P: iPhone import limit number items

When importing photos from an iPhone in Lightroom Classic, it would be valuable to limit the number of items shown on the import page to prevent freezing and to ensure thumbnails can be shown.

 

I have been using an iPhone for 10+ years and have 100,000+ photos on my iPhone. When trying to import photos from the iPhone, (on a MacBook Pro M2 Max with 32 Gb RAM) Lightroom cannot properly handle this number of photos. Limiting the number of photos, for example by paging, or by filtering on date, would likely solve this problem.

I have over 100,000 image files on my iPhone (when you count live photos as two image files), and have not had any problems with that volume of files.  The most I've imported at one time is probably between 5000 and 10000.  I have had some problems with imports not actually executing after clicking the import button (resolved by rebooting both my iPhone and my M1 laptop), but I have the same problem with importing to Apple Photos, so its not a LR issue.
