As you may know, there is only one official way for you to download YouTube videos, which is to subscribe to YouTube Premium. However, YouTube Premium only allows you to download videos and music on your mobile devices like mobile phones or tablets, and you can just keep these items on your device for up to 30 days.
Thus, if you want to copy a video from YouTube to your computer or to your iPhone/iPad permanently, YouTube won't help.
