How to stop Apple Music auto renewal

Apple has launched its much anticipated Apple Music service. The service is available for a 3-month introductory free trial to anyone who wants to try it out. The free trial period serves as an incentive for users of rival music services like Spotify and Rhapsody to consider an allegiance change. Apple Music subscribers have access to over 30 million songs. That substantial music library is accompanied by access to Beats 1, a 24/7 live radio broadcast from DJs stationed in London, New York and Los Angeles, delivered to subscribers and non-subscribers alike. Also introduced with the launch is Connect, a new social media platform that allows music artists to interact directly with fans.

An Apple ID is required to subscribe to Apple Music. The music service is accessed through iTunes on your Mac or PC (requires iTunes v12.2 and greater), or via the Music app on your iOS device (requires iOS 8.4 and greater). Although the trial is free, music fans who sign up for the Apple Music service are required to select a renewal option as part of the sign-up process. An Individual plan is $9.99 per month, and the Family plan is $14.99 per month. After the 3-month free trial is over, Apple Music subscriptions will automatically renew at the selected plan rate.

If you’d rather nip that renewal at the bud now before you forget, here’s how to stop Apple Music auto renewal from the Music app on your iPhone or iPad, and from iTunes:
