How to Submit Your Podcast to Apple Podcasts (Formerly Known as iTunes)

This article is a step-by-step guide about how to submit your podcast to Apple Podcasts.

You have probably heard of people talking about submitting your podcast to iTunes, but unfortunately, Apple has discontinued hosting podcasts on iTunes. iTunes’ podcast section grew large, and Apple decided that there should be a new platform (outside of iTunes) dedicated just for podcasts, Apple Podcasts.

Now iTunes and Apple Podcasts are two separate entities. This article is a step-by-step guide about how to submit your podcast to Apple Podcasts. Apple Podcasts is one of the biggest podcast platforms, and submitting your show to them should be your top priority. 

  1. Make sure your show meets Apple’s requirements (system, feed, artwork, content, etc).
  1. Have your Apple ID on hand. You can create one for free here. If you are not sure if you have one or have forgotten it, you can find out with Apple ID Support.
  1. Go to iTunes Podcasts Connect.
  1. Login with your Apple ID.
  1. Click “+” on the top left corner to add your show.
  1. Enter your RSS feed address.
  1. Validate and submit your show. 
  1. Apple sends you an email to confirm your podcast is under review, and it shows up in your dashboard. 
  1. When it’s approved, Apple sends you another email with the link to your active podcast.

If you are experiencing any trouble, you can go to their Troubleshoot Submission Errors page. Also, if you need to submit your podcast to Google Podcasts, or Spotify we have you covered.
