In fact, this is the type of feature the iPhone will surely never get.
That means you won’t have to hog your phone’s main memory with videos.

The iPhone doesn’t support expandable storage, and it’ll probably never will.
But at least the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus come with extra built-in storage if you need more space for Netflix downloads.
A Netflix rep told Engadget that you can download content to multiple SD cards.
“However, there are limits to how many simultaneous downloads a member can download at one time, along with limits on how long a download will remain accessible,” the person said.
“This ensures that the feature is being used for its intended purpose.”
Also of note, the downloaded shows can only be played on the device they were originally downloaded to, a move that’s likely meant to prevent piracy.
Just update your Netflix app to the latest version to take advantage of this new feature.
