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 will trigger a Background App Refresh.
To enable notifications
- Open the main menu by swiping right from the left edge of your screen
- Toggle Enabled to on.
To check that Background App Refresh is on
- Opening the Settings app
- Background App Refresh
