    I can't import any photos because the app doesn't seem to recognize my phone. I plug it in and when I click on the Import button, both the Import Selected and Import All buttons are greyed out.

    iTunes recognizes the phone just fine. Anyone run into this before, or have a solution? Thanks.

    Replying to my own post because I found a solution on the Apple Support community from this thread:

    I experience the same problem with an iPad and iPhone, both running latest iOS9. Apple support found me a solution:

    - With device disconnected from Mac, go to Settings > General > Reset > Reset Location & Privacy

    - Then reconnect to Mac and tap Trust

    After this, photos & videos all appeared as expected in Photos and Image Capture.

    I just tried this and it worked for me, in case anyone else is dealing with this. Per that thread it seems to be a glitch in the system and Apple is aware of it.
