How to Cancel Subscriptions on iPhone or iPad (2018)


Hey everyone. I’m Max Dalton, and in this video I’m going
to talk through how to cancel subscriptions on your Apple iPhone or iPad. Apple makes it convenient to subscribe to
its own services (such as Apple Music and Apple News), and the services of other companies
operating on Apple’s platform (such as Netflix, HBO, Washington Post, and Hulu). If you decide you no longer want to subscribe
to a service where you manage the subscription through Apple, you can cancel that subscription
on your iPhone or iPad with a few quick taps. And now let’s walk through the steps to cancel
a subscription on your iPhone or iPad. Step 1. Tap the “Settings” app on your Apple device’s
home screen. The Settings screen is displayed. Step 2. Select the row at the top of the Settings
screen displaying your Apple ID profile picture and account name. You’ll see Apple ID, iCloud, iTunes & App
Store beneath your account name. The Apple ID screen appears. Step 3. Choose “iTunes & App Store” in the on-screen
menu. The iTunes & App Stores screen is displayed. Step 4. Tap “Apple ID” at the top of the screen. The email associated with your account will
be displayed in blue text next to Apple ID. An Apple ID dialog box will be displayed in
the center of the screen. Step 5. Tap “View Apple ID.” The Account Settings screen will be displayed
on your iPhone or iPad screen. Step 6. Move down the on-screen menu to locate Subscriptions,
and then tap “Subscriptions.” A list of subscriptions you can manage through
your Apple ID appear on the screen. Step 7. Tap the subscription you want to cancel. An information screen associated with that
subscription appears. The information screen will present a list
of available options associated with your subscription, such as cancelling or renewing
that subscription. Available options will vary from subscription
to subscription, but you should either see the equivalent of a button to cancel the subscription,
or an obvious path that will get you to a location where you can cancel your subscription. In this example, I’m going to cancel my TubeBuddy
app trial. Step 8. Tap the “Cancel Subscription” button (or its
equivalent) after locating it. In this example, I’ll tap “Cancel Trial.” A Confirm Cancellation dialog box appears. This dialog box will likely contain a message
letting you know how long you’ll have access to this service after you cancel. Step 9. Tap “Confirm” in the dialog box. The dialog box will disappear and you’ll be
returned to the information screen for that specific subscription, which will likely present
you with a list of options for resubscribing to that particular service. After making any changes you can tap the “Back”
arrow in the upper left corner of the screen to navigate back to the list of subscriptions
associated with your Apple ID, or you can press the “Home” button to navigate back to
your iPhone or iPad home screen. Congratulations! You now know how to cancel subscriptions managed
through your Apple account on your iPhone or iPad. Thanks for watching. Click the video link on the right side of

  1. I subscribed to an app and then I uninstalled it from my mobile. However, the subcription charges were deducted every month for almost an year. I was stupid and lazy enough for not being able to figure out how to cancel the subscription. But thanks to this video. You owe a KFC burger to me now 🙂

  2. My dad asked me what cost $60 and I was like I don’t know. Then I went on my phone not remembering anything. Sooo I went to type in how to see how you can cancel subscriptions. Annndd see a whole list of subscriptions that have charged me already. IM SO SORRY DAD! I forgot. 😩. I’m so dumb!😕🤓

  3. Omg tysm :3 I was playing lure and I put my thumb on the button to exit and it did the free trile 😵

  4. I CANNOT THANK YOU ENOUGH! I REALLY THOUGHT IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE ON IPAD BUT I HAD TO PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT IVE HEARD A LITTLE CLOSER; IT SAVED MY LIFE!!!

  5. Thanks my little brother bought a subscription trial for a game and I got mad and watched this video and it worked yay

  6. Hi guys, anybody has an idea how to cancel an old subscription (paying) when you have a NEW appleID? And the subscription is linked to the OLD appleID. To the old appleID I dont have a password anymore. It seems like I have to pay until I am dead..
    Thnkns Philipp

  7. What if you have new apple ID and the app you purchase its not there because its in the old apple ID and cant restore it coz you forgot the old apple ID? Any suggestions what to do? Or there’s another way to stop the subscription without using the apple ID? Thanks in advance 🙂

  8. Thank you Max that was great and really helped me to sort my subscription with iTunes love your videos you make everything easy

  9. Wait. So if I don’t have a subscription yet will the subscription option be in my settings or will I have to have a subscription first in order to have that choice

  10. Got this app that has 3 day free trial and want to cancel after a day
    I did the instructions but it still says that’s it’s active
    But I did press the cancel button
    Should I have received and email about cancellation??

  11. Oh Damn! That was so close!
    My father almost caught me ;-;
    It was good he didn’t receive da message
    I used his credit card TwT

  12. I did this but when I go to the app puffin and check my billing in roblox, it still says cancel renewal and it leads me to manage subscriptions even though I canceled it already but it still says cancel renewal (I use iOS)

  13. Didn’t work on my iPhone. No cancel button came up and nothing to go further. Seems like Apple have made it difficult to cancel subs once made. Been doing all sorts but can’t find how to get a sub cancelled 😡

  14. What if when I do all the steps it doesn’t say subscriptions above purchase history? it’s like that option doesn’t even exist
