With iOS 17, Apple Podcasts features a refreshed Now Playing experience and Queue, episode art, search filters, and the ability to connect subscriptions to top apps from the App Store. These features and more are included in iOS 17, iPadOS 17, macOS 14, watchOS 10, and tvOS 17.

Listeners will enjoy a refreshed Now Playing experience, which features a sleek, dynamic background that showcases a podcast’s art and provides enhanced controls for managing the Queue.

With iOS 17, listeners tap the Playing Next button to see the next episode. To add an episode to the Queue, tap the More menu (...), or press and hold on an episode, and then tap Add to Queue. Once an episode has been added, Playing Next will present a new Queue section, making it easy to reorder and clear episodes. When listeners play all episodes that have been added, Apple Podcasts will continue playing episodes in Up Next.

From Playing Next, listeners can also access chapters in episodes. Chapters now display the duration of each chapter and the remaining time for the current chapter. Learn More
