Netflix has launched Smart Downloads for iOS – a seamless way for you to download titles on the Netflix app. The feature was first made available for Android users in July 2018. It makes it easier for members to watch the stories they love, including on the go. Once you’ve finished watching a downloaded episode, Netflix downloads the next one and automatically deletes the one you just watched. Members need to be connected to Wi-Fi to download shows — and they can opt-out entirely if they choose.
“The faster our members can get to the next episode of their favourite stories, the better. Now, fans on the Netflix iOS app can get in on the fun and convenience of Smart Downloads, spending less time managing their downloads and more time watching. The feature is one more way we’re making it easier for Netflix fans to take the stories they love wherever they go.” – Netflix Spokesperson
