How to Add/Delete Podcasts and Episodes in the Podcasts App on iPhone

Since we began writing a slew of podcasts related posts here at iGeeksBlog, I’ve become glued to the app through a few podcasts.

Here’s one more and what’s possibly the most basic tutorials of all. Here’s how to add and delete podcasts and episodes in your Podcasts app. Easily.

  1. I cannot believe what you are saying. Podcast is the worst app I have ever come across . I have been using some other paid apps and they are way much better than the apple one. You only have to read the apple discussion forums to get a better judgement. The only way I can understand you praising apples is that you are not a podcast listener or not an active one
