This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom Classic: Sync from iPhone sets inconsistent capture date, incorrect sorting

Since Lightroom Classic CC came out I‘m no longer able to let LR sort my images by capture date and time. As I often first import the pics of my main camera and later the iPhone pics that were shot in the same period of time they are no longer in the correct order when sorted by creation date/time. Is this a known bug?

Not a bug and it works fine "IF" you have the Date and Time set correctly on the camera.
Your phone will always update the time to whatever time zone you are in. The camera will not.

Afraid I have to disagree with Just Shot Me.  There are definitely some bugs & inconsistencies with Lr's date/time handling.

This post is probably what you're running into - https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/lightroom-classic-sync-from-iphone-lr-sets-inconsistent-capture-date-incorrect-sorting

It's a pain to remember, but the easy workaround is to select your images and click Metadata --> Edit Capture Time --> Change All.
