  • 25 June 2024 It's Lightroom update time again! See What’s New in Lightroom Classic 13.4, Mobile & Desktop (June 2024)? for the bug fixes and new lens profiles. Warning... this is a minor dot release and does NOT fix some of the bugs introduced in 13.3, so if you reverted to 13.2 due to bugs (e.g. sync issues), we'd suggest you stay there for now.

Lr Mobile starts a Full Camera Roll Upload after iPhone Upgrade

I've just upgraded to iPhone 7s from backup. Looking forward to using the 256GB to cache more photos locally! However, Lr Mobile started uploading the whole camera roll. I hope it will not lead to duplicates, but even having to wait for it to do a complete sync is a while. Do you guys see the same behavior? Any way to prevent it from happening every time the phone is upgraded?

It sounds like you have iCloud set to sync your camera roll to all photos, which is why they appeared on the new phone, right? I would consider turning that off for future upgrades, since Lightroom can also make all of the photos available on all of your devices, and you don't really need them duplicated.
