Apple will automatically charge you after your free Apple Music trial -- here's how to disable it

Apple’s highly anticipated Music streaming service launched Tuesday, and we all get a free three-month trial.

After that, it’s $US9.99 per month, which is billed to the same credit card you store in iTunes for buying apps, music, and other content from Apple.

In the frenzy of signing up for the free trial, you may have missed some small print when you select a plan you want to try. It says Apple will automatically renew your subscription to Apple Music once the three-month free trial is over.

Unless you’re 100% sure you’re going to stick with Apple Music, we suggest turning the auto-renewal feature off in case you forget to cancel the service after the free trial is up.

Here’s how to turn auto-renewal off.

After you've set up Apple Music, tap the little head symbol on the top left of your screen to go to your account.

Tap View Apple ID.

Tap Manage under Subscriptions.

You'll see a list of anything you subscribe to. Tap Your Membership for Apple Music, which will likely be at the top of the list.

Tap the Automatic Renewal switch to the Off position.

Now you won't be automatically charged $9.99 after your three-month trial of Apple Music is over. Just tap Done on the top right on all the popup screens to return to the Apple Music app.
