Apple Podcasts app is adding two new charts as it wants to make sure people know the shows and channels with the most subscribers. These charts are available for popular channel subscriptions in the US, the UK, Canada, and Australia.
Apple Podcasts Subscriptions option was added a year ago. It allows creators to host bonus content and ad-free versions of their shows in exchange for a monthly subscription.
For example, you can listen to 9to5Mac Happy Hour ad-free. At the time, Apple had partnered with large podcasts networks, including Wondery and Luminary, to get their paywalled shows available inside Apple Podcasts app.
With more podcasts switching to a subscription offer, Apple is creating these new charts. Here’s how they’re described:
These new charts are available for users in the US, the UK, Canada, and Australia. They must be running iOS 15.6, iPadOS 15.6, and macOS 12.5, or later. The Apple Podcasts Charts are refreshed throughout each day and available here.
