Safari makes it possible to download videos from various websites and content providers. While the process is straightforward, it does take a few steps to land the video you're watching on Safari into the Photos app. Safari has its own Downloads tab, which by default sends videos, photos, and documents directly to the Files app. The Files app has its own Downloads folder and syncs saved files to iCloud.

Apple's Files app is a great tool for organizing and managing your documents, photos, videos and other files from whatever device you are on.

Of course many of us use third party cloud storage apps like Google Drive, Dropbox, Amazon Drive, OneDrive and so on. These are compatible with Files, but you'll have to link them before you can start using them with the Files app. Here's how to do it on iPhone or iPad:
To move a file to a different folder in the Files app, simply deep press (or long press) it until a menu pops up. Select "Move" to bring up a directory tree. Tap on the folder you want to put it in then tap Copy in the top right corner.
