I'm using Lightroom Mobile (4.3.2) on an iPadPro-2018. I want to import images from an SD card into LR.
Here's my import process:
-Attach card reader to UBS-C port, insert SD card
-Open and browser to the SD Card
-Select the photos you want to import into LR
-Select "Share" in the lower left corner of the

At this point, I should be able to select Lightroom. However, the LR option ONLY appears if the number of files is 10 or fewer. More than 10 files and the Lightroom icon does not appear. With this process, no more than 10 images can be imported into LR at a time.

Has anyone experienced this issue? Has anyone found a workaround? And yes, I have reported this to Apple.

Thanks for your feedback.

Apple announced that its new iPadOS will let apps like Lightroom import photos directly. Hoping a new Lightroom version with this capability will be released with final iOS 13 release, in a few days.
