How to cancel Apple Music subscription

Signing up for Apple Music is a cinch. In the newest version of iTunes, released on June 30, it’s easy to add a subscription in just a few minutes.

Apple Music provides with various music songs,  after you subscribe it, you can play and free download all the music files as you like. But how to cancel the subscription, if you don’t like it.

Once you’re signed up, your subscription will auto-renew every month unless you elect to cancel it before the next billing cycle begins.

Cancel Subscriptions on iTunes for the Desktop

If you’re using iTunes on a desktop computer, then to cancel your Apple Music or any other self-renewing subscription, first click your account at the top of the iTunes window, then click “Account Info”.

You will need to enter your Apple ID password to access your Account Info. Once you’re on your account information page, scroll down to Settings, and click “Manage” next to Subscriptions.

Now you see all your various subscriptions to which you are or have been subscribed. Click “Edit” next to your Apple Music membership.

If there are any renewal options, you can review those and make changes. For example here we can switch to a Family plan for $14.99 per month. To cancel your Apple Music subscription however, click “Off” next to Automatic Renewal.

When you’re ready, click “Done” and when your free Apple Music trial runs out your subscription will be canceled and you will not be billed.

Canceling Subscription on an iOS Device

On any iOS device such as an iPad or iPhone, open the Settings and tap “iTunes & App Store”, then tap your Apple ID.

Next tap “View Apple ID” on the resulting pop up dialog and then enter your password to access your account information.

Under the Subscriptions heading click “Manage”.

Now you’ll see all your subscriptions listed and their current status, next tap the subscription you want to cancel.

Again, just as on iTunes, you’ll see your subscription details and be able to change your renewal options. Next to “Automatic Renewal” you will want to tap the button to “Off” to cancel your subscription.

When you’re finished, tap “Done” to exit and you will not be billed for Apple Music (or whatever subscription you’re canceling) after the free trial ends.

Whether or not you’re an Apple Music believer is going to largely depend upon your allegiance to existing streaming services as well whether you even own an Apple device.

If you use Android, you’re going to have to wait a while for the app to arrive for your device, which basically means that if you sign up for the free trial right now, you’re really just wasting it if you like to take your streaming music on the go with you.

On the other hand, if you’ve already decided to check it out, then enjoy your free three months and know that you can cancel anytime using the methods described above. If you have any comments or questions you would like to share with us, please leave your feedback in our discussion forum.

Apple Music’s ‘Carpool Karaoke’ will premiere on August 8

Apple Music’s karaoke series has a release date: August 8.

Following the premiere, Apple says new episodes of Carpool Karaoke: The Series will be released every Tuesday. The show was first announced last year, spinning out of the carpool karaoke segments on James Corden’s Late Late Show.

Corden will also be part of the new show as a creator and executive producer, and he’ll appear in segments with Will Smith and LeBron James. However, it sounds like there will be plenty of Corden-less episodes, too, pairing up celebrities Shakira and Trevor Noah, as well as Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams, who play Sansa and Arya Stark on Game of Thrones. There will even be a segment focused on “Miley, Noah, Billy Ray and the entire Cyrus family.”

Apple had initially said the show would be released in April, before pushing things back.

Earlier this year, Spike’s Caraoke Showdown seems to have come and gone without anyone noticing — but after all, Corden’s version is the one that everyone recognizes, and it’s the one that delivered the biggest YouTube video of 2016.

Even if you’re not a big fan of Corden or the carpool karaoke concept (or if you like both fine, thank you very much, but think the idea is a little too thin to justify a full series ), the show is worth tracking as Apple Music’s first move into original video content, along with the Planet of the Apps reality show.

About Carpool Karaoke

Carpool Karaoke is a recurring segment on The Late Late Show with James Corden in which James Corden, the host of the show, invites famous musical guests to sing along to their songs with him whilst he is driving on a planned route usually in Los Angeles, under the pretense of needing to get to work and preferring to use the high-occupancy vehicle lane.

Since May 2017 an Israeli version has been broadcast on the channel KAN 11.
