Updated May 17,2018 | by Micky

Due to restrictions by Google and Safari, many YouTube downloading Apps no longer work on iPhone and other iOS devices like Video Downloader and Free Video Downloader. How to download YouTube videos from Safari to iPhone becomes a major question constantly asked by iOS users. To tackle this issue, we are going to work our way through the following tutorial and check whether there are any other tools with similar video downloading features that haven’t been banned or alternatives for iOS YouTube video download.


Download YouTube Videos from iPhone Safari via A Video Download Browser

Tool 1 Video Download Browser

Although many iOS Apps’ video downloading features have been removed, you might as well try this amazing browser I am going to illustrate below which still contains an inbuilt video downloader.


1.       Download Video Download Browser from Safari, launch it, head for and locate the video you want, or directly go to the YouTube App, find the video, copy its link and paste it into the browser.

2.       Once you play the video, a notification “Save to Memory” pops up. Confirm it and the video download will begin as you can see the red “1” at the bottom which indicates the downloading process. If the notification doesn’t appear, just tap on the downloading button right above the red “1” as what the picture shows below.


3.       After the YouTube video download is accomplished, head for the video tab and tap on the information icon “ I” and select “Save to Camera Roll”.

Now, you can view your favorite YouTube video offline on iPhone.


Tool 2 Documents 6

If you can’t find Video Download Browser I mentioned above, it is possibly removed from the internet. Luckily, there is another better alternative App named Documents 6 that also contains a browser with a feature of YouTube video download.

1.       Copy the link to your desired YouTube video you found in Safari.

2.       Launch Documents 6 and within this App, tap on the blue icon of the browser at the lower right bottom.

3.       Go to the page of YouTube video downloader, paste the URL onto the blank downloading box and then tap on “Download to PC” (in reality, it will be downloaded to your iPhone).


4.       Select your desired video format and tap on the download button beside it.

5.       You will be prompted to set the name of the downloaded file and select an output location. After finished, tap on “Save” to start the video download.
