After arriving on Android last summer, Netflix Smart Downloads have arrived for iOS. Now when you finish watching a downloaded episode it will be deleted and the next episode will automatically download.
Netflix Smart Downloads
You can manually turn Smart Downloads on or off as you need it. The feature only works on Wi-Fi so you won’t accidentally use up your cellular data.
We know how annoying it can be to go through all your apps and delete files you no longer need; we also understand that when it comes to Netflix, the faster you can get to the next episode you want to watch, the better. 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.
