How to download movies and series from Apple TV + at the highest quality on iPhone and iPad
You just got on the plane that will take you to a few days of vacation rest. It’s a 4-hour trip, so you’ve preemptively downloaded some Apple TV+ movies or series to your iPhone or iPad to entertain yourself during the flight. But you start watching that show offline and… you notice something. The video quality is not what you are normally used to seeing. What has happened
Choosing priorities: definition is better than download speed
What has happened is simple. By default, Apple TV + seeks to save storage space on the iPad and therefore downloads your movies and series at a quality that is not the maximum. We can solve it from the TV application’s own preferences.
If you go to iOS Settings and look for the ‘TV’ section you will see these options in the ‘Download Options’ section. Both are the same, but differentiate between whether you are connected to a Wi-Fi network or to the mobile network:
If you click on Wi-Fi (more than recommended time to download the series) you can choose between fast download or high quality download. Select that last one:
From now on, as long as you are connected to a Wi-Fi network, the download will be done with better quality and you will be able to enjoy the content of Apple TV + as it deserves. You can repeat that configuration in the mobile data option, but be careful: the data consumption will skyrocket.
