How to cancel Apple TV Plus before your free trial ends

Apple TV Plus is officially one week old, and those of you who are on the seven-day free trial will know exactly what that means. That lovely free ride is nearly over. If you’re not enamoured with the new streaming service − let’s face it, the reviews for the shows haven’t been great − and don’t want Apple to automatically take £4.99 out of your account, you’re going to have to cancel your Apple TV Plus subscription before your free trial ends. Here’s how to go about it.

How to cancel Apple TV Plus on your iPhone

But first, there’s something important that you need to know. You can’t cancel your free trial in advance. Apple will end it as soon as you hit the cancel button, rather than bringing it to a close exactly seven days after your free trial started, as Netflix so helpfully does for users of its free trial.

So if you’ve still got a couple of days left before your free trial is due to end, you might want to wait a bit longer before undertaking the cancellation process. Don’t leave it too long though, or else you’ll get charged!

To cancel your Apple TV Plus free trial on your iPhone, take the following steps:

In the App Store app, go to Account Profile > Subscriptions > Apple TV Plus.

The ‘Cancel Free Trial’ option will be highlighted in red. However, as mentioned above, your free trial will come to an end immediately.

In the list of your subscriptions, find the entry for Apple TV Plus and hit the Edit button next to it.

Select the highlighted ‘Cancel Free Trial’ button.
