Whether you’re a new or an old user of the app, chances are you’ll have subscribed to some apps on the App Store. If you’ve just signed up for your Apple account or have been using your Mac for some time now, then it’s safe to say that you’ve already subscribed to some apps. Subscriptions are basically paid services that offer features for a certain period of time.

How to Cancel Apple Subscriptions on Mac

Depending on which subscription service you subscribe to, it could either be for a whole year or a specific period of time. The difference between both subscription options is similar to the one between payment plans and subscriptions — you get access to more services with a payment plan but there is no limit to how many times you can renew it. Here we tell you how to cancel subscriptions on your iPhone and Mac.

Apple subscriptions for iOS devices

Apple subscriptions are available for a wide variety of services, including apps like the App Store, iCloud, iMessage, and more. If you’ve signed up for one of these subscriptions or would like to cancel them, here’s what you need to do. If you’re interested in seeing how many subscriptions you currently have active on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac, enter your Apple ID account information in the Settings app. From there, you can also see how much time you’ve got left on your various subscriptions.

Apple subscriptions for Mac

If you’re an Apple user with a Mac, you know how useful it is to have a subscription like iCloud, the Mac App Store, or Apple Music. It’s often convenient to have these subscriptions active on your Mac, but you can also choose to turn them off at any time. To do this, go to the Apple menu and select System Preferences. Then, go to the iCloud preference pane and uncheck the boxes beside the services you don’t want to have on your Mac.

Apple Subscriptions You Don’t Know About

Apple may be a well-known brand when it comes to mobile devices, but it’s less well known for the software it makes for the Mac. You can actually subscribe to a few different Mac services that most people have no idea about. A subscription to Apple’s Developer Program gives you access to resources and tools that let you make better apps. A subscription to Apple’s Final Cut Pro X licensing lets you use the program’s editing features, while a subscription to Apple’s Motion 5 animation app lets you animate your videos.

Cancel an Apple subscription on your iPhone

If you’re not happy with the services you’ve subscribed to on your iPhone, you can always choose to cancel your subscriptions. Luckily, this is very easy to do. Open the Settings app and go to the Subscriptions tab. Scroll down and you’ll find a list of all your active subscriptions. Tap each one, which will open a window where you have the option to cancel it.

Cancel an Apple subscription on your iPad

If you want to cancel a subscription on your iPad, all you have to do is head over to the Settings app, tap your name, and then tap Subscriptions. Here you can see an overview of all the subscriptions you have active on your iPad, and make changes accordingly. If you want to cancel a subscription, tap the “x” beside it. As with the iPhone, you can also see the remaining time for the subscription here.


Apple subscriptions are great for those who want to get the best out of their apps in a limited timeframe. If you’ve signed up for a subscription on your iPhone or Mac, you can cancel it at any time. Make sure you know what subscription you have before deciding to cancel it though. 

Once you know what you’re cancelling, it’s easy to do so. We hope this article helped you cancel your subscriptions on your iPhone and Mac. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to use the section below!
