This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom: iPhone video Capture Time is shifted upon Import

Import from iPhone takes date from modified file and not from taken photo.
That seems to be on my system, because on an import I saw already imported photos from some time ago. I do not know why this happens, but maybe this is caused by the face recognition or some iPhone internal routines. nevertheless I checked one specific photo and windows 10 reports the correct capture date and the modified date that is shown as proposed folder in LR 6.10.

Lightroom shows the date 26.04.2017 on hovering the mouse over the picture during import.
Accessing the iPhone while Windows 10 file Explorer shows 29.03.2017 as 'Date created' and 26.04.2017 as 'Date modified'.
After import into Lightroom the file resides in the subfolder 2017-04-26 and shows the Capture date of 2017-03-29.
This happens only when the import is done directly from the iPhone. Copied from the phone and imported afterward from disk does not have this issue.

If that is the case it would mean that I get really problems with a new phone when it modifies the file (while a new face recognition starts). 

During the last year I use the phone more and more for photos and in fact it destroys my workflow. I get also duplicated files that Lightroom does not recognize. :-(
