How To Cancel Subscriptions on iPhone & iPad

Whether you like it or not, most iOS and Mac software is gravitating to a Subscription model. This has led me to re-evaluate some of my software; “do I really need this software package or not?” App subscriptions are tied into the App Store and iTunes. If you would like to cancel or just review your subscriptions there is an easy way to do it on your iPhone or iPad.

Subscriptions

I am going to use my iPhone 8 to demonstrate this process. To begin this App review process tap on the App Store:

Begin Review in the App Store
Begin Review in the App Store

When you are in the App Store front page, just tap on your Apple ID photo in the upper right corner of the window:

Tap on the Photo ID
Tap on the Photo ID

Then, tap on Manage Subscriptions to see your list of Apps:

Tap on Manage Subscriptions
Tap on Manage Subscriptions

Here are my subscriptions. I am going to cancel Nomorobo because I started using the Malwarebytes iPhone App instead:

Select an App to review or cancel
Select an App to review or cancel

When you tap on an App you are taken to this screen:

Tap on Cancel Subscription and you are good to go.
Tap on Cancel Subscription and you are good to go.

When you tap Cancel Subscription you are presented with some type of confirmation screen:

Confirm your cancellation
Confirm your cancellation

However you have your phone or iPad setup is how you would confirm this cancellation. And, that is all there is to it.

Conclusion

If you need to review or cancel a subscription it is relatively easy to do on your iPhone or iPad, much easier than going into the iTunes App Store for sure.
