Last Tuesday (March 21), Apple released iTunes 12.6 with a new feature that Apple dubbed as “Rent once, watch anywhere.” That is to say, you can rent iTunes movies on one device and then watch the rental movies on any of your device. This new feature requires iPhone, iPad with iOS 10.3 and Apple TV running tvOS 10.2.
Prior to iTunes 12.6, you can’t transfer rented movies on your iOS device or Apple TV to another device. And if you rent a movie on your Mac or PC, you can sync this movie to your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, but the movie will disappear from your computer’s iTunes library then. In addition, you can also use AirPlay to stream rented movies from your computer or iOS device to Apple TV.
Watch iTunes Movie Rentals Across Your Devices in iOS 10.3
Just a week after the release of iTunes 12.6, iOS 10.3 is available to us. And now you can watch iTunes movie rentals across your iPhone or iPad in iOS 10.3, not just the one you initially made the rent. To install iOS 10.3 on your iPhone/iPad, go to Settings > General > Software Update to download the software updates.
