We recommend having a new Apple ID created specifically for your podcast.
Create an Apple ID: If you don't already have an Apple ID, you'll need to create one to submit your podcast. Go to the Apple ID website and follow the instructions to create an account. You can create an Apple ID here.

Once your Apple ID is created, you will also need to activate your Apple ID by logging into iTunes with your new Apple ID. To fully activate the account, you will answer a few questions and fill out some information specific to you.

First, log in to Apple Podcasts Connect: Go to the Apple Podcasts Connect website and log in with your Apple ID.

Next, add your podcast: Click the "New Show" button and paste your RSS feed.

Choose the "Show Type" - you will choose the option to add a show with an RSS feed.

Click "Next" and then paste your RSS Feed can click "Add"

For shows subscribed to Resonate Hosting, an RSS feed is unlocked. Follow these steps to copy the RSS feed.

  1. Login to Resonate.

  2. On the home screen, you should see an "RSS Feed" link.

  3. Tap that link and your show's RSS Feed will open in a new tab.

  4. Copy the link in the URL bar.

While you wait for your show to process, you can fill out the remaining information - most notably:
- Set the Content Rights and confirm that your show has rights to any third-party content it may contain.
- Provide contact information for the show, so we can reach someone if there’s an issue.

From here it will take Apple typically 20-30 min to process your podcast. You will see that the podcast is labeled as a "Draft"

After about 15-20 you should be able to refresh your page and click "Publish"

Your RSS feed will be validated before it’s sent to Apple. If there’s an issue, a warning message will appear and must be resolved before you can publish the show. Learn more about validation warnings.

Once you have submitted your podcast, the final step is to wait for approval: It can take up to 10 business days for Apple to approve your podcast. Once approved, your podcast should be available on Apple Podcasts and other platforms that use the Apple Podcasts directory.

Note that Apple may reject your podcast if it doesn't meet their guidelines. If this happens, you'll need to address the issues and resubmit your podcast for review.

If you are having issues you can reach out to apple support:
