Apple Podcasts Subscriptions is delayed.
As reported by 9to5Mac, Apple has sent an email to podcasters on its platform that it is delaying the launch of Apple Podcasts Subscriptions, its new feature that will allow podcasters to offer a paid tier of a podcast within the Apple Podcasts app.
While the feature was originally planned to launch in May, Apple is delaying its release until June "to ensure we are delivering the best experience for creators and listeners."
The letter also addressed some of the issues that podcasters and listeners were experiencing when iOS 14.5 released to the public.
When Apple Podcasts Subscriptions launches in June, podcasters will be able to offer a paid tier to their podcast that grants listeners access to exclusive episodes and more.
