How To Customize A Podcasts App

Before talking about customizing a podcast app, have it at the back of your mind that the Apple Podcasts application is already available for the Watch with watchOS 5. Also, have it in mind that it also has a series of settings that simply allow us to choose which episodes to download to listen to offline.


  1. Simply open the Settings app on your iOS device
  2. Carefully Scroll down and select the Podcasts section
  3. In the section “Episode downloads” you can activate the automatic elimination of episodes already listened, which will help in freeing up space in your device, and also choose which episodes you want to download automatically (only new ones, those not played, or none).
  4. In the “Forward/rewind buttons” section, you can customize the time range in which an episode moves forward or backward by pressing the corresponding button. Note that you can as well choose several options between ten seconds and one minute.
  5. It is important we make it known to you that if you are using car controls or headphones like AirPods, you can also customize if you use their controls to move forward or backward in the episode you’re listening to or to play the next or previous episode.

Please Note: You can also choose when your list of available new episodes is updated (every hour, every six hours, every day, every week or manually).
