Netflix brings 'Smart Download' feature for iOS users

Netflix finally brings its smart downloads feature to iOS devices

After arriving on Android last summer, Netflix Smart Downloads have arrived for iOS. This apparently enables the app to automatically download episodes of a TV series via Wi-Fi and stack them ready for consumers to watch and once it is viewed, the latter gets deleted and new episodes get downloaded. The app will delete any episodes you have watched before downloading the next.

Netflix originally introduced the smart downloads feature for Android devices in July 2018 and said that the feature would arrive on the iOS app sometime later in 2018.

When you've done that, basically head over to the "downloads" area of the application and you'll find the "smart downloads" switch at the exceptionally top. That way if you need to watch the second episode again before getting caught up with the latest in your list, you can do that.

Aston's Lagonda concept to pave way for radical crossover
Though this incarnation of Lagonda is an all-new company, the brand itself has an extensive heritage. The new SUV follows the reveal of the Lagonda Vision sedan concept shown at Geneva previous year .

Scroll down and select App Settings. The feature does not work on cellular data, only via Wi-Fi, which will prevent the users from accidentally using a large chunk of their data. Once it's updated, open the app and go to My Downloads section. They will also have the ability to opt-out of this feature if they choose, the company said. From today, Netflix Subscribers who use iOS can download Netflix episodes to their phone in much the same way podcasts work.

Netflix says the feature is available on its Windows 10 app as well, though we aren't sure when exactly that launched. In a statement to The Los Angeles Times, the company confirmed it was testing the feature.

"The faster our members can get to the next episode of their favourite stories, the better".
