‘Apple Podcasts+’ may debut at April 20 event

The rumor: Apple’s premium podcast subscription service is launching tomorrow, according to Peter Kafka (not yet tracked).

  • Kafka says that Apple will launch a paid subscription service for podcasts at their April 20 event
  • There have previously been rumblings of Apple stepping up their podcast plan, but no one has called a potential launch date until now

Our take: I have no idea who Kafka is, but considering he’s an executive editor at Recode and verified on Twitter, I assume there is some weight behind this. I just don’t know how much.
