Apple podcasts not updating
I've had trouble on and off with it from the start... There are thousands of other choices that are very secure, work well, and offer more free space than i Cloud. You can set the podcasts app to download your podcasts automatically, and choose whether to save them or delete after listening, through one of the settings in the app. I too had a problem with my podcasts not updating their i Tunes feeds, even though the i Tunes store showed the latest episodes!I wish I could find a way to actually reset the sync data for my appleid. and no, just deleting/unsubscribing from all podcasts on all devices does not work. Once I unchecked the "Sync Podcast Subscriptions and Settings" in Preferences, i Tunes downloaded three days' worth of podcasts.Once I unchecked the "Sync Podcast Subscriptions and Settings" in Preferences, i Tunes downloaded three days' worth of podcasts.I have no idea why this setting would have suddenly become a problem, but there it is.(it's 2018) This happens every time I try to utilize the podcast feature on i Pad, i Phone or my Mac Book Pro. While I accept that there could be a problem with the Podcast Feed, even that is the responsibility of the programme's producers (providing they know about the issue).
Apple states it takes up to 24 hours to show new episodes once you add them to your RSS feed, and unfortunately we cannot control any delays with i Tunes.Please note, as Apple states, “If your podcast is approved, you receive an email confirmation indicating your submission review is complete.Your confirmation email also includes the link to your active podcast.I think the changes to Podcasts including having the concept of episodes "in the cloud", or on one device but not the others, is contributing to these glitches.(Note: I let i Tunes on my laptop manage everything.I then put episodes into playlists in the order I want to listen to them and sync the playlists to the other devices from time to time.)Yes... clearly something is wrong with Apple's HORRIBLE i Cloud solution for syncing podcasts across all devices. I rarely sync podcasts, anyway--just i Pod and/or i Phone [used as an i Pod].
