Netflix finally adds smart download feature to iOS apps

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

To activate Smart Downloads, download the latest version of the Netflix app for iOS. The Smart Downloads feature Netflix first introduced on Android last summer is now available on Apple's mobile platform as well, the video streaming service announced Thursday.

Smart Downloads builds upon this feature, taking over the management aspect so that users will always have offline access to the latest episodes of their favorite shows.

In addition to that, the users don't have to worry about storage either: as soon as they finish watching an episode, it will delete the previous ones they've already watched.

However, that task will now be automated thanks to the arrival of Smart Downloads on iOS. If you download and watch a movie, it's sequel won't automatically load on your tablet or phone.

This new feature will work for users even when they are watching multiple shows on their mobile devices at a single time.

There are two ways to enable this feature: Go to My Download page and enable Smart Downloads or head over to the App Settings page and enable it there.

From the top of the My Downloads section, select Smart Downloads. If you'd rather keep watched episodes on your device and manually manage your downloaded content, visit the Downloads tab in the Netflix app and toggle Smart Downloads off. "The feature is one more way we're making it easier for Netflix fans to take the stories they love wherever they go", said Netflix. Then under the "Downloads" heading, use the toggle to turn Smart Downloads on or off. The download management feature is aimed at reducing the hassle while managing content downloads, as it automatically queues up a new episode for offline viewing when users are finished watching an older one in the series. Some subscribers noticed a pop-up that asked them if they wish to "watch this scene again".
