Have you ever signed up for a subscription through Apple and forgotten about it? Or maybe you want to cancel a trial right after signing up so you don’t forget. Whether you’d like to cancel an Apple subscription/free trial on your iPhone or just remember which services or apps you’re paying for, read along below.

It can definitely be convenient to subscribe to recurring services through your Apple ID, but it can also be easy to forget what you’re paying for and a bit tricky to view it all.

Particularly as we’re relying on more apps and services during the coronavirus pandemic, it’s likely your subscriptions and free trials have seen a bump.

Even with subscriptions that offer extended free trials like the new streaming service Quibi or even Apple TV+, you can sign up, cancel right away, and still take advantage of the full trial period.

How to view and cancel Apple subscriptions on iPhone and iPad

Option 1

  1. Head to the App Store, tap your profile picture in the top right corner
  2. Tap Subscriptions
  3. You’ll now see all the Active and Expired subscriptions tied to your Apple ID
  4. Tap on one to cancel, change options, or see more information
  5. You can also toggle on/off the Renewal Receipts options that give you a reminder each month/year a subscription is renewed

When you end a subscription or free trial, Apple will let you know how much longer you can use it (for the already paid/free trial term).
