"How do I download video from YouTube to my iPhone or iPad?" is one of the most popular requests on search engine. You can download from YouTube with a Premium subscription if you don't mind pay for it. But the YouTube videos will be gone if the owner pulls them offline. So, the best way is to download the resources to your iPhone/iPad folder. Then you don't need to worry about that and  you can watch it away from cellular network and Wi-Fi at any time.


Therefore, I compile two ways for you to help you out. One is an online downloader which enables you download YouTube videos to your iPhone/iPad directly. The other is a desktop software which provides you with batch download, quick speed and better experience in a professional way. After you have tried it out, I believed saving YouTube videos to your iPhone is no longer a tricky business.
