Some of the programs we use on our desktop or laptop computers have subscription services associated with them. An example is Evernote Premium.
Perhaps you signed up for premium service on your iPhone, and subsequently began using the product on your laptop or desktop computer. Now, almost a year later, you’re cutting back on some of the many unnecessary monthly and annual fees that can really add up to a lot. So, you’re wondering how to cancel a subscription.
You can follow these steps to review and cancel subscription services being paid through Apple iTunes. It’s a great way to discover hidden ongoing payments you may have long forgotten about. These instructions assume you have the latest iOS software update on your device and you’ve signed into your iCloud account on your iPhone or iPad.
- On your iPhone or iPad, go to Settings.
- At the top, tap on your name to access Apple ID, iCloud, iTunes & App Store.
- Tap on iTunes & App Store.
- Tap on your Apple ID displayed at the top of the screen.
- Choose View Apple ID from the pop-up list.
- Tap on Subscriptions (you may need to scroll down).
You will have now discovered a treasure trove of monthly and annual subscriptions you’ve been paying perhaps without knowing. Tap on any subscription for more information or to cancel.
Be careful to only cancel subscriptions you’re sure you don’t need. You don’t want to inadvertently cancel something and then later realize that you were using some feature or enhancement provided by the subscription.
