After being available on Android devices since summer previous year, Netflix is now rolling out the Smart Downloads feature to iOS users. The feature also automatically deletes a downloaded episode after it has been watched, alleviating storage problems on mobile devices.

As the feature automatically deletes an episode for each one it downloads, this should ensure that there is always space available on your device.

While you don't need the internet to watch downloaded titles, you do need to be signed into your account.

If the feature is not enabled for your app, make sure you head over to the App Store and download the latest version of the app.

The feature has been available on the Android version of Netflix since the middle of past year.

Now you can binge watch on a portable device without blowing your data limit.

Microsoft cybersecurity expert: Please, stop using Internet Explorer as a web browser
The brand has struggled to shake off the bad reputation of Internet Explorer 6, which was notoriously insecure. Unfortunately, Internet Explorer isn't equipped to handle the modern web.

The feature only works when you're connected to Wi-Fi so it won't burn through your data. The feature is also available for Windows 10 devices. To do this, select the Menu icon and then "App Settings". For example, suppose you have already downloaded the first three episodes. Then under the "Downloads" heading, use the toggle to turn Smart Downloads on or off.

Netflix's Smart Downloads feature is flawless for those on the go, like anyone who often rides on underground trains.

If you want to know more about how Smart Downloads work, check out the help page that Netflix set up. In the last quarter, the company added 8.8 million new subscribers, including 7.31 million non-U.S. users.

The company says that this feature will improve the viewing experience for the users by making it easier for them to take their favourite Netflix shows and movies with them.

"The faster our members can get to the next episode of their favorite stories, the better", a Netflix spokesperson told PCMag.
