I want to download multiple images and videos files on chrome and Firefox browsers of iPhone using javascript.
I get some solution in which they are creating a tag and setting all the necessary attributes and clicking on that is working but for me this solution is not working on iPhone browsers (Chrome and Firefox).
Below are the version of the browsers:
1- Chrome: 81.0.4044.124
2- Firefox: 28.1

What I have tried:

I tried the above solution but that is not working for me.

Did you ask in the Apple forums? What is an "Iphone Browser"? If you don't know, then that's your problem.

Yeah, I post this question there too. iPhone browsers mean (chrome, firefox, and safari browsers of iPhone), but my solution is working for safari and not working in chrome and firefox.

If you're using the download attribute on an <a> element, then you'll need iOS Safari version 13 or later:
Can I use... Download attribute[^]

If you can't upgrade, then you'll need to use a server which can send the correct content-disposition headers to download the file.

In Safari my solution is working, but the problem is coming in chrome and Firefox browsers of my iPhone.

Are the files you're downloading served from the same site as the page you're downloading them from? If not, Firefox won't honour the download attribute. The only way to achieve 100% browser compatibility is to have the server send a Content-Disposition: attachment header with the file.

yes, I am downloading from the same-origin and I tried with Content-Disposition too as you mentioned earlier. If you see in my question, it is working in chrome and firefox browsers of my windows laptop and android phone, but only on iPhone, I am not able to download.
