Apple Podcasts on iOS and in iTunes are a little easier to browse, thanks to the addition of new content categories. First teased in June, the new categories span a series of popular genres, from true crime to comedy.
Here's the full list of new Apple Podcasts categories:
- True Crime
- Society and Culture
- Kids & Family
- Religion and Spirituality
- TV & Movies
- Health and Fitness
When you click on one of the categories, you can browse through top shows and new shows. Some of the new top-level categories also include subcategories. For example, Sports now features a Wilderness subcategory.
In addition, Apple Podcasts will feature "more to explore" and "long-running shows" as part of its push for increased curation.
