In this paper, we study some properties of the generalized Apostol-type polynomials (see (Luo and Srivastava in Appl. Math. Comput. 217:5702-5728, 2011)), including the recurrence relations, the differential equations and some other connected problems, which extend some known results. We also deduce some properties of the generalized Apostol-Euler polynomials, the generalized Apostol-Bernoulli polynomials, and Apostol-Genocchi polynomials of high order.
