How to cancel an App Store subscription using your iPad or iPhone

If you've subscribed to a service such as Netflix or Spotify through the App Store, and are now looking to terminate your subscription, it takes just a few simple steps to cancel. AppleInsider shows you how.

Open the Settings application on your iPad or iPhone and locate and select iTunes & App Store.

Tap on your Apple ID, then press View Apple ID. When prompted, enter your Apple ID password or verify your identity using Touch ID.

Next, select Subscriptions, followed by the one you want to cancel. Hit Cancel Subscription, then press Confirm.

Apple first launched in-app subscriptions on the iOS App Store back in 2011. App creators set the price and length of subscriptions available, whether they are weekly, monthly, yearly or otherwise.

Thanks to changes implemented last fall, in-app subscriptions are available for all types of apps on the App Store, including games, music services and magazines. They are available with various levels of service— such as basic, premium and pro memberships —and users can switch between service levels as they see fit.

For developers who make subscriptions available on the App Store, Apple takes a 30 percent cut of revenue for the first year of service. If a user maintains their subscription past the 12-month mark, Apple's cut drops to 15 percent.
