How to Adjust TV App Video Download Settings on iPhone

If you have an Apple TV+ subscription or you’ve rented or purchased movies via iTunes, you can download the videos to your iPhone and iPad over Wi-Fi or cellular using Apple’s TV app, which allows you to watch them offline.

In iOS 13.4 and later, ‌iPhone‌ and ‌iPad‌ users have granular control of TV app video download settings. So if you want, you can choose high quality video if you don’t mind them taking longer to download and taking up more storage space. Alternatively, you can prioritize faster downloads that take up less storage, but at the price of video quality.

You can adjust these settings independently for when you’re downloading over Wi-Fi or cellular, which is particularly handy if you don’t have an unlimited data plan or you don’t want to hog your household’s bandwidth. Simply follow the series of steps below to adjust the download quality over the data connection that applies to you.
