Download podcasts for offline listening or save them in the Podcasts app

iOS 14.5 added the ability to save and download podcast episodes in the Podcasts app.

While you’ve been able to download episodes of podcasts in the Podcasts app for a while, the latest version of iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 now lets you save those episodes to a special list in your library. Now, anytime you want to listen to a saved episode of your favorite podcast later, you can do so with a couple of taps in the Podcasts app. This allows you to turn your best iPhone into an offline podcast playing machine with a playlist of all your saved episodes.

Here’s how to save and download episodes in the Podcasts app on iPhone and iPad.

How to save episodes in the Podcasts app

When you save an episode of a podcast in the Podcasts app, it will do two things. It automatically downloads the episode, so you can listen to it offline whenever you want, and it will add it to the saved list in your Podcasts app Library.

  1. Launch the Podcasts app from your Home screen.
  2. Find the episode you want to save.
  3. Tap beside the episode you want to save.
  4. Tap Save Episode.

You’ll see a pop-up on your screen that says episode saved, and now you’ll be able to find the saved episode from the saved tab in your library.

How to remove saved episodes in the Podcasts app

When you remove a saved episode, it will only remove it from the saved list in your library. It will not delete the downloaded episode from the downloaded list in your library like any other download podcast episode.

  1. Launch the Podcasts app from your Home screen.
  2. Tap the Library tab along the bottom of your screen.
  3. Tap Saved.

  4. Tap beside the saved episode you want to remove.
  5. Tap Unsaved episode.
