If you don’t cancel your Apple Music free trial auto-renewal by Wednesday, you’ll get charged

How to Cancel Apple Music Trial

Just under three months ago, Apple launched its long-awaited Apple Music service. In order to give customers a chance to test out the service without making an immediate decision of whether or not they wanted to pay for it, Apple offered a three-month free trial that anyone could take advantage of.

But on September 30th, the trial period for early adopters will come to a close.

Shortly after the service launched, we published an article reminding Apple Music subscribers to turn off the service’s automatic renewal so that they wouldn’t suddenly have a surprise charge of $9.99 on their accounts in September.

In two days, anyone who signed up on the first day of availability will be charged if they haven’t taken the time to do so, but don’t fret — there’s still time. It’s also worth noting that the trial period ends three months after the day you signed up, so if you waited until August to give it a try, you’ve still got some time before you need to worry about this.

Here’s what you need to do to turn off automatic renewal (or to check and make sure you remembered to turn it off three months ago when you signed up for the free trial):

  1. From your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, open the Music app and tap on the Profile button on the top-left corner of the screen
  2. Tap “View Apple ID”
  3. Under the Subscriptions header, tap “Manage” (and then tap “Apple Music Membership” if you’ve signed up for multiple subscriptions)
  4. Under the Renewal Options header, slide the Automatic Renewal switch from “ON” to “OFF”
  5. Tap “Done” in the top-right corner of the screen and breathe a sigh of relief

Of course, if you’ve enjoyed your time with Apple Music and want to continue listening to Beats 1 Radio in the future, you can just leave the settings alone and start paying for the service at the end of the month.
