First things first! In order to find your active subscriptions, go to your home screen. Your home screen is the main screen on your iPhone where all the apps are at. Once you're on the home screen try to following steps:
- Search for your settings app. It's the one with the gear icon. Oftentimes, it is in the "utilities" folder.
- Open the settings app.
Now that you have your settings app open, you need to open up your Apple ID settings page. To do this try the following:
- Click the tab where it says your name or nickname. It will have your profile image to the left.
There are a ton of settings on your Apple ID settings page. Make sure to choose the correct setting.
- Click "subscriptions." In payment and shipping, you can edit your card and billing address, but you cannot edit your subscriptions there.
Here is where you need to make some decisions. Check out which subscriptions are "active" and "expired." The "active" subscriptions are the ones that you are currently paying on or have upcoming billing dates. Free trials are also considered active subscriptions, even if the billing date is far off. If you don't cancel a subscription over 24 hours before the billing date, it will charge you. If you cancel within 24 hours of the billing date, you will still be charged per Apple's support site.
- Click the subscription you want to cancel.
If it shows a billing date that corresponds to your recent charge, that's the one you want to choose.
Here you can see the cost, if the subscription is monthly or weekly, and the subscription options. There may be different options than you can see in the screenshot above. To cancel your subscription, follow these steps:
- Click "cancel subscription," "cancel renewal," or "cancel free trial."
The options you will have are dependent on that app and/or subscription type.
You may have options to change the type of subscription you have. For example, if you have different, cheaper payment options, you can choose not the cancel the subscription, and change the subscription/payment type to a monthly or yearly or less-expensive option instead.
Sometimes, when you are busy or out and about and your iPhone starts ringing, you don't want to pick it up, but you know it might be so-and-so with that important call you've been waiting on.
