Apple announces expanded creator tools for Podcasts Connect

Apple Podcasts follower counts have never been visible, but next month podcasters will be able to see this data on the private Apple Podcasts Connect dashboard.

For whatever reason, follower counts haven’t been visible to creators, though the Apple Podcasts Connect page has shown stats about how many listeners you have, how long people listen before dropping off and how different episodes perform compared to one another.

Some podcasters might notice that their stats on Apple Podcasts Connect are lower than expected, though.
