Background App Refresh
Pocket Casts supports Background App Refresh. This means that iOS can wake up the app to perform tasks like syncing and auto downloading episodes.
The frequency with which iOS will wake up Pocket Casts depends on how regularly you use the app. This means that if you do not use Pocket Casts often, you may find that auto downloads will not begin until you open the app.
New episode notifications should trigger a Background App Refresh.
To enable notifications
- Toggle New Episodes to on.
To check that Background App Refresh is on
- Open the Settings
- Open Pocket casts
- Toggle Background App Refresh
