Apple has rebranded its iTunes Podcasts directory. It’s now called Apple Podcasts. The change, which also gives publishers a new badge to use, suggests Cupertino could be prepping to make some changes to its podcast platform.
At this year’s Code Conference, Apple’s Eddy Cue suggested that the company was working on new features for podcasts. The rebranding could be a sign that an announcement on those changes is approaching.
Hint, hint: The Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) begins on Monday, June 5.

Personally, I think it’s time for Apple to retire the iTunes name. Today’s announcement is definitely a step in the right direction.
