When you subscribe to an Apple Music individual, student or family plan, or take advantage of Apple's free ‌Apple Music‌ trial, your subscription automatically renews every month or every year using the payment information you used when your first signed up to the service.

How to Cancel Apple Music

  1. Launch the Music app on iPhone or iPad, or open iTunes on a Mac or PC.
