With Apple’s iOS 6 launch at the WWDC 2012 becoming highly popular and much talked about event, Apple has decided to launch standalone apps for podcasts. In fact, this is similar to what Apple had done earlier during the time of its introducing of iTunes. Apple’s podcast producing technology is certainly going to render a boost to Apple’s iOS 6 platform. It is surely going to bring it further into limelight, while simultaneously overtaking all the other platforms in operation and devised by its competitors. And that’s what, in my opinion, Apple is just intending to do.
At its education event last January, Apple has introduced standalone iTunes U app. With its panning on launching a standalone app for podcasts, Apple is rewriting its old strategy. As AllThingsD suggests that although Apple plans to include the app in iOS 6 this fall, its release would be with the final version of iOS 6. Also, as iOS 6 will be available for the general public this fall, podcasts will have their own app so as to allow the users to discover, download and play the same on their mobile devices. The users of iTunes via desktops and laptop will find them in that particular version of iTunes.
Apart from this, Apple seems to be also working on enhancing its podcast-producing technology just to smoother the inclusion of it into the app. Allowing its users easy access as well as finesse in exploring , downloading, and playing, has always been Apple’s theme objective. Moreover, with iOS 6 Apple seems to have segmented several content categories into more systematic standalone apps, thus removing Audiobooks, iTunes U, and Podcasts sections from the iTunes app.
As part of its process of breaking the different content categories into standalone apps, many noticed with iOS 6 that Apple removed the Podcasts, Audiobooks, and iTunes U sections from the iTunes app.
