If you are one of the people who signed up for Apple Music on its June 30 launch day, you will need to make a decision by September 30 whether to cancel your Apple Music subscription, or to start paying for the streaming music service.
For those who opt to cancel, you don’t have to wait until the trial stops working. You can disable auto-renew on your Apple Music subscription right now, effectively ending your access to the service after the trial expires.
Canceling your subscription on an iOS device is is very simple, it takes just few minutes of your time and some knowledge of where to look. Thankfully, that’s what we’re here to show you.
- Open the Music app and tap on your profile icon in the top-left corner of the screen.
- Select View Apple ID.
- Enter your account password when prompted.
- Locate the Subscriptions category and tap on Manage.
- Select the Apple Music Membership.
- Tap on the switch next to Automatic Renewal.
- Confirm you want to cancel by tapping on Turn off.
You can also cancel your membership using iTunes on a Windows or Mac computer.
- Launch iTunes.
- Along the top of the iTunes window you’ll see your name; click on it.
- Select Account info from the dropdown menu.
- Enter your password when prompted.
- Scroll down to the Settings section and click on Manage next to Subscriptions.
- Click Edit next to Apple Music Subscription.
- Confirm your selection.
You will still have access to Apple Music until your trial expires. The same applies should you cancel your subscription after having already paid for a month of service; you’ll still have access until your paid-for month is over.
