I want the images that i took to be saved by the date and time taken.Whenever i edit pictures on lightroom mobile and try to save them in my camera roll the edited images get saved randomly in the lightroom album.I want the photos to be saved by the date and time captured. However , in the lightroom album we can organise the images by touch and scroll but thats too much of a hassle. I tried sorting the images by capture date in the lightroom app and then saving it but it didnt work. Is their any workaround for this?

I'm afraid that this problem is caused by the way that Apple Photos sorts images. It sorts them by the creation date/time of the new file, rather than the capture date of the image, if I'm not mistaken. There is nothing Adobe can do about that.

Adobe could use the created date from the exif and use it as file creation date. But not sure about the rights a program needs to do this. On Android I can edit file creation dates with a file manager. So it's possible.
