YouTube allows users with an option to download a video natively from the application. But there are many creators who have made their video restricted from downloading. If you come across such a video, worry not, there are still ways to download video onto your iPhone’s camera roll. Downloading a video file from the traditional iOS browser is not easy due to many restrictions of which some are valid.
