Lightroom mobile: Raw rendering leaves no tag or profile in exported jpeg

I had no problem importing raw files on my iPad into LR Mobile and performing edits.  However, when I export into a jpeg and email the resulting file to my home system, the file when opened into Photoshop has no embedded profile or exif tag, it appears to Photoshop as an untagged image.  Adobe should include an embedded profile, or at least an exif tag, as to what colorspace the raw image was rendered.

Can you describe how you are performing the "Exporting into a JPEG" step?

I bring a raw file into LR Mobile, edit it, and then press on the upper right share symbol.  From the dropdown menu I choose Share.  I then select an image size (I've tried Small and Maximum, does not make any difference), and then press the Mail icon.  This takes me into iPad Mail new message, with the image attached, a Subject line "Shared from Lightroom Mobile".  I fill out the To field with my email address, and then press Send, all works normally, and I am returned to LR Mobile.

I then go to my home system (Win 10) and download my email, drag the image onto the desktop, and open with Photoshop.  No profile and no exif tag, Photoshop pops up the message stating such.  I check fileinfo, and there is no exif entry for profile.

Thanks for the added info. It looks like this is fixed in the upcoming build for Lightroom for mobile (iOS) No eta yet...

Thank you, I look forward to the next release.  In the meantime, is the raw image rendered into sRGB, so that I know the proper profile to assign in Photoshop?
