Netflix has announced the arrival of its Smart Downloads feature for iOS, enabling customers with an iPhone or iPad will enjoy the same intelligent download management feature as Android and Windows 10 users.
Now, that very same functionality has made its way over to Netflix's iOS app, ensuring that your "downloads" list is automatically populated with the next unwatched episode and cleared of the ones you've already binged through. But do keep in mind that if you are into binge-watching a TV series and want to watch it again in one go, the Smart Downloads feature is not for you, primarily because it automatically deletes a previously watched episode to free up space. If you want to store more episodes you need to turn Smart Downloads off. Whether it is smart downloading or viewing a mobile preview, we realize the best part of Netflix is connecting with the stories you will love in an easier and more fun way. You need the appropriate app and offline storage to use Smart Downloads. With new updates like the Smart Download app allowing viewers to stay tuned in with their favorite shows wherever, whenever, it's exciting to think about the possibilities where the industry is headed.More news: Your old smartphone could be made into a 2020 Olympic medal
