This second step is crucial. It's the bridge connecting you to your iPhone's full capabilities. It enables you to control the preferences, settings, and subscriptions tethered to your Apple ID. Tapping on your Apple ID on the iPhone provides you with a path that directs you to the world of options.

After you've opened the Settings app, you will find your Apple ID right at the top of your screen. It's not that tough to spot; it usually has your name and picture on it. So your Apple ID on your iPhone is pretty much a one-tap journey, and it's your ticket to complete control over your Apple TV+ subscription.

You might wonder, "Why do I need to tap on my Apple ID? What's the big deal?" Well, your Apple ID is the key to your Apple universe. It contains information about your subscriptions, purchases, iCloud storage, and much more. This includes your Apple TV+ subscription. With this in mind, you can envisage how important this step can be.

Despite its importance, tapping on your Apple ID shouldn't intimidate you. The menu might be packed with choices, but remember one thing: You're in control. And you're notably closer to managing that Apple TV+ subscription that has possibly been aching your digital freedom.

In the third crucial step of our "How to Cancel Apple TV+ on iPhone" walkthrough, you're going to select the Subscriptions option.

On the Apple ID screen, you'll see a list of options related to your account. Look for the option that reads Subscriptions. It's typically located near the middle of the list, nestled between iCloud and Media & Purchases. You're just one tap away from a detailed overview of all of your active subscriptions.

Upon locating Subscriptions, all you have to do next is tap on it, and voila! You'll be able to see all active subscriptions tied to your Apple ID. From Apple Music to iCloud storage, and of course, Apple TV+. Each one, neatly laid out, providing you with key details such as cost and renewal date.

At this point, you're only a few taps away from cancelling your Apple TV+ service. Now, it's worth mentioning that after following these steps, don't be surprised if you see subscriptions that you don't recall signing up for. If that's the case, those sneaky auto-renewal services might have caught you off guard. But don't worry, you're about to reclaim control of your subscriptions, starting with your Apple TV+.

You are fully equipped to proceed deeper into managing your Apple TV+ subscription. Stay tuned as we continue with this detailed walkthrough. You're doing great, and in the next section, we're escalating to the final step.

Step 4: Find and tap on the Apple TV+ subscription

Now that you’ve navigated the labyrinth of your iPhone's settings and you've accessed the Subscriptions section, you're just a few taps away from cancelling that pesky Apple TV+ subscription.
From the list of subscriptions linked to your Apple ID, you'll need to find and tap on the Apple TV+.

The subscriptions are generally listed alphabetically, so Apple TV+ likely appears towards the top. If you're having trouble, remember that the search function in the top right corner is there to help you out. It's a nifty feature that can quickly lead you to the needed subscription.

Once you've located the Apple TV+ option, don’t hesitate. Tap on it. By doing so, you'll be able to see the details of it: how much you're paying each month, when you started the subscription, when it will renew next, and the options available for you to manage the subscription.

Don't feel rushed while examining these details. It's critical to understand what you're dealing with before you make any major changes. If you want to remember the cost or any information about the subscription, consider taking a screenshot or jotting it down somewhere. Once you cancel the subscription, you won't be able to access this information as easily anymore.

Step 5: Choose the Cancel Subscription option

Now that you've found your Apple TV+ subscription in the list, you're one step closer to claiming control over your active subscriptions. This part of the process is straightforward, but it's always important to double-check before you proceed.

Look for the Cancel Subscription option. This is typically located towards the bottom of the subscription page. It's crucial to note that the Cancel Subscription button is in red, making it impossible to miss. Tap on this option, signaling your intent to cancel your Apple TV+ subscription.

Upon tapping, a confirmation screen will pop up on your device. This screen will give you one last chance to reconsider your decision. It'll display the date your subscription will officially end, allowing you to make an informed decision. This cutoff date creates an opportunity to squeeze in a few more viewing days before you finally say goodbye to Apple TV+. Remember, Apple will not refund anything, even if you've barely used the service in the current billing cycle.

At this stage, you're given two choices. You can opt to Cancel Subscription or back out and keep Apple TV+ alive by selecting Not Now. So, depending on your decision, you can go ahead to tap on the desired button.


You've now mastered how to cancel your Apple TV+ subscription on your iPhone. Remember, it's crucial to double-check before hitting that red "Cancel Subscription" button.
