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, or start back up with one that previously expired. Follow along for how to view iPhone subscriptions as well as cancel and renew them.

Update: Follow along for how to fix the Apple One cancelation bug and other related issues.

Update 11/30: Many early Apple One subscribers have seen glitches and issues with the bundle plan at the end of the first free month. You may need to check if your plan was canceled by Apple automatically and re-subscribe manually. You may also want to check you’re not being billed for services that should be included with Apple One like Apple Music, Arcade, TV+ etc. See more details 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 Apple TV+, you can often sign up, cancel right away, and still take advantage of the full trial period.
