How to cancel a subscription to Apple Music


Apple Music launched on Tuesday and everyone is getting a free 3-month trial to enjoy the service and see if it works for them. While Beats 1 Radio is free for lifetime and should be available even if you’re not an Apple Music subscriber, if you’ve signed up for Apple’s music streaming service – you’ll have to choose between the Individual plan and the Family plan. If you did – you will automatically be billed to renew your plan on the day your plan expires because Apple already has your credit card details when you added your iTunes account created.

While the trial is free, you may have received an alert from your bank that some amount has been charged to your card. This is usually a dummy fee to check whether your card is actually valid or not. Sometimes, a new transaction on your iTunes account triggers billing of old charges – for example we have to pay Rs. 120 for an app we bought last week when we started our Apple Music trial, something we’ve seen before.

It’s quite possible that you’re enjoying Apple Music right now, but it’s possible that you’ll stop using the service at some point during the free trial because you find out it’s not for you or maybe you Will completely forget about it. Even if you stop using the Service, you will still be charged a renewal fee on the day your trial expires. Thankfully, there is a very easy way to prevent this.
