On 30th of June, Apple updated its OS to iOS 8.4 tagging in its well hyped Music Streaming Service called Apple Music. Presently, Apple Music is in heat considering its wide range of sub-services including the Beats1 radio station. Although the first three months are free for trial. the service comes with a monthly charge of $9.99 for individual and $14.99 collectively for up to six members.

To fit the three month trial period, you would need to have a credit card associated with your Apple ID. The credit card association is necessary as the subscription would not be possible without it, even when you’re just opting the free trial period. So you will choose your desired billing plan/subscription when you activate the free trial and the billing would begin as soon as the trial ends.

Disable Apple Music Auto Renewal Subscription

If you are a calculated person but forgets a lot, you wouldn’t want Apple to auto-renew your subscription at every month start. Its best if you disable the automatic renewal of Apple Music Subscription, so you can turn it back on when you need the music service or pay the bill whenever you want to.

(If you do not have a credit card associated with your Apple ID, the subscription heading would be absent). Now you are in your Apple Music subscription menu. The menu will display all information associated to your Apple Music’s subscription.

Step 3:

In the Apple Music subscription menu, you will see the Automatic Renewal option. Toggle it to ‘Off’ and your auto renewal subscription will be disabled. Turn it back ‘On’ if you want to subscribe again automatically. Thats it to disable the auto renewal of subscription.
