How to download and play Netflix movies onto iPad Air or iPad mini? Let’s find out in this article.


It’s a great experience to watch Netflix movies & TV shows on iPad Air or iPad Mini. However, most movies only stream a certain time period. The better choice is to have some Netflix movies downloaded onto hard drive for watching later on your iPad. And in this article, we will offer you a full guide on how to download and watch Neflix movies on iPad Air/mini on the go.
Part I. Download Netflix of playback on iPad offline

Step 1: Get up to date

First things first, you’ll need to make sure your Netflix app has been updated to be ready for downloading. If you don’t have your device set to auto update, for iOS devices you can simply click on the app in the app store to get version 9.0.1 or later.

Step 2: Choose your download quality

To choose, tap the menu icon on the left, then scroll down to App Settings. From here, under the Downloads heading, tap Video Quality and select your preference.

Note: Standard uses less space on your device and downloads faster, while Higher takes a bit more space. Which one you’ll want to use will depend on how much free space you have on your device, and what kind of device you’re using

Step 3: Pick your poison

To get there, tap the menu button in the upper left and it’s the first option below the Home section. If you’re searching for specific titles simply look for the download icon, which looks like an arrow pointing down to a line.


Note: Not everything on Netflix is available for download, but the company has made downloadable titles easy to find by arranging them in a special section called simply “Available for Download.”

Step 4: Get downloading

To begin downloading, simply tap on the download icon on the show or movie you want to watch.
