Netflix brings 'Smart Download' feature for iOS users

Adjust Comment Print

Netflix's goal is to take the hassle out of updating shows stored on your mobile device.

That offline download list has grown in time and, after rolling out the feature for Android in the summer of 2018, Netflix now has made it available for iOS as well. However, the app only works when your device is connected to a Wi-Fi network, so be sure to get all of your downloads finished before heading out.

Smart Downloads automatically downloads the next episode for a show you are watching once you finish the current episode. And Netflix subscribers who don't want to use Smart Downloads can disable the feature. For example, suppose you have already downloaded the first three episodes.

While you don't need the internet to watch downloaded titles, you do need to be signed into your account.
