How to Download YouTube videos to iPhone

Although YouTube does not allow downloading videos to iPhone, online several procedures allow you to do this. In this guide, we will see all methods available for iPhone without neglecting even the proposal (Premium) of the YouTube application itself.

YouTube Premium

Let’s start with YouTube Premium, or the official subscription service owned by Google. In fact, among its many functions, it also offers the offline download of the uploaded videos, which are then visible within the same application.

  • Open the YouTube app
  • Search for the video to download
  • Start playing the same video
  • Click on the symbol “Download” under the player
  • Request the YouTube Premium free trial (in case the service is not already active)

All downloaded downloads will appear in the section “Collection” of your profile within the same application.

Siri commands

Another straightforward method to download a YouTube video on iPhone, without using third-party apps, is to take advantage of the “Commands” service included as standard on iOS.

Preliminary operations

Before starting, however, we would like to clarify that it is still necessary to have the app “Commands” and if this is not the case, you will need to download it from the App Store. Once done, you will need to consent to the use of third-party commands.

  • Open the app “Settings.”
  • Continue with “Quick Commands”
  • Activate the voice “Untrusted commands.”

Download and use the command

At this point, you can proceed with the installation and use of the command.

  • To open “Safari” on iPhone
  • Access the command page by clicking on this link
  • Click on the blue button “Get Quick Commands” down
  • Add the command to your gallery
  • Open the official YouTube app
  • Search for the video to download
  • Start playing the same video
  • Click on the symbol “Share” under the player
  • Continue with “Other…”
  • Go down and click on the name of the command you just added (Social Media Downloader)

The download will be performed automatically. At the end of the operation, you can decide to save the content in the gallery or send it. In both cases, you will need to click on the share button.

Safari

You will surely be aware that, starting with iOS 13, Safari allows the download of any type of file on the iPhone. So let’s see how to do it.

  • Open the official YouTube app
  • Search for the video to download
  • Start playing the same video
  • Click on the symbol “Share” under the player
  • Continue with “Copy link”
  • Open Safari and access the savefrom.net website by clicking on this link
  • Paste the link you just copied into the search bar
  • Conclude with “DOWNLOAD” to his right and then with “Download NOW” (after eventually choosing the desired quality)

Total files

In case you prefer to use a specific application or do not yet have iOS 13, we recommend the simplest solution to use, that is “Total files”.

  • Download the Total files app by clicking on this link
  • Open Total files and continue with the first configuration
  • Click on the globe symbol at the bottom right to launch the integrated browser
  • Access the YouTube website from the same app
  • Start playing your favorite video
  • Click on the green check mark that appears as soon as the video starts playing
  • Choose the save folder and wait for the download to finish
