Want to get your podcast into Apple Podcasts / iTunes? You'll need to copy your show's RSS feed URL and then head over to http://podcastsconnect.apple.com to submit your feed URL for review and approval.
Don't have an RSS feed for your show yet? Simplecast can help! Learn more about hosting your show on Simplcast here. If your show is already hosted on Simplecast, you'll find your show's RSS feed URL the Show Distribution page in your account (Legacy users should look in the Sharing page).
Visit Apple's Podcasts Connect login page and sign in using your Apple ID.
If you're working on a podcast with a team, or if you don't have an Apple ID yet, you might want to create a unique Apple ID to be associated with your show. You can create a new Apple ID here.
After you log into Podcasts Connect using your Apple ID, you should see a blue "+" button in the top-left corner of the screen.
Click the + button. The next screen you see will have an RSS Feed URL field, which is where you'll enter your show's RSS feed URL.
Paste in your RSS feed URL, click the Validate button, and if Apple says the feed is valid, click the Submit button.
Your show will now enter an approval process and go live on Apple Podcasts sometime in the next 3-5 business days. Apple will send you an email to let you know when your show is approved, or if there are any errors or missing information.
If your feed URL doesn't validate, your feed might be missing some required information. Additionally, you must have at least one published/public episode to be approved by Apple. Don't worry if you receive a rejection email from Apple, you can always update your feed and resubmit.
