Apple Podcasts features the largest national and international format programs to listen to on iPhone. Apple's player organizes podcasts into distinct categories and allows users to easily find their favorite episodes. Another plus point is that the app has the option to download the audio to listen to later, even offline. The native iOS app is available for free on iPhones, iPads and iPods Touch.

With the end of iTunes, announced at WWDC 2019, Apple Podcasts will also be available on macOS Catalina, which is expected to be released in the second half. On the smartphone, the app was available a few years ago and can be downloaded from the App Store. Check out the tutorial below on how to use Apple Podcasts on your phone.
