Lightroom Version
LR cc latest
Operating System
iOS
Recently I moved my 66,000 photos (amateur hobbyist that needs to clean up lots of old photos one day) from LR Classic desktop (very confusing these various LR names) to LRcc, using 1.5Tb of Adobe cloud storage (costs but saves me worrying about backups). I am now traveling and foolishly assumed that all of those desktop adjustments would be available on mobile, especially for iPad Pro. I have now been playing with LRcc mobile for a couple of weeks, and was disappointed not to find certain things on iPad Pro version (I may not have found them yet). Yesterday whilst sitting with a beer I thought I would try on my iPhone - I was surprised to see that there seem to be more adjustments on iPhone than on iPad!?? For example this morning I have been using the graduated filter on iPhone, which is great. Am I missing something? Should iPhone be the same as iPad? Will Adobe make it the same one day?

As far as I know (I don't have an iPad Pro), the edit tools should be the same. Certainly comparing my iPhone with my iPad, the linear gradient can be found in the same place, i.e. under the Selective tool icon.

Aha, thanks for that Jim - you gave me the impetus to search the screen again - now found (little circle on RHS, then hit “+” on LHS and there is the option for a grad!

Just pause for thought there, Chris. For example, imagine this scenario - you delete some photos in LRCC and then change your mind, or maybe do it by accident. What would you do next week when you realize your mistake?
