Skip Ahead & Rewind Podcasts in iOS
You can easily skip ahead and rewind in large blocks while listening to podcasts in iOS. This is useful if you either want to listen to a sequence again, or jump ahead through bumper music, commercials, or boring segments, and it works with just a tap.
- While playing a podcast in either Podcasts app or Music app in iOS, tap the rewind or fast forward buttons with numbers in the middle
Everything is the same whether you are on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod, and this works both in the Podcasts app and when playing podcasts through the Music app, though each app gives you slightly different options. In Podcasts app, you can jump back and rewind 10 seconds at a time, and skip ahead 30 seconds at a time. In Music app, you can both skip ahead and rewind in 15 second blocks. Why each app is different is unclear, but both apps also support the tap-and-hold fast forward and rewind option as well.
