The iPhone app has spit tone but for some reason the desktop app doesn't (on the new cc version) Lightroom classic has it so lets bring it to cc. I love using split tone but it needs to be more powerful. For example mid tones added and add it to lightroom cc. Right now i have to switch to my iPhone to do my split tone adjustments.

Develop Feature Parity across the Lightroom Ecosystem is the end game.  Mobile Apps, Web and the Desktop client will all, eventually, have equivalent Develop stacks.  It will take a little time. 

Your patience is appreciated.

Split tone is one of the best features in lightroom it just needs mid tone adjustment and put on to the desktop app. This is stuff i thought adobe may have thought about prior to releasing it. Instead what they released was a half thought product and turned happy customers into rather frustrated ones.

Did you know that Lightroom Classic CC was on version 2 before even local adjustment tools were added? Watermarking wasn't added till version 3? Many features you take for granted didn't come until years after Lightroom 1.x. No software is complete out of the gate.  If it was, that means it would never be released. 

I agree it is hard when a favorite feature is missing from new software. It is even more frustrating when you know it will never be there. Here, that isn't the case, Split-Toning tools will come.

Lightroom CC understands how to correctly render your files containing Split-Toning and should soon have UI to allow you to add and edit this.  Again, all things require time.
