How to Cancel Subscriptions on iPhone

Find out how to cancel subscriptions that you bought through the App Store. Apple also allows you to cancel Apple TV+, Apple News+, Apple Fitness+, and other subscriptions.

You can cancel a subscription on your iPhone or iPad in the Settings app, or on your Mac in the App Store.

What Are Apple Subscriptions and How Do They Work?

Because it provides a number of benefits to both app developers and customers, the subscription business model has gained a lot of traction in recent years.

Developers prefer to charge customers a recurring fee for access to a product or service at regular intervals because it provides them with a reliable, consistent revenue stream. As a result, developers are more confident in their ability to scale their business, add new features, and shift their focus from customer acquisition to customer retention.

Customers, on the other hand, prefer the subscription business model because it allows them to access a large amount of content for a low monthly fee with the option to cancel at any time. Customers no longer have to worry about upgrades and new versions thanks to the subscription business model, as they are included in the subscription and do not require additional purchases.

Given the numerous advantages that the subscription business model provides to both app developers and customers, it’s no surprise that Apple’s App Store is brimming with apps that offer in-app subscriptions. Some apps and services, such as Apple News+, require a subscription in order to function, while others offer subscriptions in order to unlock premium features.
