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

Of late, I’ve been quite tuned-in to the Podcasts app on the iPhone. I’ll admit one thing. Since we began writing a slew of podcasts related posts here at iGeeksBlog, I’ve become glued to the app through a few podcasts. And frankly, despite having written about and tried a few podcast alternatives, I think Podcasts app is power-packed. We’ve seen a few tutorials for the Podcasts app (which you can find here). 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. How to Add or Delete Podcasts and Episodes in iPhone and iPad 1. How to Subscribe Podcasts Stations in Podcasts App on iPhone or iPad: Subscribe Podcasts Channel in Podcasts App on iPhone or iPad

Adding and deleting a podcast station is pretty easy. When it gets to episodes, though, it can be a little confusing. Here’s the basic rule of the thumb: you can delete episodes from a particular station. When you remove it, it gets deleted from the iPhone/iPad, so you’ll have to re-download it again if you want it back. 3. Let’s first check out how you can delete episodes from a podcast station: Delete Episodes in Podcasts App on iPhone or iPad

  • Tap on a particular podcast station to see the episode list
  • Swipe on the episode you want to delete. A delete button appears.
  • Tap on the Delete button.

4. If you want to mark a lot of episodes for deletion, here’s what you need to do:

  • In the episode list (shown after you tap on a podcast station), tap on Edit
  • Mark the episodes you want to delete
  • Hit the Delete button on top.

  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
