Watch If you want to download a YouTube video and watch it offline on your iPhone or iPad, youve come to the right place
Downloading a YouTube video to your iPad or iPhone is actually pretty easy once you know how, and essential if you want to watch clips offline. Plus, its incredibly annoying when something good gets removed from YouTube: at this point youll be glad you saved a copy.
There are several ways to download YouTube videos directly to your iOS device, generally using third-party apps to achieve this. It should be noted, however, that such apps often dont last long on the App Store; search for YouTube download to see the latest options, but check the reviews to make sure theyre legitimate.
In this tutorial were going to take a slightly different approach, using a more general file-management app called Documents (which is on its sixth version, and is unlikely to be removed from the store any time soon) and using an online service to do the actual downloading.
These methods should work on most iOS devices, and we can confirm that they work on iOS 8, 9 and 10.
