Instead of purchasing a movie from iTunes Store, iTunes also provides rental videos (such as movies). Comparing to purchased ones, iTunes rental videos have a time limitation, which requires users to start watching with 30 days when you pay for renting the movies. What's more, once you start watching the content, you only have 48 hrs to finish watching it. After the rental period, the videos would disappear from your iTunes Library.

Some may want to keep the iTunes rental videos forever on their iPhone X as a collection. Can we do that? Certainly, a YES would be given. In this tutorial, you could go through a super useful way to keep them on your new iPhone X forever!

Renting Movies from iTunes Store

The Restriction in iTunes Rentals

The main restriction of iTunes rentals, which greatly prevents users from keeping them refers to the FairPlay DRM (Digital Rights Management) protection. Actually, not only iTunes rental videos, including iTunes purchased video, audiobooks are also protected by Apple's FairPlay DRM. This technology means to protect the digital contents of Apple from being copied and transferred. As a result, we could not easily keep the iTunes rental videos as we want on our own iPhone X.
