Regardless of the content type (Movie or photo) or source of capture (DSLR, iPhone or imports) iPhone photo app stopped getting updated with latest iPhoto library. All files extensions are compatible with iOS 8. I did turn off/on photo syncing from iTunes without success.

Here is a screenshot of iPhoto Library folder content.

I noticed there are two folders named library.iPhoto and library6.iPhoto.

Could it be the reason?

I checked on the library.*iPhoto files and am not seeing that these cause issues, it just means that you have an older library format. The files are important as this is where iPhoto stores your photo libraries. I'd hold off messing with those for now.  I did run across folks trying to disable the sync between iPhoto and iPhones. They said it's under Image Capture, maybe you disabled it at some point by mistake?

deleting SyncServices helped one person

RESETTING Sync Services is an option - backup before doing so, is critical

SNIP> OS X Mavericks 10.9.3 and Later
    In the Finder, choose Go > Utilities.
    Open Terminal.
    In the Terminal window, type or paste the following command on a single line:
    defaults delete com.apple.SyncServer SyncServicesResetWorldRunOnce
    Press Return.
    Quit Terminal after the operation has completed (when Terminal returns to the command prompt).
    Reboot the computer

I found out that the reason is because my iPhoto library larger than iPhone capacity.
