To download a video on your iPhone, you need to follow these steps:

1. Start by subscribing to YouTube Premium. You can do this by opening the YouTube app on your iPhone, tapping on your profile picture in the top-right corner, and selecting “Get YouTube Premium.” Follow the prompts to complete the subscription process.

2. Once you are subscribed, open the YouTube app and search for the video you want to download. You can browse through the available content or use the search bar to find specific videos.

3. When you have found the video you want to download, tap on it to open it.

4. Below the video player, you will see various options like “Like,” “Dislike,” “Share,” and “Save.” Tap on the “Save” button, which looks like a downward arrow pointing into a box. This will start the download process.

5. Depending on the length and quality of the video, it may take some time to download. You can monitor the progress of the download in the “Library” section of the YouTube app.

6. Once the video is downloaded, you can access it by tapping on the “Library” tab at the bottom of the YouTube app. In the Library, you will find a “Downloads” section where all your downloaded videos are stored.
