Mike Kahn converted one iPhotos library to Photos in OS X. Now, every time he plugs in his iPhone, Photos launches, requiring him to quit and then launch iPhoto. He’d like to revert to iPhoto being the default choice.

Apple likes to hide its browser, mail, and iOS-attached launch preferences in funny places.
