How often do you find a beautiful video on Facebook that you want to download on your iPhone? Facebook is one of the most popular video sites, with over 2 billion monthly active users. But despite all its beauty, Facebook doesn't offer any formal means for users to save their recordings. So, it's not as easy as pressing a single download button if you're asking how to download Facebook videos on your iPhone. The good news is that you can still easily save the Facebook video to your iPhone. To learn how to do it, read this article by scrolling down.

Part 1: Using Facebook++ to download Facebook videos to an iPhone

Facebook++ is a different tried-and-true way to download private Facebook videos on an iPhone. You may easily save any Facebook video using this app. Think of it as an unofficial Facebook extension that allows you to download videos.

But keep in mind that this method necessitates downloading a few third-party tools on your computer. Also, to download this, you must remove the regular Facebook app. Naturally, the entire process can be rather time-consuming, but it is entirely worthwhile.

Without further ado, here's how to use Facebook++ to download Facebook videos to your iPhone:

Step1 Open this page on your computer and get the IPA file there. Install "Cydia Impactor" as well.

Step2 At this point, join your iPhone and PC.

Step3 Drag and drop the Facebook++ file into Cydia Impactor when it has opened. Likewise, enter your Apple ID password.

Step4 Your phone will now have Facebook++ installed automatically.

Step5 Go to Settings > General > Profile after saving the Facebook video to your iPhone. Open this profile using your Apple ID, then select "Trust" from the menu.

Step6 Open the Facebook++ app. And the Save option to download Facebook videos to your iPhone will appear.

Part 2: Using a screen recorder to download Facebook videos for iPhone

Another way to download Facebook videos on iPhone is using the iPhone's built-in recording feature. The iPhone records the screen in HD, which might take up a lot of space on the phone, so it shouldn't be the primary option.

This can be a problem if you want to show the video to someone else. What you must do is as follows, in any case:

Step1 If it isn't already there, go to Settings > Control Center and make sure to include the "Screen Recording" feature.

Step2 Then, press the Screen Record icon in the Control center by swiping down from the top-right corner of the screen.

Step3 Log into Facebook and start the chosen video. Within 3 seconds, the recording will start.

Step4 To stop the recording, click the identical symbol. The Facebook video will be saved to the iPhone gallery.

Part 3: How to Download Facebook Videos of HD Quality

Following these easy procedures will allow users to download HD movies from Facebook even without the use of any downloaders:

Step1 Choose your favorite videos on Facebook and right-click them to start Step 1. A video URL will appear on the screen. The URL is copied.

Step2 Open your browser, paste the copied URL in the new tab's address box, and then hit Enter.

Step3 Right-click anywhere on the page, and then select "Video Page Source" from the drop-down menu.

Step4 Hold down the CTRL and F keyboard shortcuts until a search box displays on the screen. Then, type "hdsrc:" into the search box.

Step5 Now that the text is enclosed in quotes and is followed by hdsrc, copy that text.

Step6 Open your browser and paste the link you just copied into it. Press the Enter key.

Step7 Right-click the video as it begins to play on your device's screen and select "Save Video as" to save it to your device.


This is all about how to download Facebook videos on iPhone. So, using the ways described above in detail, you may now download videos for offline viewing and edit them.
