Netflix brings smart downloads to iOS users

Apple iPhone iPad users watching a series offline on Netflix can now save data

Netflix has announced the arrival of its Smart Downloads feature for iOS, enabling customers with an iPhone or iPad will enjoy the same intelligent download management feature as Android and Windows 10 users.

Android first received this feature back in 2018.

With the smart downloads feature exchanged on, the Netflix app will hold up until your gadget is connected with a Wi-Fi network before deleting watched scenes and downloading the following accessible one.

In order to access this new feature, you will need to first get your hands on the latest version of Netflix for iOS. For example, suppose you have already downloaded the first three episodes.

Users also have the option to manually enable and disable Netflix's Smart Downloads for iOS.

Smart Downloads will be turned on by default. Obviously, if you happen to download each scene of a series on the double, the application won't delete or supplant any of them once viewed.


Netflix claims that it wants users to spend less time managing their downloads and spend more time actually consuming content, something the Smart Downloads feature will help them accomplish.

Scroll down and select App Settings.

"While many members enjoy watching Netflix at home, we've often heard they also want to continue their Stranger Things binge while on airplanes and other places where the Internet is expensive or limited".

Under the Downloads heading, use the toggle to turn Smart Downloads on or off. Late a year ago, the streaming firm started testing a mobile-only subscription which will apparently be more affordable.

You should have the new feature on your Netflix app now if you have your device set for automatic updates, otherwise you can find the update in the Apple App Store now. Some subscribers noticed a pop-up that asked them if they wish to "watch this scene again".
