Here's how you can manage or cancel service in-app subscriptions on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch in a few easy steps.
As we keep on using our iPhones, iPads or iPod touches, we will eventually stumble upon some golden content that is bound to keep us busy in one way or the other. Such as a subscription to a music service, or maybe some Netflix or Hulu to pass the time. But there will come a point during usage where you might change your mind and would want to cancel the subscription of a particular service, provided that you signed up for it using your on-file iTunes credit card, or maybe just your App Store credit.
For a lot of people, it's a tough task to follow, because managing subscriptions or just cancelling them can be a huge pain in the rear on iOS, given the fact that the option for it is hidden in a place where it's least accessible for a lot of people. But fret not, we'll help you in today's guide and show you how you can manage your in-app subscriptions as well as cancel them if the need arises.
