View and Manage App Store Subscriptions

Many apps and games provide free trials on iPhone as part of luring customers into buying the periodically paid monthly subscriptions. But what if you no longer want to continue with the free trial or the monthly paid service, and want to cancel the app subscription? Here’s how to view and cancel app subscriptions from your iPhone, iPad, or computer.

Apple’s in-app purchasing system has its own perks and drawback. In one case, it lets you try apps and services through its ‘free trial,’ that too, very easily by just authorizing the transaction through Face ID or Touch ID. But more often than not, we find ourselves in a situation when we realize that we have a few too many subscriptions, and are spending money needlessly.

If you find yourself in the same boat, and want to keep a check on your app subscriptions, here’s how you can easily cancel app subscriptions on your iPhone, iPad, and Mac.

How to View and Cancel App Subscriptions on iPhone

Step 4: It will show you all of your active subscriptions under the ‘Active’ tab.

Step 5: Tap on the subscription in the list that you wish to cancel.

If you change your mind and wish to re-subscribe to an app subscription, tap on the subscription you wish to re-subscribe to under the Expired list.

Apple also offers a bundle for its services like Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Fitness+, and more. But does it really save anything? Check out our explainers where we go into detail about Apple One and learn how much do you really save with it?
