How To Disable Apple Music’s Auto-Renewal

Apple Music was launched on Tuesday, and every user will be getting a free three-month trial to enjoy the service. If you have signed up for Apple’s music streaming service, then you will have also been asked to select between an individual plan and family plan. However, there’s a small catch that you need to know here, and that is that Apple will automatically bill you for the fourth month on the day your plan expires. Apple already has your credit card details, and thus billing won’t be that hard.

It is likely that you enjoy the service right now, but it is possible that in the future you might think this service is not for you, or you might even forget about it during the trial period. However, even if you stop using it, Apple will still charge the renewal fees on the day your free plan expires. Here’s how to keep Apple from auto-renewing your Apple Music service.

Step 4: Scroll down a little, and then tap on “Manage” under Subscriptions.
