You may try few things to get this issue resolved.
1. Please check the Read & Write permissions for all the Lightroom folder in both user and system library, it should be set to full access.
2. Same goes with iPhone folders.
3. Turn off the GPU from the Lightroom preferences.
Open Lightroom > Preferences > Performance tab > Uncheck the GPU > Restart Lightroom.
I searched for all folders in ~/Library and /Library containing "lightroom" or "iphone". All where read/write enabled.
Turned off GPU and restartet LR.
Started import 12:10. Now, more than 15 min later no progress.
And I can’t end LR correctly. If I say "quit" it asks me, if I want to end import. If I say "yes", LR gets unresponsive and I have to kill the task.
I'm having the exact same issue. Same configuration, except iPhone 7 and Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6.
My phone has thousands of pictures on it, but even trying to import only two pictures stalls.
I deleted all photos from my iPhone (something I never wanted to do; my goal would be to keep as many photos on the phone as possible memorywise) and now import seems to work fine (tried it only a few times). Before that, I had only about 3k pics on the phone. I will keep watching this,
I"m having the same problem, LR 2015.10.1, iPhone 6, rMBP 2012, Sierra 10.12.4. I have lots (9500) pics on my phone, and don't want to get rid of them, so deleting them isn't an option.
Trying to import the last 60 pics. I've left it running for about 2.5 hrs and still not done.
Not sure if this plays any part in it, but I noticed my filenames have rolled over since I've taken more than 10K photos since i've started with my iPhone3G way back when.
Same issue there. Lightroom CC 2015 with iPhone 7 plus iOS 11. It happened twice, and I noticed that both times I had a very long video file (unwanted mistake recording for 10 minutes or more). It took me a very long time to realize it, as you don't even know that you have such a file in your phone since it is recorded by accident. I dont' know if that is the real reason, but as soon as lightroom met those files, the process became veeeeeeeeeeery long and finally freeze. Even deleting the file on the phone, restarting computer and the phone changed nothing at all. It's as if there was no photos on my phone... The only way that worked for me was to make the upgrade of last iOS 11. Now I'm back to normal situation.
