iPhone X (pronounced 'iPhone ten') is the 10 anniversary iPhone from Apple and is making big changes for 2017. It was announced on September 12, 2017 at the Steve Jobs Theater but won't be available until November. iPhone X is positioned as a high-end flagship phone which is built with a great amount of advanced technologies such as Face ID which helps to unlock system through face recognition, dual cameras with improved depth sensing, OLED display with up to 2436 x 1125 pixels resolution, wireless charging etc.
The biggest difference compared to the traditional iPhone is that it has removed the home button, making it highest in screen aspect ratio and brilliant for playing movies anytime anywhere. If you are considering to get an iPhone X for playing iTunes videos bought from your computer before, you don't need to purchase the videos again, just sync them to your iPhone X to enjoy on the go. But you may not do that for iTunes rentals. Why? Let's continue to find out the reasons.

Part 1. Play iTunes Rentals on iPhone X without Limitations
Unlike iTunes purchased movies which can be watched repeatedly anytime, iTunes rental movies are strictly limited. Once you have rent the movie, you are required to start to watch the movie within 30 days. Else it will be retrieved by Apple automatically. In addition, after starting watching the movie, you are expected to finish the watching within 48 hours. It will be expired after this time duration.
This is so annoying as we may not spare a long time to watch movies sometimes especially for the people who are busy. There are times when we'd like to entertain ourselves by watching iTunes videos when we are free such as waiting a bus, taking a taxi etc. Is there a way to unlock this iTunes rental limitation so that we can enjoy the iTunes DRM M4V movie on iPhone X any time we want on the go?
