How to cancel your Apple Music subscription

If you want to cancel your Apple Music subscription, there are several ways to do it. Here’s how to unsubscribe using an iPhone, iPad, Android device, PC or Mac. Since its launch in June 2015, Apple Music has become a popular streaming service among Apple fans.

With 10 euros a month for a single account, 5 euros a month for a student plan and 15 euros a month for a family plan up to six people, Apple Music lets you stream more than 50 million songs or listen to playlists created by experts.

You can listen to Apple Music via Windows PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple Watch, Android device, latest Apple TV and even on the Web. And you can try the service for free for three months. It sounds fantastic, but what happens if you don’t want all of this good from God anymore? Maybe it costs too much or you can’t listen as much to justify the cost.

Perhaps another music streaming service has stolen your heart and ears. Whatever the reason, you may want to unsubscribe from Apple Music. Here’s how to cancel your Apple Music subscription.
