How to sort podcasts in the Podcasts app for iPhone and iPad

The Podcasts app for iPhone and iPad can aggregate all your favorite podcasts in one place for you to enjoy whenever you'd like. However, if you subscribe to quite a few, sorting them the way you'd like may be important. Luckily, you have a few options.

Here's where to find them:

How to sort podcasts in the My Podcasts section

  1. Launch the Podcasts app from the Home screen of your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Tap on the My Podcasts tab if it isn't already selected.
  3. Scroll to the very top of the list if you aren't already there.
  4. Now pull down a little further just like you would in Mail or any other app that has a rubber band effect to reveal a search menu.
  5. Next to the search bar, tap on the Edit button.
  6. You may now drag podcasts in any order you'd like. Just tap Done when you're finished sorting.

How to change the sort order of a particular podcast playlist

  1. Launch the Podcasts app from the Home screen of your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Tap on the My Podcasts tab if it isn't already selected.
  3. Tap on the name of the podcast you'd like to change the sort order for.
  4. Now top on the Settings button.
  5. Here you can change the sort order for how you'd like podcast episodes to appear within the episodes list and how you'd like them to play.

How to sort podcasts in the Podcasts app for iPhone and iPad

This most recent version of the Podcast app took away something that I loved, and that was showing my podcasts interspersed in an oldest to newest order (like a DVR would). While sorting them is helpful, if you come across a way to show them "ungrouped" and sorted, that was my preferred way of consuming. It took all of the decision making out of the listening process... the oldest show came up next.
