Canceling Apple Music: Don’t Miss Out on the Free Trial

Canceling Apple Music: Don’t Miss Out on the Free Trial

Let’s talk about canceling Apple Music before your free trial runs out. It’s important to make sure you don’t get charged if you decide it’s not for you. Don’t worry, I’ll guide you through the process.

First things first, go to your account settings. You can find this by clicking on your profile picture in the top corner. Then, go to the Subscriptions tab.

Now, you’ll see a list of all your subscriptions. Look for Apple Music and click on it. You might need to scroll down a bit.

Once you’re on the Apple Music page, you’ll find an option to cancel your subscription. Just click on that and follow the prompts. It’s pretty straightforward.

Remember, you only have until the end of your free trial to cancel without getting charged. So, keep an eye on that expiration date. If you wait too long, you might miss the window and end up with an unwanted charge.

Finally, after you cancel, make sure to double-check your subscriptions to ensure it’s no longer active. You don’t want any surprises on your bill.

That’s it! You’re now all set to cancel Apple Music before the free trial ends. If you decide to give it another go in the future, you can always sign up again. But for now, enjoy exploring other options!

How to Cancel Apple Music Before the Free Trial Ends

Hey there, let’s talk about Apple Music and how to cancel your free trial. Back in June 2015, Apple Music was introduced with a bang. They offered a rather controversial 3-month free trial to get people on board. Many Apple users jumped at the chance to try it out, despite the initial controversy around payment of royalties. In the end, Apple decided to continue offering the free trial.

Now, it may seem like old news compared to Spotify and Amazon Music, but Apple Music still has a strong fanbase, with over 60 million subscribers as of July 2019. To keep up with the competition, Apple has recently extended the free trial for students from 3 months to 6 months. After that, students pay a reduced fee of $4.99 per month instead of the regular $9.99.

If you’re currently on an Apple Music free trial and you don’t think it’s worth the regular price, you’ll need to cancel before the third month (or the sixth month if you’re a student) to avoid any charges. Let me walk you through the process:

Cancel Apple Music via iTunes

If you’re using a Mac or PC, make sure you have iTunes version 12.2 or higher. Open the app and sign in with your Apple ID. Click on your account name in the iTunes toolbar and select Account Info from the drop-down menu. Enter your account password when asked.

Scroll down to the bottom of the Account Info page until you see the “Settings” section. Look for Subscriptions and click on Manage. You’ll find a list of all your subscriptions, including Apple Music. Click on Edit.

Here, you’ll see the details of your Apple Music membership, like whether you’re on the Individual or Family plan. The “Your Subscription” row shows your next billing date. To cancel your free trial, find “Automatic Renewal” and turn it Off. Confirm your choice, and voila! Your subscription is canceled.

You’ll be taken back to the “Your Membership” page, where you’ll notice the auto-renewal options are gone. That means you’ve successfully canceled your subscription. Easy peasy!

I want to let you know that you can continue using and enjoying Apple Music until September 30th, 2015. However, after that date, you won’t have access to the service anymore and you won’t be charged the monthly fee.

If you ever decide to subscribe to Apple Music again after the free trial period ends, simply follow these steps: Go to iTunes > Account Info > Subscriptions > Manage > Apple Music Membership > Edit and click on “Subscribe” next to either the Individual or Family plans, depending on your preference. The great thing about Apple Music is that there are no contracts or membership terms, so you can easily subscribe and cancel on a monthly basis going forward.

How to Cancel Apple Music on iOS

You can also cancel your Apple Music subscription directly on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, without needing to use iTunes on a Mac or PC. Here’s how: Go to Settings > App and iTunes Stores and tap on your Apple ID at the top of the menu. If the Apple ID shown is not the one associated with your Apple Music free trial, tap on Sign Out and then log in with the correct Apple ID. Tap on View Apple ID and enter your password when prompted.

On the Account Settings page, scroll down and find “Subscriptions” and tap on Manage. You will see an entry for “Your Membership” for Apple Music at the top. Tap on it to access your Apple Music subscription options.

Similar to the process on iTunes, if you’re reading this before September 30th, your subscription should be listed as a Free Trial. To cancel your Apple Music membership before the trial period ends, simply tap the toggle next to “Automatic Renewal” to turn it Off (white). You’ll be asked to confirm your choice, so tap Turn Off to complete the process.

Just like on iTunes, you can come back to this page in the future if you want to subscribe again to either the Individual or Family plans and pay on a monthly basis. And if you ever wish to cancel Apple Music again, just follow these same steps.
