Next Up is a full-featured podcast alarm clock designed to make mornings better.
Wake up to the news, a meditation, a comedy show, or the gentle voice of LeVar Burton reading you a new short story – use any of the more than 750,000 podcasts available on the Apple Podcasts platform.
Next Up syncs with the podcasts you subscribe to and download in the native Podcasts app, so there's no need to manage them in more than one place. Set the time you want to get up and enjoy a more engaging start to the day.
Skip episodes you’ve already heard, change the snooze duration, set the volume, skip the intro ads and more – Next Up lets you customize every alarm. Even repeat alarms on specific days of the week for podcasts that are released on a regular schedule.
Wake up to the newest episodes for timely content like news, sports, or current events. Or choose to start from the beginning with newly discovered stand-alone or serial podcasts.
When the alarm starts playing, you can snooze it for a few, stop the playback altogether, or seamlessly continue listening from the Music app with options available in the lock screen and control center to pause, play, or skip back or forward.*
For a more complete sleep experience, Next Up now includes a built-in white noise generator with a variety of sound choices.
