Do you have a video stored in iCloud that you want to download and save to your camera roll? It’s actually quite simple. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps of downloading a video from iCloud to your camera roll on your iOS device.

Step 1: Open the Photos App

First, open the ‘Photos’ app on your iOS device. Look for the ‘Photos’ icon on your home screen or in your app drawer and tap it to open.

Tip: If you have a lot of apps on your device, use the search bar at the top of your screen and type ‘Photos’ to quickly find it.

Step 2: Select the Video

Next, locate the video that you want to download from iCloud. You can find it under the ‘Videos’ album or by using the search bar at the top of your screen.

Once you have found it, tap on it to open it in full screen mode.

Step 3: Download from iCloud

Now that you have opened the video, tap on the cloud icon with a downward arrow located at the top right corner of your screen. This will initiate a download from iCloud onto your device.

The download time may vary depending on several factors such as file size and internet speed. Be patient and wait for it to complete before moving on to the next step.

Tip: Ensure that you are connected to a stable Wi-Fi network while downloading large files like videos from iCloud.

Step 4: Save Video To Camera Roll

Once the video is downloaded successfully onto your device, tap on ‘Done’. Now, tap and hold on the downloaded video until a menu appears with options like ‘Save Video’, ‘Copy’, etc.

Tap on ‘Save Video’. The video will be saved directly into your camera roll where you can access it anytime, even without an internet connection.

Tip: You can also share the video directly from the ‘Photos’ app using the ‘share’ icon at the bottom left corner of your screen.


And that’s it! You have successfully downloaded a video from iCloud onto your iOS device and saved it to your camera roll. With these simple steps, you can easily download any video from iCloud and access it offline on your device.
