Lightroom Mobile (iOS) Unable to export images to Camera Roll when chosen DNG as file format

After I've imported a .dng file onto Lightroom, edited this file and try export this file to - again - .dng format to my camera roll, the image turns up gray in my camera roll.
In other words: there is no image in my camera roll.

I think the camera roll (i.e. Apple Photos) does not support DNG. That is why the image does not show a thumbnail. It is there, but Photos cannot read it.

P.S. You must also realise that exporting as DNG is like exporting the original. Your edits will not be applied, even if an app can read the DNG. That make it rather useless to do this if the imported file was already a DNG.
