We know a bit more about what Apple has in store for iOS 14 users thanks to an operating system copy leak that has been circulating since last year. The company is expected to announce the free update on Monday, June 22 at the WWDC 2020 special event. According to the latest version, iOS 14 will bring a new Podcast app with a “For You” section.
Apple to Include Improved Podcast App with ‘For You’ Recommendations and More
This is not the first time that Apple has made recommendations to its applications because Apple Music already offers them. Now the “For You” recommendations section arrives in the new Podcast app. The feature will allow users to discover content that is more relevant to their interests. In addition, your friends will be able to see what you are listening to using user profiles.
As for creators, they will be able to create bonus content for their podcasts that may include behind-the-scenes content or bloopers. Apple is working on original podcast programming that will give the platform an edge over competitors like Spotify.
Spotify added a new feature to the mix last year that allowed users to add podcasts to their music playlists. Spotify has the resources to further improve the podcast listening experience, having acquired the Anchor, Gimlet, and Parcast podcasting platforms in the past.
Apple’s plan to revamp the Podcast app in iOS 14 with a dedicated “For You” section is something that users should get excited about. The company is expected to announce iOS 14 along with other software on Monday. Apple also shared the event’s live stream link on YouTube. We’ll be covering the event extensively, so stay tuned with us. Also, share your thoughts on the new Podcast app in the comments.
