Taylor Swift Apple Music

Apple Music officially launched today in iOS 8.4 alongside an integrated radio service featuring the 24/7 live streaming station known as Beats 1. Everyone is getting a free three month trial, but once that ends, Apple will start charging the credit card on your Apple ID with either the $9.99/month plan or the $14.99/month family plan (depending on what you selected when first signing up). If you want to cancel your subscription, or just keep it from auto-renewing so you can go month-to-month and manually activate it when you want, below we’ve put together a quick guide on how to do so across platforms:

iTunes:

1. Click on your account (the silhouette icon) in the upper right of iTunes

3. Navigate to Settings and click “Manage” next to subscriptions

4. Click the “Edit” button next to “Apple Music Membership” (only necessary if you have multiple subscriptions). If not you’ll go direct to next step:
