Instead of TV shows and movies consolidating under the umbrella of a single source as many of us once hoped for, there has been an explosion of original content from a plethora of sources that keeps us picking and choosing our subscriptions à la carte. Some of these providers let you download content to watch offline, some don't, and some charge extra for the service.
If you want to watch YouTube videos offline you need to sign up for YouTube Premium for $15.99/month, which is pretty steep if you just want to watch your typical YouTube content, not shows and movies. There is a way, however, to download content for offline viewing without subscribing to the premium service. You can do it with the Documents by Readdle app, which is a file manager and media player. Here's how to do it on iPhone and iPad:
The Venmo app is a digital wallet that makes sending cash to friends, family and even vendors easier than PayPal. Venmo links your account by your phone number, while PayPal uses your email. This allows Venmo to easily locate your friends and family using your device's built-in contacts, and typically makes searching for someone easier within the app. Venmo users are also assigned a QR code that other users can scan using their mobile device's camera. Many iOS users prefer the Venmo app over PayPal because it makes sending cash easier and quicker than having to fumble with clunky email addresses.
Apple's Screen Time feature, which debuted with iOS 12, allows the user to set time limits on how long apps can be used, which is great if you have kids that use your phone incessantly, and useful as a reminder for yourself to focus on something other than your iPhone. The Screen Time App Limits section lets you add limits by categories such as "Games," "Entertainment," "Social Networking" and so on.
The Reading List feature in Safari is a great way to set aside web pages to read later, rather than bookmarking each one or leaving a tab open for every article you want to peruse. Not only does it let you keep all of your to-read items in one place, but it lets you save them so you can read them offline as well. Obviously this is a useful feature for air travel or any time you might be in a remote location with poor connectivity. Here's how to use Safari's Reading List on iPhone and iPad:
