How to Download a Movie to Your iPhone from the Disney + App
The steps in this article were performed on an iPhone 11 in iOS 13.1.3 using the most current version of the Disney + app that was available on the date this article was written.
Note that you will need to have a Disney + subscription to be able to do this. The Disney + app will periodically need to check with its servers to verify your subscription, so downloaded movies may not work if your device has been offline for an extended period of time.
Step 1: Open the Disney + app.
Step 2: Find the movie that you want to download to your iPhone.
Step 3: Tap the Download icon at the center of the screen.
It will take some time for the movie to download to your device, as the file sizes are quite large. There is also a Downloads tab at the bottom of the screen that you can tap to gain access to the downloaded movies.
