I have brand new Mac Book Pro. I need to tether my Canon 5DMark IV to LR Classic. It will not read my camera. Adobe says it's Apple's issue, Apple says it's Adobe's issue. I have a brand new computer and all it can do is play music.

I just gave this tether function a test with my Nikon D500 and my new MBP Max max on Monterey. At first, I used the USB 3 cables that came with my Sony card readers along with a generic USB C - USB A little plug adapter and an Apple brand dongle type adapter. The camera would not connect. 

Then, I managed to find my orange Tether Tools USB 3 cable that has worked fine with my previous (2) MBPs. Once I hooked the camera up to the MBP Max with that Tether Tools cable all tether functions worked fine, including the Live View with focus function. 

Also, I have found the inexpensive little USB C - USB A adapters frequently do not work as well as the Apple branded dongles.
