How to stop Apple from automatically charging you

How to stop Apple from automatically charging you
Apple

Apple recently launched Music, its brand new streaming platform that  gives users access to over 30 million songs, exclusive content, videos and more. The service costs $9.99 each month, but Apple is letting us all try it out for free for 3 months. That sounds like a really great deal.

Click here to find out more about Apple Music's features and find out how it compares to other popular streaming services like Google Music, Pandora, Spotify and Rdio.

But, there's a catch. After your 3-month free trial is over, Apple will keep your subscription going and automatically charge $9.99 per month to the same credit card you use to make iTunes music, video and app purchases. Apple mentions the automatic renewal in the fine print when you sign up for the service. There are a few steps you can take to make sure Apple won't charge you if you don't want to continue your subscription.

Once you sign up, launch Apple Music and click the head icon in the top left corner of the page. When the pop up appears, click "View Apple ID" and select the Manage button underneath the Subscriptions heading.

Select your Apple Music Membership. Then, find the Automatic Renewal row and make sure it's switched to the off position. It's as easy as that.
