News + is Apple's new digital media subscription service for $ 9.99 per month. There is a free one month trial, but you will start charging the monthly fee once your 30 days are up. While it is not so obvious, there is a way to interrupt automatic renewal immediately before loading.
Starting with iOS 12.2, the Apple News + subscription service provides high quality content from over 300 newspapers, newspapers, and premium digital publications. At $ 9.99 you get a pretty good deal to access so many different publishers at the same time, but if the money is tight and you still want to give it a shot before you commit a month, then stop Apple from billing you automatically .
Note, however, that when you interrupt the use of the instructions below, you cannot use Apple News + anymore, even if you have time for your free trial. So put on a reminder and wait until one day before the trial expires to cancel if you want to get the maximum time.
Starting a Free Month Test on Apple News +
First, before showing you how to turn off automatic renewal, let's quickly go over the free trial, if you haven't already. If you have to skip to the next section.
To join the free trial, you must have a credit or debit card attached to your Apple ID. Then open the Apple News app, tap the "News +" tab, and then click "Try it for free." On the next page, click "Try it for free" again and then confirm that you are willing to pay $ 9.99 / month after the trial. You may need to enter your Apple ID password if prompted.
When the trial period is over, Apple will start billing you every month for the $ 9.99 subscription fee starting with the "start date" shown on the confirmation screen, as above.
If you know you can't afford Apple News + in a month, you might want to cancel automatic renewal as soon as you've given News + a go and don't want to use it anymore, especially if your memory isn't the best. Follow below to do just that.
There are some ways to redo auto-renewal. The first method below is the fastest and easiest option, so I would go with it. But you can still use others, especially if you want to see what kind of other subscriptions are connected to your Apple ID, such as Apple Music, Netflix or another service.
In the News app, open the "Follows" tab and scrolls all the way to the bottom. Press "Manage Subscriptions" and then select "Cancel Free Trial" on the Edit Subscription . You will be asked to confirm that you are losing access to all magazines. Cancellations are immediate, so even if you have time for your attempt to stay, you will not even have to interrupt. Do it the day before the expiration date if you want to experience the full month before you end it.
This is the longer method, but it still works and it will let you see all your Apple ID subscriptions, not just News + one. Getting to your account settings that contains the list of your subscriptions can actually be achieved in many different ways, so just pick the one you like best.
- Settings -> Your Name -> iTunes & App Store -> Your Apple ID -> View Apple ID
- Settings -> iTunes & App Store -> Your Apple ID -> View Apple ID
- App Store -> Your Profile Image -> Your Name -> View Apple ID
- iTunes Store -> Your Apple ID (at the bottom) -> View Apple ID
Once you've selected "View Apple ID" you either enter your password or use face ID or touch ID to continue. On the Account Settings page, scroll down and select "Subscriptions" and then tap "Apple News" from the list of active subscriptions. You can also see some other subtitles you have here, if you need to do some spring cleaning for your digital wallet.
Now, just as in Method 1, press "Cancel Free Trial" and then "Confirm" on the dive. The pop-up warns you that you will lose access to all their magazines. This is immediate, so if you want to get the most out of your free trial, cancel the day before the expiration date. Once canceled, the only way to view News + magazines is to subscribe to the $ 9.99 monthly fee.
While you were able to cancel an Apple Music free trial right after signing up, it's not the case with Apple News + and it's probably a rule that was implemented and approved by all publishers to prevent users from throwing out before they have to pay.
