightroom Classic.
