How to Enable or Disable Auto Play in the Amazon Prime Video App on an iPhone

Online video streaming has changed the way that people watch TV shows. Many popular streaming services will put out entire seasons of TV shows at the same time, thereby allowing people to “binge” watch the entire season as quickly as they want. This is a noted difference from the previous broadcast method of TV viewership, but it’s one that has become quite popular.

If you are trying to binge watch a TV show in the Prime Video app on your iPhone, then you may have noticed that it isn’t automatically playing the next episode. This is likely due to a setting called Auto Play being disabled on the device. Our tutorial below will show you where to change the Auto Play setting for the Prime Video iPhone app.
