☝️There’s just 1 caveat. If your Wi-Fi connection is weak or if you take a trip to a place without Wi-Fi – you may not be able to watch all these amazing movies on your iPad.

How to watch movies on iPad without Internet

Before we start, let’s make sure you are aware: you can watch movies on iPad without data, only if you download them beforehand.

There’s just no other way around.

If you are on iPad – you can easily download movies off Netflix or Amazon Prime. Alternatively, you can even rent movies in iTunes.

But in case you have your own movie collection or you have ripped movies from DVDs – we will show you how to quickly/easily/seamlessly send any video on iPhone and watch it without Wi-Fi or Internet data.

So how can you transfer a pre-downloaded movie to iPad?

One of the fastest ways to move any content to Apple devices is WALTR 2 developed by Softorino.

WALTR 2 is the iTunes alternative for the time-savvy people. This is a macOS & Windows app – that helps to sync movies to iPad in 3 quick steps.

What’s more, it also converts MKV, AVI, and other formats into the Apple-friendly ones.

First off – you will need to prepare a media file that you want to transfer.

My choice was Kingsman. Taron Egerton, who played Eggsy, the main character, is just adooorable!

In this article – we will transfer ‘Kingsman’ starring Taron Egerton on iPad.

1. Launch WALTR & Connect your iPhone.

As you open the app, connect the iPad to your computer. You don’t even need to use a USB cord!
