Earlier today, several reports from reputable media houses show that Apple’s podcasting app, Apple Podcasts, has been updated to iOS 15.1 with a new interface that prompts users to rate them in the App Store.

This app had a score of 1.8 in the App Store before October 25, according to a foreign media MacRumors report, but it has now jumped to 4.7, which is close to a perfect score of 5.

In terms of functionality, this app hasn’t evolved much in the last few years, and the premium subscription podcast component was only added this year. Because the Apple App Store’s scoring mechanism gives newer reviews more weight, a huge number of 5-star ratings recently raised Podcasts’ ranking.

A great number of users have recently given it high marks, not just for the app itself but also for the admiration of specific podcast content.

Several users share their own podcasting experiences and opinions in the comments, dubbing this program “the best podcasting app.”

The Apple Podcasts app began actively inviting users to rate it with the introduction of iOS 15.1.

Thousands of comments were received every day at this time, the majority of them were positive. The reason for the previous score of 1.8 is that Podcasts has a new problem that allows it to download a huge amount of duplicate content and cause synchronization errors after the iOS 14.5 upgrade.
