How to download videos on iPhone from Safari

Often, for example, when you’re standing in line for a plane or going somewhere far away, but you don’t have an Internet connection? And you want to shorten your time and there is nothing better than watching a video or a movie.

Fortunately, there are many ways to download videos to your iPhone and enjoy your favorite movie or series while there is no Internet. In this article, I will tell you how to do it correctly and which applications can help you do it.

Is it possible to download videos to your iPhone

Every time you upload a video from any resource, it’s important to keep in mind the copyright and that it’s not completely ethical. If you upload videos to those sites as a form of a backup, then downloading your own personal videos wouldn’t violate any copyright laws. However, if you were to download someone else’s video, that’s where you get into more of a gray area. Also, keep in mind that when you sell other people’s content, you’re violating copyright laws and that this can have consequences.

Where are located the downloaded videos on iPhone or iPad

If you use (most of the time) Safari to download videos and other files, they will be stored by default in the Files app, either stored directly on your device or in a Downloads folder in your iCloud Drive.

In case if you prefer another cloud service, such as Dropbox or Google Drive, you can set those to be your download locations. To set them as your default download locations, follow the instructions:

  • Go to Settings app > Safari > Downloads
  • Select the location you want from the list

How to save videos on iPhone from other websites on Internet

In general, using Safari and the Files app is enough to save videos, but some sites such as Facebook and YouTube may not give you access to this option. In that case, you have to use third-party applications or sites such as SaveFrom.net. This site will create a link to let you download videos in Safari.

Another way is simply to record a video of your screen. However, remember that in this case, the quality of your video will not be very good.
