I am downloading the movie Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. But because I am using hotel Wi-Fi, it is slow and I will be leaving the hotel before it finishes.

So here is my question: If I disconnect from a network before the movie finishes downloading, but then later connect to a different network, will the movie resume downloading from where it left off?

I am using an iPad mini (don't know if it is 2/3) running iOS 10.2. I am downloading the movie via the iTunes Store.

  • Welcome to Ask Different! :) Can you please edit your question to explain how you're actually downloading the movie (i.e. what app are you using, from what site, etc)? – Monomeeth May 11 '17 at 13:26

  • Based on this, I'd say.... Yes, maybe... The word they use in that page is "restart", which keeps the whole article a bit vague when it comes to this, but at least in the ios screenshot it says "Resume download". – Joonas May 11 '17 at 13:42
  • I tried it with a song on my ipad, and that at least seems to continue where I left off, after I shut down the connection and/or switched to another network. – Joonas May 11 '17 at 13:49

Yes, if you switch to another network, the download resumes from where it was interrupted (the download will pause as long as you not connected to a wifi, in your case).
