I do many of these same things with my iPhone images; however, I import my files into my Lightroom library. I generally just dump my iPhone images into my Lightroom library every so often. I use a dedicated folder simply labled ‘iPhone’ for each year, so that all of my photos from 2013 from iPhone are in a single folder.

As an added bonus, all of these images are geotagged, so I have another way to sort if needed.
