How to Cancel Your Apple Music Subscription

Here’s a guide on how to cancel your Apple Music subscription before the end of the free trial period, so you won’t be charged in case you do not wish to continue using the service. Apple Music is a streaming service that competes with Spotify, Rdio and Pandora and is based on Beats Music by Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine. All iOS users had 3 months of free trial to give Apple Music a try. If you don’t disable the automatic renewal of your subscription, your account will be charged the monthly fee for individual usage or family usage. The height of the fee depends on your region and location.

Apple Music is billed on a monthly basis and can be cancelled in the same timeframe, although you need to make your decision at least 24 hours before the due date for renewal. To cancel your subscription but continue using it until the trial period runs out, follow the steps below.

How to disable automatic renewal and cancel your Apple Music subscription

Apple Music > For You > Account > Manage > Automatic Renewal 

You will only need your iPhone for this guide.

Open up the “Apple Music” app to begin. Tap the “For You” tab with the little heart icon, then select your Account by tapping the icon in the top left. Scroll down a bit until you see “Manage” and tap the button, then disable the toggle labeled “Automatic Renewal” and confirm by tapping “Turn Off”. The automatic renewal of your subscription is now cancelled.

You will be able to continue listening to Apple Music for free until your free trial runs out. Should you change your mind: The option to select one of the paid plans will still be there. Simply follow the same path as above and select one of the renewal options.
