How to cancel subscriptions on iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple Watch? When you use an Apple device, you have access to a plethora of good subscriptions at the tip of your fingertips. These subscriptions or premium apps provide access to a large array of information and features that are only available behind a paywall.
But be cautious. These services will entice you with free trials. If you do not cancel before the free trial period ends, you will be charged on a recurrent basis until you do. Are you worried yet? Don’t be concerned. I’ll show you how to manage and cancel subscriptions on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac, from free trials to paid subscriptions.

Which subscriptions are you able to cancel?
Subscriptions provide customers with access to a wide range of content, such as music, television shows, and video games, in exchange for a recurring cost, commonly withdrawn monthly, and the ability to unsubscribe at any time.
Some programmes, such as Apple Music and Apple TV+, require a subscription to access the content. On the other side, you may download several apps from the App Store that allow you to access premium features through in-app purchases and subscriptions.
Before I show you how to cancel subscriptions on your iPhone, you should know which subscriptions you can cancel on your device.
