iphone again

now that I upgraded to 15.4 I can’t import pics from my iphone. Gwenview does nothing.Using KDE desktop

There are two I use
Ifuse and KDE Connect. Have you tried those?
You can install the KDE Connect for iphone.
Edit: or you might need this package
| gdk-pixbuf-loader-libheif - GDK PixBuf Loader for libheif

try digikam… it is built for managing photos. gwenview is just a picture viewer.
