Managing App Store Subscriptions

Many apps and services offer subscription plans as a way to pay for additional features (e.g., syncing), access to a service (e.g., Netflix), or to simply provide recurring support to the developer. As it’s a popular payment option, it’s a good idea to regularly check what active subscriptions you have on your account, canceling any you no longer need.

  1. Open Settings
  2. Tap iTunes & App Store > Apple ID
  3. Tap View Apple ID
  4. After your iOS device brings up your account settings, tap Subscriptions

Subscriptions are broken down into “Active” and an “Expired sections. Select an active subscription and tap Cancel Subscription to cancel it. This prevents the subscription from auto-renewing, but you can still use the current subscription until the end of the billing period.

Certain apps and services offer more than one subscription plan, or a discounted annual subscription that is cheaper than paying either weekly or monthly. You can change your subscription type at any time, taking effect from the next billing period. You can also reactivate an expired subscription by selecting it and choosing the plan to subscribe to.
