Apple Music is a music streaming service that lets you listen to a huge range of songs for a monthly subscription fee. Rather than owning any physical media, you pay for access to the streaming service every month.
If you decide you no longer want to use Apple Music and cancel your subscription, you will lose access to your library of songs and will no longer be able to play them. Any music that is saved on your computer from before your Apple Music membership will remain untouched.
Apple Music offers a three-month introductory offer which allows you to listen to any music you want for three months. After the three months are finished, you will have to pay the monthly subscription fee.
If you signed up for the free trial and were unhappy with the service or selection of music, you may wish to cancel before the billing period starts.
The process for cancelling Apple Music is the same if you are in the free trial period or if you are a paying subscriber. Find out how to cancel Apple Music below.
If you are having trouble cancelling your Apple Music account, use our Apple contact page to find the right contact details to help. You can also go to your nearest Apple store and ask for help cancelling your subscription.
