Since June 30, Apple Music has been openly available for just anyone with a compatible iOS device to give it a spin thanks to the three-month trial for free. It was the perfect way for the average user to give the service a thorough try and see if it suits their need better than the numerous other music-streaming solutions.
In case you’ve jumped on the Apple Music free trial train immediately or shortly after it became available, be warned that said free trial will expire soon. The earliest adopters will have their trial period ended on October 1.
The thing you need to keep in mind is that, Apple Music works on Auto renewal basis – meanign you’ll be charged directly after your free trial expires. Apple Music won’t prompt you for your conformation.
That won’t be a problem if you are actually digging Apple Music and intend to stay on board for the time being, but if you have forgotten that you have actually used it, then you might be for a bad time when you find out that it has automatically charged you after the expiration of your three-month free trial.
If you are of the second type, fear not. We’ll show you how to unsubscribe from auto renewal.
How to turn off Apple Music’s automatic subscription renewal on iOS
- Open Apple Music
- Tap the Account icon in the upper left corner of the app.
- Then tap View Apple ID.
- Select Manage under the Subscriptions subheader.
- Tap Your Membership above Apple Music Membership.
Turn the slider next to Automatic Renewal to Off.
Just remember: Once you disable Automatic Renewal, you’ll have to return to this screen to activate your subscription when your free trial ends in September, or after your three months are up.
