Downloading a YouTube video can help you save the data that would be used on viewing it over and over again. YouTube offers a subscription service called YouTube Premium, which allows you to save videos on the YouTube app on your iPhone, giving you the option to view them multiple times without needing to stream them. The saved videos can also be accessed while you’re offline. The only downside is that you can only view your saved videos until your subscription lasts. So, here is how to download YouTube videos to your iPhone camera roll to view them anytime.
There are also services that help you with MP3 download as well. However today we will specifically talk about Downloading Videos from YouTube.
Downloading the YouTube video as a file to your phone does not require a YouTube Premium subscription, and you can keep it saved on your phone for however long you want.
