None at present!
Operating System
iOS, Android
I'm contemplating getting rid of my windows laptop and MacMini. I would be left with just a phone and tablet (android, iOS or both). If I was to take out a Lightroom CC subscription .... ? My photos would be uploaded direct from my phone, and from camera via tablet. I cant see it mentioned anywhere that a desktop/laptop is also needed ... am I missing anything? Thanks.

True Lightroom Classic is not required. However there’s a lot of functionality in Lightroom Classic that is not found in LightroomCC If you’re willing to live with those limitations, then yes you could manage images in the cloud with only an iPhone and tablet.

Thank you ... is there an up-to-date list of features across the two versions? I have found old lists, and wondered what the current standing is?

This is probably the best for comparing: Lightroom CC vs. Lightroom Classic – Which Do I Need? Although new features have been added to both since this blog article.
Great list - CC it is then! I didnt use any of the extra classic features when I last had LR. This will make you chuckle ... I went on to Adobe Sales live chat earlier ... told them I only had tablet/smartphone ... they suggested Classic! I said I wanted lots of cloud storage ... they suggested Classic! D'OH! :) :)
