Lightroom Mobile (iPad): How to apply captions and keywords to multiple photos?

I am trying to edit some assignments in Lightroom mobile on an iPad. I don’t see a way to apply metadata info like captions to multiple images at once. I can copy and paste one by one , but that’s too time consuming. I see the option on my android phone. The iPad version of Lightroom seems more confusing than the android. I am trying to figure out if I can realistically leave the MacBook behind for editing on location. But the mobile iPad Lightroom seems a bit cumbersome.Stefano

Stefano, you are right, this function is not (yet) available in iOS. I would like to have it as well. Will vote for it.

Note that keywords added in Lightroom Mobile (Android and iOS) won't sync to Lightroom Classic - only to the cloud-based Lightroom desktop app. Titles and captions will sync to Classic.

Yes Laura, that was one of the reasons I have switched to LR Cloud and given up LR Classic. Adobe is improving LR Cloudy :-) step by step.

I am pretty puzzled as the Lightroom on my Google Pixel 3a allows pasting descriptions and titles to multiple photos at once. It would suffice. It seems also more intuitive in the way it’s laid out and structured.

Yet providing captions in the description field is a basic necessity for every photographer who has to submit images to publications and agencies.

I don’t need to also enter keywords as the caption already includes terms I can search. Long descriptive captions in many case make keywords redundant.
Yet any photo editor expect to receive captioned images from the photographer she/he assigned.
Any way to push the issue to adobe? Why on android not on iPad os?

Mobile features are often developed and introduced on one of the two  and then soon after released on the other - so while I have no inside info on this specifically, I think it's pretty safe to assume it will be coming to iOS.

Any updates? I don’t see the option to add captions to multiple photos at once. It is a fundamental, basic function
