iOS 14 to feature new Podcasts app with ‘For You’ recommendations
Apple is said to be giving its Podcasts app a major update with iOS 14, adding “For You” recommendations, the ability to follow friends to see what they are listening to, and more.
Set to be unveiled next week when Apple shows the future of iOS, iPadOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS at its highly-anticipated Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), a report from 9to5Mac offers an insight into what to expect from the app’s new update.
The report suggests like Apple Music, the Podcasts app will offer users personalized recommendations for new podcasts based on listening habits in a new “For You” tab.
Content creators are said to be able to create new bonus content for listeners, which will be similar to movie extras, and shown in the same feed as the podcast, but separate from regular episodes, the report says.
Like Apple Music, Apple is said to also be adding profiles to Podcasts to allow users to follow friends and see what they are listening to.
