With WWDC 2020 and iOS 14’s announcement just around the corner, new rumours point towards updates to Apple Podcasts bringing personalized recommendations.
Apple are due to take to the stage next Monday 22nd June, where among other things they will announce iOS 14 and the many new updates to the iPhone’s software. One of the apps thought to be updated is Apple Podcasts.
Apple Podcasts in iOS 14 will likely bring personalized suggestion similar to the ‘For You’ section of Apple Music. This will provide you with podcasts you may like based on what you already listen to. This is a feature we’ve seen for a while on services such as Spotify Podcasts, and is a much appriciated recommendation feature, rather than scrolling through charts or word-of-mouth.
Creators will also be able to offer ‘bonus content’ for each podcast, similar to that offered when buying a movie in Apple TV. Apple Podcasts may also allow you to create public profiles and follow friends to see what they’re subscribed and listening to.
