Starting next week, Apple will support paid subscriptions in its Podcasts app. Support was supposed to come sooner, but Apple wasn’t ready yet. The support will be in place from Tuesday 15 June.
With the subscriptions, listeners can access bonus content or access episodes earlier, Apple says in an email to podcasters that 9to5Mac refers to . The release was planned for last month, but the manufacturer decided to postpone the release of subscriptions and to tinker with the function.
That is necessary, because according to The Verge , many makers complain that Apple Podcasts no longer work properly. For example, episodes sometimes do not appear or appear later in the feed of users and artwork disappears. It is unknown how widespread that problem is. Apple announced support for paid subscriptions in Podcasts in April.
