Loop a video on iPhone or iPad

2) Click the plus icon to save the video. You can do this on the video itself if you’re in full screen or on the toolbar right below the video.

3) When the Save video to screen displays, tap to add a New Playlist.

4) Name your list, select who can view it, and tap the checkmark on the top right when you finish.

7) Beneath the video, within the playlist screen, tap the Loop button.

Keep in mind that if you add more videos to this playlist and tap the Loop button, it will loop through all of the videos saved (as shown above). So, if you just want one video to play over and over, you should put it in its own playlist.
