How to Cancel Apple Music Subscription

How to Cancel Apple Music Subscription

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 life and should be available even if you aren't an Apple Music subscriber, if you did sign up for Apple's music streaming service - you would've been asked to choose between an Individual plan and Family Plan if you did - you will be automatically billed for renewal of your plan the day it expires since Apple already has your credit card details from when you created your iTunes account.

While the trial is free, it's possible you received an alert from your bank that some amount has been charged to your card. This is usually a dummy charge to see if your card is indeed valid. Sometimes, a new transaction on your iTunes account triggers the billing of an old charge - for example we were billed Rs. 120 for an app we bought last week when we started our Apple Music trial, something we've noticed before as well.

It's extremely likely you are enjoying Apple Music right now, but it's possible you'll stop using the service at some point during the free trial because you realise it's not for you or maybe you'll forget about it completely. Even if you stop using the service, you will still be charged the renewal fee the day your trial expires. Thankfully, there's a very simple way to stop this.

Don't worry, if you continue to use Apple Music and find it good value, you can continue to use the service even if you disable the auto-renewal. By disabling this now, you are just giving yourself the safety net should you stop using the service at some point in the future.
