Podcast Downloads Coming To iPhone 2.2 Firmware

Nov 6th, 2008 | By | Category: iPhone, iPods & Portable Media Players, Podcasting Software

German blog Schimanke.com has published new screenshots that show wireless podcast downloads enabled in Apple’s upcoming iPhone 2.2 firmware update. 

Check out the screen capture, right. 

It shows that much of the podcast find functionality of iTunes will be migrating to the iPhone. Users will be able to search for podcasts directly from the iPhone, browse featured podcasts, browse by category, and queue up podcasts for download. 

The new iTunes Store screenshots confirm that Apple will be delivering over-the-air downloads for both video and audio podcasts. According to Schimanke, podcast downloads will be limited to episodes less than 10MB in size when using the cellular network.

While this is still rumor, we’ve seen this reported independently from several sources, so it’s fair to say that support for podcasts on the iPhone is going to take a big leap very soon.
