Last April, Apple announced that it would launch subscriptions for Apple Podcasts in May, allowing users to subscribe to premium content provided by podcast creators, where subscribers will be able to listen to content without ads and get additional content available to subscribers Only when you pay the creator to listen to their podcast.
And now, according to 9to5Mac, Apple has announced in an email to podcast providers that it will be delaying the launch of upcoming podcast subscriptions until June.
The company said it will delay the launch so it can ensure the best experience for creators and listeners.
