for about the last week my podcast app on my iPhone 6+ has been preparing to download episodes but not downloading. Ian on iOS 8.3

This is serious I need to listen to Hansel minutes and history of revolutions!

I have tried shutdown app, clear download, logging out of iTunes etc.

Any suggestions

  • Interesting... Only thing I can think of is firewall blocking?? Try checking that... – TheBro21 Apr 22 '15 at 6:41
  • Unless every wifi hotspot I connect to has suddenly started blocking the same port.... – Toby Allen Apr 22 '15 at 6:49
  • Could you perhaps scrape together some logs and put them on pastebin? It would help greatly. Find logs by plugging device into computer. On mac logs are in: ~/Library/Logs and on Windows: AppData/Roaming/Apple Computer/Logs – TheBro21 Apr 22 '15 at 7:27
  • Logs of what? Where would I get logs – Toby Allen Apr 22 '15 at 7:28
  • Ok, I'll try that. – Toby Allen Apr 22 '15 at 7:45

I had the same problem. I restarted the phone, cancelled the pending downloads and then started the downloads again and it seems to be working. Feel like I'm working with a Microsoft product :(

  • So simple, I kept on thinking I should try that. The old solutions are still the best. – Toby Allen Apr 23 '15 at 10:12
