Netflix’s iOS app can now automatically download your next episode

Today, Netflix has revealed that the Smart Downloads feature, which was  launched on Android last year, is coming to iOS.

The feature, which can be toggled on and off from the Downloads section of the app, automatically deletes each downloaded episode as you watch them. When you’re connected to Wi-Fi, it will also download the next episode in the series.

According to Netflix, the feature is meant to save you the time and effort of going through your old files and manually clearing them out, and to allow you to start watching the next episode faster.

The feature which is available starting today can be toggled off if you’re intending on watching an episode multiple times.
