How to manage and cancel Apple subscriptions

It seems that The tendency to move to a subscription model, instead of a single payment, is the trend among developers. Whether you are the one who pisses off this change or those who follow the philosophy of “Keep Calm & Subscribe”, Surely you have thought twice before paying.

That phrase that says "it will be renewed automatically" makes us all wonder the same thing: Where do I cancel this subscription? So you do not ask more, here is how to manage and cancel subscriptions from your Apple devices.

On iOS

  • Go to Settings.
  • Click on your first name (Apple ID).
  • Go to iTunes Store and App Store.
  • Click on your Apple ID (in blue).
  • Now, "See Apple ID”(Asks for your password).
  • Go to "Subscriptions"

There you have all the subscriptions, active and expired. By clicking on each one, you will be able to see all the information (how often it is charged, how much it is charged), etc., as well as cancel the subscription or change the subscription model if there are different forms (monthly or annual, for example).

Apple makes it quite clear with phrases like "even if you cancel the subscription now, you can continue to access it until …", so Do not hesitate to cancel any subscription you do not want to renew since you can. No need to wait for the last day.

Still, I would like to make it clear that “Active” does not mean that the subscription will be renewed. "Active" means that you can continue to use it, regardless of whether it will be renewed at the end or not. Within each subscription you can see whether or not you have renewal activated or if, on the contrary, it will expire and asks you to choose an option to subscribe again.

In macOS

  • Opens iTunes.
  • In the menu bar, go to “Account"
  • Press “See my account …"
  • Below at all, in Settings, you will see “Subscriptions"With the number of subscriptions and, on the right,"Manage"

You will also see subscriptions, active and past, and the same options as in iOS.

On tvOS

On Apple TV you won't find all the subscriptions, but if you expect from an Apple TV (streaming video services, Apple Music, etc.).

  • Go to Settings.
  • Then go to Accounts.
  • Below you will see “Manage Subscriptions".
