When I take a picture, it Takes minutes before I can see it in the app. Especially, when the Connection is slow.

Aren’t those HDR? They require some computing before being displayed?

Yes, they are HDR. But the HDR which I take with the standard foto app are immediately visible in the galery (or how the foto-app is called in iOS).  I just tested: pictures taken in "Auto" are iondeed faster. Thanks for the hint.
So its a bug in the Lightroom app or at least a poorly implemented algorithm, I suppose?

I suppose iOS uses a different algorithm than Adobe. iOS uses computational photography which I don’t think LR uses (would be a good suggestion, though!). iOS saves a jpeg (HEIF, actually) whereas LR is able to generate a raw file. iOS probably uses lower level code or even dedicated hardware for processing. So many reasons for it to have different speeds and results. A bug or a poor implementation is of course always possible ;-)
