What's new for Apple Podcasts in iOS 16.4

LISTEN · · 2.6 minutes to read
  • The next version of iOS and macOS will include a few changes to Apple Podcasts. A list of channels will appear within your library; there are improvements with the Up Next queue; and CarPlay improvements.

    • This is also the release that finally removes the AppleCoreMedia user agent from Apple Podcasts, which will significantly improve the accuracy of podcast stats. The new code in iOS to achieve this was announced in June last year: most other podcast apps have put it in place.
    • Podnews has an Apple Podcasts channel, and you can get our three podcasts ad-free by subscribing.
  • SiriusXM is still number one for podcasting, according to iHeart-owned Triton Digital. The January podcast ranker for the US also has a brand new #1 show - NPR News Now, which has overtaken Crime Junkie. The ranker measures participating publishers only.

  • The online podcast creation tool Podcastle has added a new service called Revoice. After reading 70 sentences, the tool makes a clone of your voice, so you can record podcasts, or make changes, just using text. Podcastle also includes a remote recording tool, a multitrack browser-based editor, noise reduction and automated removal of filler words. You can hear this paragraph read by Podcastle’s Revoice tool in our Podnews Daily podcast today.
