How Do I Manage Subscriptions on My PC?

Many apps and services require a subscription to continue working, and it can be hard to remember which ones you have. That’s why it’s important to keep track of which subscriptions you have and cancel those you don’t need.

Fortunately, Apple makes it easy to manage your subscriptions through your Apple ID, which is used for everything from the App Store to Apple Music. It’s also easy to cancel a subscription with just a few clicks, and the steps are straightforward on iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV.

How to Manage Subscriptions through the App Store

On an iPhone, iPad, or Mac, open the App Store app by clicking on its icon in the upper-right corner. Select your profile icon to pull up a list of your active and expired subscriptions. Tap on any one to review its details, price, and cancellation or renewal information.

How to Cancel a Subscription through iTunes on Your PC

On your Mac, launch System Preferences > iTunes and sign in with your Apple ID. In the Settings section, click Manage next to Subscriptions.

You’ll see a list of your subscriptions, including those you’ve bought or canceled through Apple and those purchased from third-party app developers. This includes everything from iCloud storage to Apple Music and iCloud photo backup.

How to Cancel Trial Subscriptions on Your Mac

How to Cancel a Storage Subscription on Your Mac

If you’re using macOS Catalina or later, you can check how much storage space you’re getting from iCloud by opening the iCloud Settings app and tapping your name at the top of the screen. This will display your monthly storage usage and how much you’re paying for iCloud storage, and you can upgrade or downgrade your subscriptions here.

How to Cancel a Membership on Your Apple TV

If your Apple TV is running iOS 10, you can also cancel an iTunes subscription by going to Settings > Accounts and selecting the membership you want to cancel. You can also turn off Automatic Renewal, which can help you save money and avoid having a subscription automatically renew.

While it’s always a good idea to keep track of subscriptions that you may be paying for, it’s also important to remember that trial subscriptions don’t stop working when they expire. You can still use them for a limited time, but they’ll charge you at the end of the trial period unless you cancel them.
