After the recent release of iOS 6 beta, many people wanted to know, what happened to podcasts?
It seems that Peter Kafka from AllThingsD has some answer. Kafka says that Apple is planning a standalone app for podcasts in iOS 6.
The audiobooks area of the iTunes app appears to be missing from iOS 6. Nobody knows whether it is getting its own app or will it be folded into the iBooks app.
Fold into iBooks app is possible because iBooks is one of the most used and most appreciated apps from Apple.
