I am currently importing my photos from iOS photos to Lightroom, I just found that, somehow iOS has some photos with the same filename, that makes that Lightroom only imports one of the 2 different pictures... This is makes the migration impossible has I don't know how many duplicate names I have under my library! Lightroom should use more info to mark a photo as duplicate, like size, timestamp, etc...

Marco,

How are you importing them? Automatic, by using the Auto-Add feature? Manual, by using the Add Photos and then selecting them one-by-one? Other?

Manually, adding all previous photos that I have on camera roll before I turned on the auto-import

Still waiting for a clarification

Lightroom CC creates a hash of the file to identify duplicates, so the duplicate detection should be more accurate than using just a file name. 

The Lightroom Classic CC world uses a combination of filename, size on disk and date rather than an internal hash like the LIghtroom CC ecosystem uses so that should not be at issue. 

We would need examples of both the file and the suspected duplicate to review in order to give you any additional information.

Tried to reproduce but couldn't with the photo I've previously found that was marked as duplicated and it wasn't, If I can reproduce it I'll send you an email!
